The islands held the first annual Haida clanspiel on the weekend and it was a fun-filled event enjoyed by experienced and new curlers alike.
The A event winner was the Tsiij Gitanee clan skipped by Steven Edwards who defeated a very tough Stastaas clan led by Bev Kennedy.
The B event final was taken by the other Tsiij Gitanee team skipped by Chris Gagnon in a close game against the Kunn Laanaas clan skipped by Duane Smith.
The C event final was taken by the Yahgu Laanaas clan led by Archie Stocker over the St`langng Laanaas clan skipped by Maureen La Croix.
There are many thanks to all who volunteered on the weekend. The Haida clanspiel committee would like to thank James Sawyer, Myles Edgars, Sarah’s gift shop, Maxine Edgars, Terry Russ, Sandie Gagnon, Gwaii Trust, C.B.I. fisheries, and Kevin La Croix for the donations of prizes and trophies. The next and final bonspiel of the year will be the businesspersons, that will be held the weekend of April 8-10. Come out and enjoy the islands “coolest” sport. There will be one day of public skating following the last bonspiel.
