Princeton Special Olympics hosts Fun Three Team Curling Tournament

Three teams enjoyed a bonspiel at the Princeton Curling Club

The Princeton Special Olympics team would like to extend a huge thank you to the Princeton Curling Club for donating the ice time to hold the Fun Three Team Curling Tournament and for also donating hats and scarves for prizes. Fourteen curlers attended with the first place red ribbon going to Penticton Special Olympics. (Black jackets with a large red maple leaf on the back) Second place ribbon went to the Princeton team who were sporting their blue and black competition shirts and jackets.

Third place went to the South Okanagan Special Olympics team who had participated in their very first curling tournament.

Coach Ian of Princeton, Coach Lee of South Okanagan and coaches Mona and Donna of Penticton were all pleased as their athletes performed draws and take outs in the Princeton rink.  Thank you to Round the Corner Café for the tasty chili, delicious muffins and healthy fruits provided for the athletes. Also, thank you to Subway for donating coupons for all our athletes to use at their convenience, especially those on the way home to Penticton and South Okanagan.
