Jonsson wins Hardy bonspiel

Kim Jonsson skipped her team from Campbell River to be the North Island Champions

Kim Jonsson skipped her team from Campbell River to be the North Island Champions in the BC Club Challenge held in Port Hardy on March 20-22.

Her team of Lonnie Schopp third, Cynthia Lu second and Gayle Barnowski lead came out on top with a steal in the extra end against the Schultz team from the Comox Valley. Kim and Lonnie are no strangers to this competition, having won seven of 11 appearances with the majority representing the Comox Valley Curling Club and now this one from the Campbell River club.

The champions from each of the six regional BC Club Challenge Championships compete at the 16th Annual Pacific International Cup, which now doubles as The Travellers Curling Club Championship – British Columbia. The competition is at the Richmond Curling Centre from April 15-19.

The highest placing B.C. men’s and women’s teams from the event go on to represent British Columbia at The Travellers Curling Club Championships – a national event to be held at the Mayflower Curling Club in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Nov. 24-29, 2015.
