Three local curlers will heading to the Curl BC Masters Provincial Championships in Abbotsford after qualifying during a playdown recently in Creston.

The team is skipped by Nelson’s Gerry Beaudry and includes the Grand Forks trio of Don Bedard, Gerry Foster and Tom Bassett.

The trio from Grand Forks also won a spot in the BCIMCA/PCMA provincial championships which will be held in Kelowna the week following the Abbotsford event. Skipping the BCIMCA team is Bedard with Foster at third, Basset at second and Paul Beattie at lead.

“This achievement is a somewhat rare ‘double’ in Masters curling in the province,” said Foster.
