Hockey and curling at the North Thompson Sportsplex

By K.A. Pendergast

This past weekend saw the North Thompson Sportsplex hold the annual Clearwater Hawks Old Timers tournament. There were eight teams with two divisions.

One was 35+yrs and the other was 45+yrs. This made for a perfect line-up with each team playing three games and the best heading to the finals of their respective divisions.

The 45+ group held Clearwater’s own Hawks who were the hosts, as well as Ashcroft, Kamloops and Williams Lake. The 35+ division held Arrow (Kamloops), Salmon Arm, Quesnel and another local team called the Clearwater Blackhawks.

The yearly tournament had a number of returning players and teams to make for a fun-filled weekend of Hockey. The teams held many long-time players whose skill and knowledge of the game shone through the plays.

The other side of the Sportsplex this weekend held the annual Ladies Curling Bonspiel. This year it hosted 12 teams, with at least two from 100 Mile House and many from Clearwater as well as a number of returning teams from near and far. (Usually including Barriere, Jasper and many others)

The fun theme for the weekend was the letter K. This made for an interesting costume night on Friday. The teams were made up of many returning players and a few newbies. The weekend always holds a banquet and fun-filled draws and games.
