Win Bronze at Canada 55+ Games
The Bev Atkins team from the Manitou Curling Club travelled to Saint John, New Brunswick where they represented Manitoba at the Canada 55+ Games August 20 - 24, 2018.
Nine provinces were represented and split in two pools to play a round robin. In their pool of teams, Manitoba played Ontario, New Brunswick, Yukon and Nova Scotia to finish the round robin undefeated with a record of 4-0.
This gave them a bye into the semi final where they would meet New Brunswick again, with the winner advancing to the gold medal game. The team would lose this semi final game, but would then play in the Bronze Medal match up against Nova Scotia.
After coming from behind in a very hard fought battle, Team Manitoba would come out on top and win the Bronze!
The team experienced some great eastern hospitality and were treated to an awesome maritime experience by the Saint John host committee.
Bev added, “We would like to thank everyone for all your support and good wishes sent to us before and during the competition. We had an amazing experience!”
