Barry Naimark Charity Skins Bonspiel Rocked the VCC

The 16th annual Barry Naimark Charity Skins Bonspiel came to an exciting close on Sunday afternoon. Many of Sunday's games were close affairs, and the final scorelines often did not reflect the skins money carry-overs and the paper-thin differences between some of the teams.

The 2013 Champions were Team Forrest (featured left to right: Andrew Forrest, Jan Bos, Becky Campbell and Lori Isfield). Team Forrest defeated Team Shen (Randie Shen, Sandra Comadina, Brendon Liu and Kristen Fewster) in the A final that came down to a draw to the button.

2013 event chair, Mark Robinson, recounted the exciting finish: "Team Shen drew to about an inch above the top four-foot. Then Forrest drew the button; white all around the rock. It was unbelievable."

Thank you to all 40 teams who participated and help raise funds for a very worthy cause - Aunt Leah's Society. This year's fundraising total has set another new donation record from the event: together, we raised more than $6,500. The support from the companies and individuals who donated prizes made this amazing total possible and is greatly appreciated.

Kudos are extended to everyone who contributed to make the 16th Annual Barry Naimark Charity Skins Bonspiel possible. The organizing committee - chaired by Mark Robinson - included Scott Allen, Brad Blackwell, Jan Bos, Colin Chan, Craig Coyne, Sam Corea, Siobhan Holladay, Jen Lucas, Thom Lutes, Kathy McInnes, Jerry McKenzie, and Luke Opacic. Additional volunteers who also stepped forward to help the committee ensure the four-day event ran smoothly were Dawn Chinn, Allison Dentoom, Nylene Geyer, Margaret Hilson, Gary Lubin, Carol Kent, Heather Kisbee, Marilyn Kerfoot, Ron McKay, Kathy Willey, and Margaret Yoshida. Plus, the event had added help from our junior program as Aiselinn, Noelle and Mason made contributions throughout the weekend. Lastly, all of the Club's staff from our ice team, administration team and lounge team who pitched in all weekend long deserve a round of applause.
