Not be outdone, the Club's second team who qualified for the provincial championship - Team Wakefield - captured the bronze medal after they defeated Team Weinreich of Nanaimo and Victoria in the quarterfinal but came up short against Team Klymchuk in the semifinal. Team Wakefield is skip Jay Wakefield, third Rebecca Turley, second Jeff Cawker and lead Michelle Dunn.

Many, many thanks to the team of volunteers who helped organize and host the province at the Club's first provincial championship in our new home. Kudos are also extended to the host committee and the VCC staff for everything they did before and during the event to ensure it was a success.
