Kimberley Curling Club was the home of fast-paced exciting curling this week at the Wall Grain Mixed Doubles Classic was played out Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

The bonspiel featured many of the top teams who contested the Grand Slam in Cranbrook last weekend. The final was a battle of teammates as the Rachel Homan/John Morris rink battled people they usually play with Emma Miskew.

Mixed doubles is a game can get away on you fast and that was the case in Wednesday, as Homan/Morris were up 7-1 after four ends. It was hand shakes after that.

John McGillivray from the Kimberley Curling Club says it was an excellent event with good crowds and great volunteers.
