MASTERS REGIONAL PLAYOFFS COMPLETED

At Fort Garry, on the 6th end, Ken Ringaert had no out-turn path so he tried a long in-turn raise but scored only the one to tie. Stolen 7th & 8th ends gave him a 6-4 win over Lionel Walz.

(December 8) Three teams from Winnipeg’s Granite and individual teams from nine different clubs across Manitoba have won invitations this week to compete in the Manitoba Credit Unions Masters Men’s Curling Championship in early March at Assiniboine Memorial.

Regional playoffs were completed late Wednesday afternoon when Laurie Hogg defeated Rob Atkins with a last shot takeout, stick for one, to win the second berth available in the East/Interlake playoff.

The dozen winners this week join defending (from two years ago, pre-Covid) champion Murray Warren, berth bonspiel winners Greg McGibbon (Granite) and Gord McTavish (Pembina) in the 16-team provincial field. The one remaining berth available will be available through the Brandon Men’s Masters bonspiel in early-January.

This week’s provincial berth winners are:
Sam Antila – Burntwood, Thompson
Dale Brooks – Hamiota
Mark Franklin – Granite, Winnipeg
Carl German – East St. Paul
Allan Gitzel – Morris
Laurie Hogg -Stonewall
Paul Kruk – Souris
Bill Menzies – Granite, Winnipeg
Jim Renwick – Brandon
Ken Ringaert – Granite, Winnipeg
Kelly Robertson – Dauphin
