Fraser Lake hosted the Mixed Curling Regional Playdowns on February 18, 19 and 20.

There were five teams in total with two teams from Prince Rupert, two teams from Terrace and one team from Prince George.  Curling started at 7 p.m. on Friday night, with Michael Dahms losing his first game 6-10 to Terrace’s team Warren Copeland.  From there on there was no looking back for the Michael Dahms team from Prince George.

They played  at 9 a.m. on Saturday against the Travis Bernhardt team from Prince Rupert and were victorious with a score of 8-3.  Back on the ice at 2 p.m. they curled against Prince Ruperts’ Allan Greens’ team winning 11-5.  The Dahms team was on a roll and were facing a rematch against team Copeland, this time it was a much closer match with the Dahms winning with a score of 9-8.

Michael Dahms team had secured a spot as the ‘B’ winners in the semi final game against the Terrace’s team Evans.  John Evans, Sylvia Griffith, Mitch Griffith and Joan Kucharyshen had succeeded in winning the ‘A’ side of the double knockout playdown and would face off against the Dahms team on Sunday morning at 9 a.m.  One more victory for the Evans team and they would become the Provincial reps from the northern region of B.C.  Michael Dahms team would not go down without a fight and the game went into an extra end with Dahms team winning with a score of 10-8.  Back on the ice for the teams at 1 p.m. for the winners take all game.  The final game was close to the sixth end and from there on the Dahms stole their way to the victory and the honour to represent this region at the Mixed Provincials in Prince Rupert from March 12 – 19.

Congratulations to the Dahms team and Good luck at Provincials.  Everyone totally enjoyed the display of curling that they watched at the Fraser Lake Curling Rink.
