In Curling Eight Is More Than EnoughDecember 9, 2010 No Comments
An eight-ender in curling may, or may not, be rarer than a hole-in-one. I’m not a stats guy and barely know how to spell Gugel, so I can’t really look this up. I do know this, however: when the golf ball is heading towards the hole, four guys aren’t trying to knock it off the green, so maybe the eight-ender is rarer.
Gordie Lamb and his team of Gerry Forsythe, Kelly Hyswick, and Bert Creasy accomplished this unusual feat in the Haney Masters Bonspiel held December 2 – 4. With a rather bizarre and almost impossible shot, the opposing skip raised Lamb’s
7th rock into the rings, and the cool and always dapper Lamb drew into the house for the perfect end!
Meanwhile the Milt Sinclair rink of Derek Robinson, Jim Anderson and Doug Carvey finished fourth.
The Abbotsford Curling Centre is up and running, and there is still time to get involved for the second half of the season. Call Tracy at 604 859-9244 to explore the possibilities.
