Uranium problem studied Regional District continues to seek solution for Faulder water

Hairspray on



by Black Press The deadline has been extended to Feb. 19 for a request for proposals for removing uranium from the water supply at Faulder north of Summerland. Six years after Interior

Health issued a warning over the uranium content in Faulder’s water, the regional district is still figuring out the most cost-effective solution to the problem. Last month the Regional District of OkanaganSimilkameen issued a request for proposals from companies interested in supplying the equipment necessary to remove uranium from

the water. Doug French, the RDOS public works manger, said the RFP was issued “just to see what’s on the market” and at what price. He’s also wrestling with the issue of permanent supply. The level of the Meadow Valley aquifer, from which about 80 homes in Faulder are supplied, dropped dramatically in 2010 and forced the RDOS to look at other

options. The best alternative was a $2-million pipeline that would have connected the community to the Summerland municipal supply, but it was ruled out as too costly. The Meadow Valley aquifer recharged in 2011 and removed some of the urgency from the situation, and the RDOS is still trying to decide whether it should keep its current well, drill a new one, or

buy one that’s already in production. French said he’d prefer to use the existing well, but its ongoing ability to supply the area remains “largely a great unknown.” On the other hand, “If I drop a new well into that aquifer, I’m still going to get uranium. So I’ll still have the problem of getting it out.” See WATER Page 2

Opposition to bullying

Carla McLeod Special to the Summerland Review

The Summerland Bully Free Organization held a rally on Main Street Friday morning. Students and teachers, along with Council members were filmed for an upcoming video to be posted on YouTube in time for Anti-Bullying Day on Feb. 27.  The rally cry was “Summerland is Bully Free” as participants hugged and high-fived each other.

1,200 attend anti-bullying rally by Barbara Manning Grimm

Summerland is getting a reputation as a community that doesn’t stand for bullying. Friday morning’s anti-bullying rally in downtown Summerland saw more than 1,200 in attendance, most of them wearing pink t-shirts to signify opposition to bullying. The rally was organized by the Summerland

Bully Free Organization, led by Tina Martin. It was attended by students from Summerland Secondary School and Giant’s Head School as well as members of the public. The crowd gathered on Main Street between Victoria Road and Henry Avenue, an area that was closed to traffic for the event. The rally was designed

to draw attention to Anti-Bullying Day which takes place Feb. 27 and to promote anti-bullying initiatives with the goal of making Summerland a bully-free community. The rally was videotaped for a show which will make its first appearance at the Summerland municipal council meeting Feb. 25 and then be posted on YouTube and Facebook.

The committee will also be showing the documentary Bully Feb. 26 at Centre Stage Theatre at 6:30 p.m. Admission is free. A question and answer period will follow the video. The events in Summerland are related to the Feb. 20 nationwide Pink Shirt Day. Martin, a mother of three small children, said she is pleased with the response to the rally.

“I think it went well. I am pleased how many people came out and supported this.” The committee plans to host more anti-bullying events this year, including workshops and presentations possibly on business-related bullying and elder abuse. More information is available at and on the group’s Facebook page.

He’s hoping the way forward will be made clearer by the estimated costs for uranium treatment put forward by vendors who respond to the RFP, which originally was to close Feb. 5 but has been extended to Feb. 19. Uranium content only became an issue in 2007 when Interior Health issued a waterquality advisory that followed from Health Canada’s decision to decrease the acceptable uranium concentration in drinking water from 0.1 milligrams per litre to 0.02. Faulder’s water averages 0.028 mg/l, according to the RFP. Michael Brydon, the RDOS director for the area, said his constituents have been “extremely patient.” “There’s only 80 houses on that system and we’re looking at some very big numbers, so we have to move very carefully. We just can’t afford to do something and have a huge budget overrun,” he explained. “With this project we’ve sort of been waiting to see how the aquifer reacts, because using the existing aquifer is by far the cheaper alternative. But on the other hand, (the level) fluctuates so

wildly we’re trying to collect some data and the longer (it’s collected) the better.” There was up to $1 million in grant money for the project, Brydon said, although the total available now will depend on what systems the RDOS selects.

He confirmed, though, that there’s still no timeline to sink the Faulder water issue for good. “It’s moving so slowly, I can’t give you an answer,” Brydon said. “We have to get moving on this year though, because the grants do have deadlines.”

A water-quality advisory has been issued for people on the Garnett Valley water system. Low chlorine levels have been detected as a result of a partial failure of the chlorine disinfection system, according to a news release issued by the municipality. The district recommends that children, the elderly, people with weakened immune systems and anyone else seeking additional protection use only water that has been boiled for one minute. Alternatively, they can use water from another source. The advisory does not apply to the Summerland municipal water supply.


A public service message from Bell, Jacoe & Company

Legal Phrases in Pop Culture A recent article by Jeffrey Miller in the Canadian Bar Association's magazine the "National" referred to legally minded phrases that people use all the time likely without knowing their exact origins. Here are two: "Round up the usual suspects" - Movie buffs and Humphrey Bogart fans will instantly recognise that as the classic line spoken by Claude Rains as "Louis Renault" the French Vichy Prefect of Police in the movie "Casablanca". Of course, Louis knew who had committed the crime, but he was in no rush to uncover the real culprit, our hero "Rick". That line is said to have inspired the idea for a more recent movie called appropriately enough "The Usual Suspects". A very good movie known for its all-star cast and its surprising final minute reveal. "Don't do the crime if you can't do the time" - Many younger people will say that they have heard Snoop Dogg or the group UB40 sing this line. Many older people will wonder who Snoop Dogg or UB40 are! The reality is that the line was first sung by Sammy Davis Jr. in the mid-1970s. It was written into a theme song for the TV Cop show "Baretta" starring Robert Blake. The rest of the story is of course that Mr. Blake went on to have quite a checkered legal history.

our pick

A safe water supply Concerns about the safety of Faulder’s water supply remain a problem for the Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen. In 2007, the Interior Health Authority issued a water quality advisory because of the uranium content. At the time, Health Canada had decreased the acceptable uranium concentration in drinking water from 0.1 milligrams per litre to 0.02 milligrams per litre. Faulder’s water averages 0.028 milligrams per litre. When the advisory was issued, Faulder residents raised concerns about the level of uranium in their drinking water supply. Anyone on a community water system should expect to have a good and safe water supply, but bringing Faulder’s water up to the standards will be a challenge. There are around 80 homes in Faulder and any solution will have a high per-unit cost. In addition to the high level of uranium, the Regional District has an additional water problem in Faulder, since the aquifer level in the region has dropped. While the aquifer level recharged in 2011, the low level earlier has forced the regional district to examine its options to supply Faulder and area residents with a steady and safe water supply. In 2010, the Regional District considered a $2-million pipeline to connect Faulder to Summerland’s water supply, but that option was later ruled out as being too costly. The Regional District is now accepting proposals for systems to remove the uranium from the water supply. No matter which option is eventually selected, it will prove costly. Still, there is no way the Regional District can choose to simply ignore the supply problems in Faulder or leave residents to find solutions on their own. This is one instance where there are no quick, cheap or simple solutions.

Efforts are underway to raise money to help with the expenses of a six-yearold boy going through a series of heart surgeries. Karsen Skoczylas has undergone a series of surgeries and now needs further treatment. Once again, the community is working to help a family in need. The fundraising efforts will provide some needed relief during this difficult time.

Independent MLAs have a dream VICTORIA – Imagine a province where party leaders are chosen in an independently supervised vote, with 12-yearolds, dead people and pets prevented from voting. Imagine a province where roving gangs of influenceseekers aren’t allowed to join multiple parties, and the rule is actually enforced. One where corporations and Tom Fletcher unions have to advertise in their own name instead of financing political parties and then disclosing millions in donations months after the election is over. Imagine a province where elections are held based on audited financial statements, not a collection of election promises that will be dismissed as a work of fiction by the new regime if the incumbent party is defeated. A cat joined the B.C. Liberal Party to support Christy Clark. Adrian Dix won the NDP leadership with the help of bags of $10 bills stapled to new memberships. As parties go to online voting, multiple PIN numbers may be activated from the same phone number or the same address. These and other glaring problems with our party-based political system were highlighted last week in a set of reforms proposed by three independent MLAs. Vicki Huntington broke the party choke-hold on B.C. politics by getting elected as an

independent in Delta South in 2009. Bob Simpson was kicked out of the NDP caucus shortly after winning re-election for the party in Cariboo North, because he dared to criticize then-leader Carole James for a lack of policy specifics. They were belatedly joined by Abbotsford South MLA John van Dongen, who quit the B.C. Liberals in an orchestrated move to the B.C. Conservatives, and then quit that party soon after. Van Dongen does not have

BC authority to supervise party leadership votes, the way it does elections and referenda. There are unknown costs for this, and other problems. The independents had high hopes for one fundamental reform, moving B.C.’s set election date from the spring to the fall. This would take a simple amendment. The idea is for the government to table the annual budget, present the audited public accounts for the previous year, then have an election

Imagine a province where elections are held based on audited financial statements, not a collection of election promises that will be dismissed as a work of fiction by the new regime if the incumbent party is defeated. the credibility of the others to speak on integrity, given his self-serving party antics and his questionable decision to hire his fiancée and pay her one and a half salaries to serve as his constituency assistant. Leaving that aside, there are some good ideas in the independents’ reform package. One is to give backbench MLAs a meaningful role in policymaking. Simpson gave the example of Prince George MLA Shirley Bond’s term as education minister, where she had to reverse ministry policies that didn’t make sense in rural school districts. The all-party standing committee on education could have prevented this error, he said, but it didn’t because it never meets. The party voting irregularities described above could be addressed by giving Elections

that rests on tested financial statements and initial results for the current forecast. Both the B.C. Liberal Party and the NDP have expressed support for this idea. The independents suggest that this brief three-week legislative session is a good time to do it, so the next government can implement it. I asked Mike de Jong, the B.C. Liberal finance minister and house leader, if he would consider it. He allowed that it is interesting, but it’s not contemplated for the pre-election session. That will be dominated by returning the provincial sales tax, and the usual jousting over untested spending and revenue proposals.

bad apples A Penticton motorist has received a 90-day driving prohibition following some foolish and dangerous choices. The driver, who had been consuming alcohol, was stopped in Trout Creek early on Feb. 9. He was driving 140 kilometres an hour at the time. Such a rate of speed, combined with the effects of alcohol, could have ended tragically. An impaired or careless driver is a menace to everyone else on the roads.

Spaces needed for French Immersion

Dear Editor: I am writing to express my concerns about access to Late French Immersion Education, particularly for Summerland students. Late French Immersion is offered to School District 67 students beginning in Grade 6. The school board recently gave approv-

al for three classes of 30 students in Penticton and just one class in Summerland. In previous years, Summerland students have commuted to Penticton in order to access this program, resulting in the loss of some of our brightest young minds to Penticton schools.   Once they become

part of the school system in Penticton, they often choose to complete their secondary school studies there. In addition, some students (a majority of whom were from Summerland) were not selected into the program in either location. This year, more than 140 students

applied for the 120 available spaces in School District 67. In Summerland, there were 44 applications for the 30 spots.   Penticton received 96 applications for their 90 spots, making it unlikely that they will be able to accommodate transfer students from Summerland this year.   These numbers do

not include applications received after the Feb. 1 deadline, and applications from out-of-catchment students. This means that between 20 and 25 students in School District 67 will be completely excluded from any access to this program this year, an all-time high. Student selection

into the program will be by lottery. Please join us in advocating for the creation of another French Immersion class, preferably in Summerland, so that all interested students can have the benefit of this excellent educational program. You can find more details on our website at www.par-

Legislature has not met for eight months Dear Editor: Wow, our province’s Legislative Assembly again started to work on Feb. 13. The last time our Legislative Assembly sat was on May 31, 2012. Fundamental to

our parliamentary process is an active Legislative Assembly where the elected government answers to our elected representatives. The passage of laws, the discussions of budgets and financial statements and

the opportunity for the opposition parties to question government actions are fundamental to our democratic process. None of this took place. Since May 31, our Legislative Assembly has not met.

Yet, in contrast, since May 31, Alberta’s Assembly has met 38 times, Saskatchewan’s 34 times, New Brunswick’s 35 times and Newfoundland’s 33 times. Either the Liberal party has snubbed

our province’s citizens or the Liberals have no understanding of our parliamentary system. In reality, British Columbia has been without a representative government for eight months. If the public gives

Christy Clark and the Liberal Party one vote in the next election, that is one vote too many. And this letter is coming from someone who once voted Liberal. David E. Gregory Summerland which also has links to our Facebook page and Twitter account. Please consider writing a letter of support to the School Board trustees (addresses available at the school district website www.sd67. Diana Fort and Ryan Moseley Summerland

Thanks for the ride

Dear Editor: On a cold and snowy day in December at 6:45 am. I ordered a cab for 10 a.m. Sitting and waiting for the cab which was 20 minutes late, I thought, “To heck with this,” and started walking to town. I had to go to the Bank of Montreal and thought I’d phone a cab from there. I was walking on the opposite side of the road when a young lady came out from the firehall. I started talking to her. I found her name was Allana Gould and I told her my story of sitting on my walker seat waiting for my cab to take me to lab at the Summerland Hospital for a blood test. She said, “Hop into my van and I’ll take you back to the lab.” I did this and she took me to the lab, waited for me and took me back to town to the Bank of Montreal. Truly she was a Good Samaritan on a very dismal start of my Wednesday. She renewed my faith in the human race and I’d like to say thank you to Allana Gould of the firehall. Her actions really did make a difference in my life. Eva Rea Summerland

She is, however, soon captivated by the king’s physician Dr. Johann Struensee, a strong proponent of the principles of Enlightenment who increasingly influences the king.

Delegation to visit Friendship City Summerland brings help to African city by John Arendt A delegation of seven people from Summerland will be in Kahama, Tanzania this month to bring donations and provide assistance. Brenda Lowe, president and founder of the One Person Project and organizer of the trip, said a container of items collected from Summerland and the South Okanagan has already been sent to Tanzania. The container is traveling overland to Kahama and will be set up in the hospital compound next to the last one shipped by the project. It is about 2.5 by three by 12 metres and is filled with hospital equipment, teacher resource materials, text and library books, sports uniforms and equipment, sustainable business items and bins of items that will be given to vulnerable families. The team this year consists of Dr. Glen Burgoyne; psychologist Nancy Comeau; registered nurses

Twyla Burgoyne, Pene Berthelson, LeAnne Davies and Anna Toon, as well as Lowe. The medical team will be teaching at the hospital and Lowe will be overseeing the emptying and distribution of the container contents. The hospital in Kahama has one doctor to serve a popu-

lation of one million people. For Lowe, this is the seventh trip she is making to Kahama. Lowe said interest in the One Person Project has been growing. “We’re doing really well and it’s getting better all the time,” she said. She added that the delegates are all pay-

ing their own travel costs. Fundraising from the One Person Project is not used to cover travel expenses. Summerland and Kahama have a Friendship City agreement in place. Since 2007, the One Person Project has provided more than $400,000 worth of resources and equip-

ment to families and organizations in Kahama and the Muhanga region of Rwanda. “What makes us so successful is that we go every year,” Lowe said. More information on the project and a link to a blog on the trip can be found online at

Early French immersion class planned by Barbara Manning Grimm

A new early French immersion program in the Okanagan Skaha School District would likely begin with one class in Summerland and two classes in Penticton. The program is currently in the study phase and wouldn’t begin until 2014 if approved later this spring by the board of the Okanagan Skaha School District. It

would start children in kindergarten and Grade 1 and complement the existing late French immersion classes that begin in Grade 6. Assistant superintendent Dave Burgoyne is leading the study and told the school district board’s education committee on Jan. 29 that based on parent surveys, he expects 18 to 20 would enrol in Summerland and 45 to 50 in Penticton.

Help for Agur Lake Camp

Agur Lake Camp Society Volunteer Katie Bowling (right) gratefully accepts a cheque for $2,500 from Wilma Moore of the IODE. The IODE Ladies have made this donation in support of the building of accessible trails at the camp. Agur Lake is a camp being developed west of Summerland so that special needs persons and their families can enjoy a barrier free wilderness camp and recreational facility.



The space options for Summerland are Giant’s Head and Trout Creek Elementary Schools, while Carmi and Wiltse Elementary Schools are the possibilities for Penticton. He cautioned that the projections are for information only and will form part of the feasibility study presented to trustees in May for a decision. The school board also learned at its regular meeting Feb. 4 that administrators are prepared to run three Grade 6 classes in late French immersion in Penticton next year, based on 96 student applications received, and just a single class in Summerland based on 43 applications there. Trustee Linda Van Alphen of Summerland asked if administrators would consider adding another class in Summerland, but superintendent Wendy Hyer said the proposed arrangement makes the best use of available resources. Hyer added that everyone on last year’s Summerland wait list eventually made it into the program.

Donations sought for boy Donations are being sought to help with the expenses of a six-year-old Summerland boy who is going through a series of heart surgeries. Karsen Skoczylas has been in Vancouver for months at a time for six operations, four of which were open-heart surgeries. He was born with a ventricular septal defect which consisted of two holes in his heart. He underwent his first surgery when he was nine days old. The holes were successfully closed, but a problem with his aortic valve was not repaired. His mother, Mesha Skoczylas, has been putting her life and work on hold to deal with her little boy’s health complications. Friends of the

family are trying to raise some money to help with expenses. Donations are being accepted at the Summerland Soleil Tanning Salon at 1-13219 North Victoria Rd. A dance class planned for next week will also raise money for the family as well as for Summerland’s dry grad. It is a Zumba dance class at Summerland Middle School Feb. 18 from 6:30 to 7:15 p.m. Helping teach the class will be members of the Summerland Steam. Proceeds from the tickets will be split between the family and the dry grad. The salsa dance fitness class for adults is usually taught on Monday and Wednesday nights by Mary Ann Chartrand.

Summerland Review Thursday, February 14, 2013




Heritage quiz answers The Feb. 7 Summerland Review featured a Summerland history quiz. Here are the answers to the quiz. 1. Nicola Prairie, Siwash Flat and West Summerland were all names for the area now known as downtown Summerland. 2. The Pierre family was part of the Okanagan First Nation, the Penticton Indian Band and the Interior Salish Tribe 3. John Moore Robinson thought there was gold in the hills. Sir Thomas Shaughnessy thought it was a good investment. 4. The name Summerland came from a spiritualist hymn sung at séances. 5. Transportation used by the early settlers to reach Summerland was horseback. 6. The first person to pre-empt land was Alex McLennan, then the Gartrells. 7. James Ritchie arrived here in 1903 from Manitoba. He started the Garnett Valley Lumber Company, he was involved in a land exchange with the Pierre family. 8. Summerland (on the lake) began in 1902 but was not incorporated until

1906. 9. Summerland has had two main townsites that came together with one post office in 1964. In the 1920s there were many fires in Lowertown. In 1956 the main highway through the Okanagan was rerouted up Summerland Hill. Due to the clay cliffs, there was little room for the town to grow. 10. Fruit ranching was responsible for the growth of Summerland. 11. The climate in this area was ideal for the fruit industry except it is semi-arid. Many kilometres of flumes were constructed to carry water. 12. Other related industries included a box making factory, packing houses and a cherry pitting plant. 13. The Dominion Experimental Farm is now called the Pacific Agri-Food Research Centre. 14. In 1915 the Kettle Valley Railway was completed. 15. Winslow, Crump, Kirton and Thirsk were stops along the railway. 16. The Tudor Revival architecture style or Olde English was chosen because there are

many buildings still standing in Summerland that were built around 100 years ago. These include; the ReMax Realty building, Zias Stonehouse Restaurant and St. Stephen’s Anglican Church. 17. In 1967, the year that Canada celebrated its centennial, most of the streets in Summerland were renamed after pioneer families. 18. Summerland has been home to quite a few celebrities including George Ryga, playwright, Irvine Adams, pastel artist and Nicole Dunsdon, the last Miss Canada.

Thursday, February 14, 2013 Summerland Review

Hilgersom swims to gold Madison Hilgersom, 12, struck gold at the Swim BC AA Short Course Championships over the weekend in Surrey. She won the 12-year-old 100 metre Backstroke in a time of 1:14.93. “The win is impressive, especially after a difficult race in the 200m Individual Medley thirty minutes before,” said Orca head coach Delano Ducheck. “This is Maddy’s first provincial meet,

and I always knew she had the endurance but the question was would she have the front end speed.” Hilgersom, a Grade 7 student at Summerland Middle School, had to come from behind a Fort St. John swimmer to win gold and also qualified for the AAA Championships, the highest level swimming competition in the province for her age. Also representing Summerland were

Olli Dickson is in his first season with the Summerland Steam. His hometown is Penticton, and he graduated from Selkirk Secondary School in 2011. He was born in 1993 and started playing hockey in 1997 at the initiation level. Olli’s favourite hockey memory is his first WHL start in 2011 with the Tri City Americans. His favourite pre-game meal is spaghetti noodles covered in tomato soup. His favourite movies are Tropic Thunder and Black Hawk Down; his favourite song is Pop That by French Montana (Ft Drake, Rick Ross, Lil Wayne). Olli’s favorite saying is, “I love my friends.” HOME GAME SCHEDULE

Dan Nixon, 14 and Brittany Parliament, 14. Nixon qualified in three finals and just missed the podium by 0.2 seconds. “Considering this is only Danny’s second year of competitive swimming, it is a great result.” Ducheck said. “Danny is a natural competitor who still has a lot of room for improvement as he learns the technical details of the sport.” Nixon had three top eight finishes, fourth in the 50 freestyle, tied for sixth in the 100 freestyle and sixth in the 100 butterfly. Parliament, 14, made her return to the Orca club after spending two years on Vancouver Island. Because her birthday

was the week before, she was forced to qualify in the older 14-year-old age category for this meet. “In terms of best times, Brittany had an outstanding meet, taking off a combined 27 seconds over five races,” said Ducheck. “Any time you are improving your own personal best times, you are moving in the right direction.” Since the Orca Swim Club is growing fast, Delano is setting their goals high for next year. “We want to bring a dozen or more swimmers to this competition next year,” he said. “We have many young and fiercely competitive swimmers coming up the ranks, so we are expecting a landslide

of qualifiers for this meet over the next two years.” This month is a busy month for ORCA with their fundraiser Swima-thon this weekend, Feb. 16 from 4 to 6:30 p.m. where swimmers will be completing a goal of 200 lengths or five kilometres in two hours. Also that weekend, Orca swimmer Jamie Ferguson, 15, heads to Saskatoon for Western Championships, the age group swim meet that pits the best swimmers from British Columbia to Manitoba. Tw o weeks later, Feb. 28 to March 3, Ferguson, Hilgersom and Haley Berrisford have all qualified for BC AAA Championships in Victoria.

World Championships in St. Moritz finished up last Sunday with the fourman event. None of the three Canadian teams had good final results. Canada 1 placed 15th, Canada 2 18th and Canada 3 21st. The coaches’ decision to change the teams around for World Championships was surprising and didn’t produce the results they were hoping for. One doesn’t need to be an expert to realize that four 200plus pound athletes running at top speed and then jumping into a bathtub-size sled need a little time to work together and get their actions synchronized. Most of the top teams have been together for at least

a season, some for many seasons. As the announcer of the World Cup races, Martin Haver, says over and over, the start and load is a huge factor, because it sets up the velocity right from the beginning. However, Haver was complimentary about the driving of Summerland’s Justin Kripps, saying he has had a “standout rookie season” and, “We can expect to see great things from this young pilot.” Team Kripps left St. Moritz with an excellent 12th place finish in two-man (with Neville Wright on brakes), a wellearned sixth place finish driving as Canada 2 in the team event (with Luke Demetre on brakes), and a 21st place in

four-man (with James McNaughton, Tim Randall and Graham Rinholm). There is still one World Cup race left in the season and it will be in Sochi, Russia, home of the 2014 Winter Olympics. Team Canada travelled to Sochi from St. Moritz and have been excitedly tweeting and posting photos of the brand new Olympic sliding facility. They, along with the other competing countries have been using 10 days to train and learn the idiosyncrasies of the new track before the World Cup event this weekend. So far the reaction has been positive about beautiful facilities, exciting track and spectacular scenery.

Curling Summerland Curling Club Results: Feb. 4 to 8. The BCIMCA 70+ master men’s Zone 3 curling playdowns were held at the Summerland Curling Club Feb. 5 to 7 with skip Dale Abrey third rob Robinson, second Lorne Schwindt and lead John Blashko advancing to play in the Provincials in Nanaimo March 5 to 8. A total of six teams entered, with three from Summerland. They were Stan Green, Warren Parker and Hector Cartier. There was one Osoyoos team and two from Kelowna. The Stan Green team from Summerland played off in the final game of A side and Abrey from B side. It was a very close game, tied up coming home, the Green team with hammer. There were a lot of Summerland spectators to cheer on the Green team. Having last shot in the eighth end, the odds were in Green’s favour but his last shot was a difficult one as the Abrey team did a good job of cluttering up the front of the house. Thanks to everyone for coming out, and the best of luck to the Abrey team in Nanaimo. Monday senior men: Dale Abrey defeated Paul Cowen, Eric Johnson defeated Hector Cartier, Warren Parker defeated Bob Ezart, Stan Green defeated Lionel Coleman. Monday evening men: Stan Green defeated Steve Clement, Rick Drewnisz defeated Ken Rae, Russ Lemke tied Rob Robinson, Mike Lemke tied Gary Raymond. Tuesday morning mixed: Bill Penman tied Jerry Lidin, Murray Brown defeated Bob Ezart, Ev Gillespie defeated John Nicolson. Tuesday evening ladies: Wendi Archer defeated Sue Johnston, Betty Raymond defeated Judy Beck, Lil Blashko defeated Diane Krancenblum, Michelle Robinson defeated Gail Ostaficiuk. Wednesday evening men: Ken Rae tied Gary Raymond, Eric Cooper defeated Dave Gartrell, Steve Clement tied Glen Brennan, Gary Wingerak defeated Rick Drewnisz. Thursday morning ladies: Diana Leitch tied RoseMarie Fenrich, Betty Raymond defeated Diane Krancenblum, Rose McNeill defeated Ev Gillespie. Thursday evening open: Dale Abrey defeated Jodie Brennan, Gary Raymond defeated Barry Borrett, John McKay defeated Tony Blashko, Russ Lemke tied Glen Brennan. Thursday late evening: John Egyed defeated Eric Johnson, Don St. John defeated Ken Rae. Friday evening mixed: John Nicolson defeated Ron Robinson, Nick Machuik tied Dave Tether, Steve Favel defeated Ed Harris. Friday late evening mixed: Tracy Waddington defeated Dave Hood, Bonnie Young defeated Ian Rogers, Allen Tower defeated Mark Cameron, Blair Stuckey defeated Val Utigard. Tip of the week: When it is the skips turn to deliver their stone usually the third holds the broom in the house.
