Horning rink claims Nelson Cashspiel prize
Deane Horning loves playing in Nelson.
He’s won the Nelson Midsummer Bonspiel.
The Purple Heart winner has also taken the top prize in the former Merchant’s Cashspiel.
So it should not by a surprise that Horning, third Don Freshi, second Rob Nobert and lead Kevin Nesbitt won the top prize in the recent Cashspiel at the Nelson Curling Club.
Horning knocked off Tom Shypitka of Cranbrook to win the A Final.
Shypitka has also been to the Brier.
In the B event, the winner was the Myron Nichol rink.
Nichol is joined by Garry Beaudry, Jamie Tedesco and Rob Babiarz.
The Cashspiel prepared the local rinks for the upcoming Kootenay Men’s Curling Playdowns this weekend at the Trail Curling Club.
Eight teams from the region are competing for two spots in the upcoming provincial tournament.
Also on the curling horizon is the BC Senior Men’s Championships February 11-16 in Trail.
