Local curlers competing to gain entrance into Alberta Senior Provincials

The provincial tournament will be held February 13-17 at Edmonton’s Granite Curling Club.

On the men’s side of the competition, Fort St. John will have two teams on the ice, as both Glen Godberson and Kelly Ollenberger, along with their respective rinks, will play for a spot in Edmonton.


Dawson Creek’s Darrel Viener will also be competing in that same division.

Within the women’s division, Team Jodi Busche, last year’s runner up at provincials, will represent Fort St. John, along with Team Donna Sipe. The Mile 0 City’s Marlene Maxwell will also compete in the mix.

The tournament will also include juvenile boys and girls teams, who will compete for two berths per gender at the upcoming Optimist Juvenile Provincials, March 1-3 in Sylvan Lake.

Dawson Creek’s Team Tristan Steinke is the lone team representing the region, and will be competing in the boys' division. The team will be looking for a repeat victory, as they enter the tournament as defending Alberta Champions.
