Entries have now closed for the PEI Credit Unions Provincial Seniors Curling Championships, with men’s and women’s divisions for curlers 50 years of age and over, which take place February 10-13 at the Charlottetown Curling Complex. Four men’s and four women’s rinks have signed up.
Defending champions are the Rod MacDonald and Kim Dolan rinks from this year’s host curling facility. MacDonald, and Mark O’Rourke from his team last year, are back as members of the Robert Campbell rink, while Kevin Champion and Mark Butler from last year’s winning team are on a rink skipped by Phil Gorveatt, who skipped last year’s runner-up rink. The Dolan rink is not entered this year.
