Category : News Item 2017

After a week in Point Claire, QC, playing in hot humid weather, the Mixed Pairs championship concluded on Tuesday.  Christie Grahame and Mary Wright from BC secured the Gold medal after strong play all week long, but our own AB Roy Riege and Pat Vos gave them a battle before settling for the Silver medal in a 16-20 game.  The Québec-B team of Maurice and Murielle Beauchamp won the bronze over Saskatchewan’s Lois Kos and Brandon Watson in a 25-14 final game.
