Only one day after the first-ever eight-ender was scored in the new home of the VCC, the feat was matched! That's right, the first two eight-enders at Hillcrest Centre were achieved within 18 hours of each other.
Playing in the third end, Team Gerhard scored their eight-ender on sheet 4 at 1:35pm on October 4, 2011. Pictured to the left, skip John Gerhard, third John Bell, second Bill Burrell, and lead Barrie Brown have managed to score the fourth eight-ender at the VCC in the past 10 months.
In only the second week of league curling in the brand new home of the Vancouver Curling Club, the first Eight-Ender was accomplished by "North of 40" of the Pacific Rim Curling League!
North of 40 scored their eight-ender at 7:56pm on October 3, 2011 while playing the fourth end of their game on sheet five - the first-ever eight-ender at Hillcrest Centre.
The third eight-ender at the VCC in the past 10 months, North of 40 achieved this rare feat with Skip Rick Feeney needing to throw a draw on his final stone. "In 35 years of curling, this is the first time I have ever had an 8-ender," said skip Rick Feeney."It's a once-in-a-lifetime achievement!"
