Team Birston/Hall Finishes Tied for 5th at Provincials

Congratulations to Team Birston/Hall (Shelley Birston and George Hall) for finishing tied for 5th place at Curl BC's inaugural Mixed Doubles Provincial Championships held on February 1-3.

Shelley and George played five 8-end games of Mixed Doubles in just over a 24-hour period from Friday evening to Saturday evening. They finished the round-robin portion tied for second in their pool with a record of 2-1 and had to play a tie-breaker. After winning the tie-breaker, they lost their quarter-final game by one point on a measure (to the eventual winners).

For those VCC members and friends of Team Birston/Hall who went over to the North Shore Winter Club to watch the live action, they saw Shelley and George master the comeback during their run. All of their wins featured deficits of six or seven points that were overcome during the game, with the winning points scored in either the eighth or extra end.
