Three-peat for Schneider at 2014 CGCC
For the third consecutive year in a row, the Vancouver Curling Club's Team Schneider solidified their hold as the undisputed Canadian Gay Curling Champions.
During the intense all-Vancouver re-match, Team Schneider (Skip Stephen Schneider, Third Shawn Eklund, Second Shelley Birston and Lead Glenn Smith) came out on top against long-time rivals Team Thompson (Skip Aaron Thompson, Third Jack Holmes, Second Brian Oldham and Lead Mark Trowell). Both teams are long-time members of the VCC and the Pacific Rim Curling League.
This year's event (which also included the Icebreaker Bonspiel) was hosted by Edmonton's Curling With Pride at the Granite Curling Club, where the inaugural CGCC was held in 2005 with Thompson taking the very first CGCC title.
We are extremely proud of the skill level displayed at the gay National level by our VCC teams. Congrats Team Schneider for a well-earned three-peat!
