Due to low team signups, the Penticton Curling Club has cancelled its Western Mixed bonspiel originally scheduled for Feb.27 to March 1. The club posted the announcement on its Facebook page stating they had 14 teams, all local, registered. Club manager Larry Morgan said the decision was made by the board of directors as he was away on vacation.

“It’s been declining for the last couple of years,” said Morgan, adding if they had run the bonspiel, it would have been at a loss. Morgan said dates are critical now when it comes to events and the decline in signups is because of other bonspiels, such as Princeton’s women’s event taking place, as well as other events. Morgan also said they will look at changing the format of the Western Mixed bonspiel and may consider changing the date.
