The Layton Tremblay team won the Encana Challenge division title, which is a group made up of mostly adult teams.

The Megan Smith squad won the Canwest Group Benefits Junior division and became the first girls team to win the junior division since in was started in 2009.

The Peace Curling Tour is a series of four cash spiels that were played in Fort St. John, Dawson Creek, Grande Prairie and Peace River. Participants accumulate points at all events and only the top teams made it into the championship round.

Next up for both teams are the Juvenile District playdowns in Peace River, Alta. from Feb. 5 – 7, 2016. Both teams are hoping to qualify for the Juvenile Provincial Championship for the second straight year.

Many of the players started their curling careers with the Fort St. John Curling Club’s junior program. The teams include two curlers from the Dawson Creek junior program, a player from the Chetwynd junior program and a player from the Fairview junior program.

The players also wish to thank all of the sponsors and coaches.
