Eight-ender scored on Friday night

Hanafin 8-ender

It's not too often you see the VCC scoreboards with eights on them, but it happened in the first end of a B&B League game on Friday, Jan. 12. The Mike Hanafin team stole the eight points. "To their credit, our opponent tried to draw for one instead of just hitting an open rock, but they were a bit heavy," Hanafin said. Left to right are Hanafin, lead Sherry Cavallin, second Dick King and third Fred Cleutinx.
