BC Seniors curling championships just weeks away

Comox Valley hosting top men and women, vying for berth to Canadian finals

 

 

 

The 2014 Tim Hortons BC Senior Curling Championships are just weeks away now and the Comox Valley Curling Centre is getting ready to host over 64 curlers and their families from all over the province of B.C.

The Senior Championships, which run from Feb. 17-23, will make a significant economic impact in the region with money being spent on lodging, meals, various activities and of course shopping for the entire week of competition.

The top eight men’s and top eight ladies’ curling teams will be competing for the B.C. title, with the two winning teams heading to Yellowknife in March for the Canadian Championships.

The Tim Hortons BC Senior Curling Championships will draw out the best curlers the province has to offer, and over 60 volunteers are working very hard to make sure that these are the best games ever. Many local sponsors have stepped up to assist with the costs of hosting the games and every effort is being made to acknowledge their contributions, promote them both locally and to our visitors and thank them for their support.

There will be three draws per day: 9:30 a.m., 2:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. with the first draw at 9:30 a.m. on Feb. 18. There will not be any charge for admission to the curling rink, so why not grab a friend and come down to the rink and watch the best curling in B.C.?  The big screen TV will also be on to provide you with Olympic curling coverage as well – a true daily double. You might even win the big screen TV.

February is definitely the month for curling and the Comox Valley curling rink is the place to be.
