Comox Valley curlers win Combined Provincial Championship

The Kelowna Curling Centre hosted the Pacific Coast and BC Interior Masters Curling Association’s 60+ curling competition March 14-17 with 32 teams representing the men’s, women’s, mixed and 70+ grand master sen’s categories.

The Pacific Coast Masters Curling Association (PCMCA) was formed in 1963 to create a competition specifically for daytime curlers aged 60 and above.

The eight-team round robin format saw the Comox Valley mixed team of Jack Holden, Mary Holden, Ron Shymko and Sharon Walker capture top honours at the event taking home the Combined Provincial Championship, winning six of the seven games. The team also won the Pacific Coast Masters Curling Association shield for having the best record of the four teams entered from the Association.

The Combined Championship Event is truly a grand event complete with team photos, parade of teams on the ice, a toast to the piper, a welcome from dignitaries, ceremonial first rock, a meet and greet, hospitality room and topped off with a gala awards banquet on the last evening.

The team wishes to thank the Comox Valley Curling Club, the CV 50+ curling league and Quality Foods for their generous support.
