Comox Valley to host 2014 B.C. senior curling championships

Top eight men's and women's rinks aged 50 and over will be here Feb. 17-23

 

 

 

The Comox Valley Curling Centre has been chosen as the host site for the 2014 Tim Hortons BC Senior Curling Championships, Curl BC announced Monday, March 25.

The centre, located on Headquarters Road in Courtenay, is hosting a provincial curling championship for the first time since 2004.

The championship will take place from Feb. 17-23, 2014. It will feature the top eight men’s and women’s teams in the province aged 50 and over.

Comox Valley Curling Centre has a new manager and ice maker and is looking to increase its profile in the curling community.

Jack Holden, the centre’s president, said: “We have just gone through a big transition. We have a new manager in George Goodwin and a new ice-maker in Cody Hall. We’re trying to shake things up a bit at a time. Part of that is to increase our exposure.”

The Comox Valley recently hosted successful qualification events for both junior and masters curlers and now they are taking on a full championship event.

Holden said he was looking forward to welcoming the curlers to Courtenay. “We are known as a place where many baby boomers come to retire, so they will feel at home here,” he said.

The club has six sheets of ice and approximately 450 members.
