A Comox Valley Curling Club (CVCC) women’s team skipped by Deb Goodwin with vice Lonnie Schopp, second Kim Jonsson and lead Lori Ross are the the Dominion Club Champions representing British Columbia at the Nov. 21-26 Canadian championship in Richmond, B.C.

The Dominion Curling Club Championship is an annual event for men’s and women’s curling teams who have won their respective local club championships.  Winning teams from the event will be “The Dominion Club Champions” and play down to produce a provincial/territory champion from all 10 provinces and three territories, plus a separate entry for northern Ontario, who will then compete at the national level.

The competition gives grass roots curling teams from every corner of the country an opportunity to compete in national level competition. For these local players, the challenge of playing other provincial teams is something they’re eager to experience.

“We are extremely excited to be the home team in Richmond and know we will have lots of support with family and friends planning to attend this event,” said Goodwin. “This is the highest calibre of curling available to all of the club curlers playing at this event – it’s a dream come true.”

The Goodwin team is also participating in this competition to raise funds to support the BC Paraplegic Association. To help the team reach their goals, visit www.bcpara.org, click on the “Dominion Curling Club Championship”, and follow the steps to sponsor a participant. Curling enthusiasts can follow the team’s journey at www.thedominioncurls.ca or by liking “the Dominion Curling Club Championship” on Facebook.
