Ice maker attending world curling championships

Cody Hall will be working with famous ice technician Hans Wuthrich

 

 

 

Comox Valley Curling Centre’s head ice technician, Cody Hall, is in Victoria this week at the Ford World Men’s Curling Championships assisting in the preparation and maintenance of the curling ice.

Hall will be working directly with Hans Wuthrich, a certified national ice technician who is renowned throughout Canada and internationally for his ice making superiority. Wuthrich received the 2003 Canadian Curling Association’s Award of Achievement for his significant contributions in the development of new pebble heads and ice scraper technology.

The experience Hall will gain under Wuthrich’s direction will benefit his credentials needed to get his Level 3 ice technician status. “We are looking forward to hearing about Cody’s experience once the competition is over,” a curling club centre spokesperson said.
