Two Comox Valley Curling Club teams qualify for BC Winter Games

The Richards and the Parkinson rinks, both from the Comox Valley Curling Club, have qualified to represent Vancouver Island at the BC Winter Games, Feb. 20-23 in Fort St. John.

Both teams won in straight games in a best-of-three competition in Lake Cowichan.

Team Richards — which recently competed at the U18 B.C. Curling Championships in Victoria — will be defending their title in Fort St. John, having won gold two years ago at the BC Winter Games in Kamloops.

The team hosts a fundraiser Jan. 30 at the CV Curling Club to help offset travel costs for the remainder of the year. There will be prizes, including tickets and hotel for a Vancouver Canucks/Calgary Flames game, and a six-hour fishing charter.
