2023 BC Mixed Doubles Championship rolls into Kamloops this week
The 2023 BC Mixed Doubles Championship begins this week at the McArthur Island Curling Club, and the excitement’s already building for this exciting and quickly paced event.
In all, 20 teams will battle it out over 17 draws, with the winners representing British Columbia at the Canadian Mixed Doubles Championship in Sudbury, Ontario next month.
The games will see with co-ed two-person rinks playing 8-end games. Each Team will throw five stones per end—with one team member throwing the first and fifth stones, and the other throwing stones two through four.
Much gratitude is due to the event’s host committee, led by Michael Galesloot, and all their hard work in making this championship a success.
Many thanks also go to chief ice technician/facility manager Andrew McDiarmid and his talented crew, who have prepared a superlative playing surface; chief umpire Ted Anderson and deputy chief umpire Luci Tremblay; and Kathy Arnold, who organized all the live scoring and live streaming volunteers.
And, of course, mounting an event like this would be impossible without the support of The City of Kamloops, the Government of British Columbia, and our partners at viaSport for their ongoing support through the Hosting BC program.
