Host site still needed for 2018 Senior Women’s Curling Championship

A host site is still needed for one of Curl BC’s most popular events – the BC Senior Women’s Curling Championship.

At the start of this season neither the senior men’s nor the senior women’s event had a host. But Duncan Curling Club recently stepped forward to host the men’s event, which will be a 10-team round-robin. They were unable to host the women as well because they are a five-sheet facility and could not have accommodated an 18-team event.

Curl BC Competitions and High Performance Manager Shannon Joanisse said: “We are delighted that Duncan is able to host the senior men this year. They did a fantastic job hosting the BC Scotties in 2017 and we know they will do a fantastic job again.

Fierce competition

“But we are still without a venue for the senior women.

“Hosting the BC Senior Women’s Curling Championships is a great way for your club to promote the sport in your wider community.

“There is fierce competition on the ice, but the curlers are also there to socialize and enjoy the company of like-minded people. It makes for a great event.

“If you can host the women, we would be delighted to hear from you.”

The women’s event is scheduled for Feb. 20-25, 2018.

Three or four sheets

Curl BC is reaching out to facilities that may not normally qualify to host this event. That is because while this is usually an event with both men and women, requiring facilities with at least six sheets, this year, we are happy to talk to curling centres with only three or four sheets available.

The women’s event is an 8-team round robin.

Anyone who is interested in hosting should call Shannon at 604-333-3619 or email sjoanisse@curlbc.ca.

Curl BC would like to thank the nine curling facilities that are hosting BC championships in 2018, plus the dozens of curling centres hosting regional and open playdowns.

BC curling centres are also hosting national events: Penticton will host the 2018 Scotties and Cloverdale/Peace Arch will be co-hosting the 2018 Canadian Masters.

And of course many more curling centres are hosting large curling events and bonspiels that add to the rich calendar of events in BC every year.
