Last chance to earn berth to 2018 belairdirect BC Men’s Curling Championship

Teams hoping to earn one of the last berths for the 2018 belairdirect BC Men’s Curling Championship have until Christmas Eve to register.

The deadline to register for the second open men’s playdown, taking place at Abbotsford Curling Club, from Jan. 5-7 is Dec. 24. Any men’s team from across BC can enter the playdown.

Spectators are welcome to attend to see some of the best men curlers in BC on their way to the 2018 belairdirect BC Men’s Curling Championship, presented by Berwick Retirement Communities, taking place Jan. 31-Feb. 4 at Parksville Curling Club. Draws for the playdowns at Abbotsford Curling Club will start on Jan. 5 and end on Jan. 7.

If you have a men’s curling team, this is a great opportunity to play against some top teams. And for the first time, up to five berths will be available at this time of year, so there will be plenty of opportunities for success.

Shannon Joanisse, Curl BC’s High Performance and Competitions Manager, says: “Whether this is your first time competing to earn a berth to provincials or you’re a seasoned competitor, this is a great time to think about signing your team up. This could be your year!”

The cost of entering playdowns is about $100 per player, which gives you the chance to play in a BC championship with the best in the province. It also gives you the chance to win prize money, ranging from $800 for first place to $400 for third place.

Curl BC will not charge a competitors’ fee for people entering BC playdowns for the first time, a savings of approximately $40 per curler.

The winner of the Parksville event will represent BC at the 2018 Tim hortons Brier in Regina Mar. 3-11.

If you have any questions about entering playdowns, please contact Shannon Joanisse, Curl BC’s High Performance and Competitions Manager, at 604-333-3619 or sjoanisse@curlbc.ca.
