Richmond, Kamloops teams representing BC at 2018 Travelers Club Championship

Club teams from curling facilities across the country will be representing their province/territory at the 2018 Travelers Curling Club Championship at Miramichi Curling Club in New Brunswick starting on Monday.

BC is represented in the women’s event by Lori Olsen’s McArthur Island Curling Club team of Kelsey Martin, Lisa Robitaille and Andrea Bourassa. Vic Shimizu’s Richmond Curling Club team of Cody Tanaka, Trevor Bakken and Mark Yodogawa is representing BC in the men’s event.

The championship involves 14 men’s and 14 women’s teams. Both the men’s and the women’s events feature two seven-team round-robin pools, with the top three teams in each pool after round-robin play progressing to the playoffs. The first-place teams will progress directly to the semifinals and the second- and third-place teams will compete in the quarterfinals for an opportunity to play for a medal.
