Curling Club to host senior provincials in Feb. 2015

The province’s best senior curlers will gather at the Alberni Valley Curling Club from Feb. 16–22, 2015.

The province’s best senior curlers will gather at the Alberni Valley Curling Club from Feb. 16–22, 2015 to compete for spots in the national championships.

Sixteen men’s and 16 ladies’ teams will compete in the 2015 Tim Hortons Senior Provincial Curling Championships in Port Alberni. “The people that go in this are high-end curlers,” say Michelle Twanow from the organizing committee.

Winners will earn spots in the Canadian championships March 19-28 at Edmonton’s Thistle Curling Club.

Teams will compete in regional playdowns in late January so organizers won’t know who is coming until early February, Twanow said.

She is hopeful that a Port Alberni team will compete in the playdowns for a spot to represent the city on home ice at the B.C. playdowns.

Port Alberni is no stranger to hosting provincial curling championships, having brought the B.C. ladies’ and junior finals here in the past.

The public is welcome to come and watch the games; admission is by donation. Monday will be a practice day, and games will kick off Tuesday with three draws per day until Friday. Semi-finals and finals will be played on Saturday, Feb. 22.
