Ann, Shirley, Ryan, Norm, and the VCC Board
League play is coming to a close, and the ice shed is bustling in anticipation over which teams will represent their respective leagues in the 2015 VCC Championships.
This long-standing tradition at the Vancouver Curling Club gives a representing team an opportunity to bring honour to their league by emerging as the Club Champions. This four-day bonspiel runs from Monday, April 13th to Thursday, April 16th, 2015, and exhibits draws at 6:30pm and 9pm each day except for Thursday, which has one draw featuring the A and B final events at 7pm.
The Club encourages all members and their family to come out and support these teams as they curl toward the 2015 Club Championship. The lounge will be open from 5:30pm daily with food and drink features.
This event is unique as it pairs "unlikely" teams against each other. On Monday the 13th at 6:30pm one of the draws will feature the Blind and Visually Impaired Team "Camozzi", a very successful team in the Canadian Blind Curling circuit, up against a team from the Junior Development League.
We look forward to a great week of curling and hope to see you there!
