Countdown to the Skins

The final countdown is on to the start of the VCC's premier event of the year - the Barry Naimark Charity Skins Bonspiel - this Thursday. We are looking to host our biggest event ever, and are pleased to have a full draw of 48 teams.

Tune-up Your Curling Game

As the second half of the curling season is in full swing, do you have some parts of your game that could use a tune up? Do you have some mid-season bad habits creeping into your game? We have a couple of solutions to these problems and more.

New Doubles Champions are Crowned

Jan Bos & Noah Grant, 2012 VCC Doubles Champions 

This past weekend saw the largest-ever VCC Doubles Bonspiel take place on February 11.

A full-draw of 32 teams played multiple four-end games, using the unique world doubles format rules, and Jan Bos and Noah Grant (featured on the left) were crowned the 2012 Champions.

The Club's annual fundraising event for the Sandra Schmirler Foundation, the Doubles Bonspiel is a unique format that ensures every participant gets to play a number of games all inside of one day. All of the participants had a thoroughly enjoyable time on and off the ice while raising over $1,000.

Team Schneider are National Champions

Congratulations to the VCC's Team Schneider for capturing the 2012 HSBC Canadian Gay Curling Championship (CGCC) this past weekend. Made up of Stephen Schneider, Shawn Ecklund, Shelly Birston and Glenn Smith, Team Schneider strung together five wins over the three-day event held here at the Vancouver Curling Club to claim the national crown.

VCC teams did themselves proud over the weekend battling against 16 teams, 13 of which came from clubs from across the country. Team Thompson (made up of Aaron Thomson, Brian Oldham, Robbie Gallaugher and Billeh Nickerson) captured the silver medal behind Team Schneider. Meanwhile, Team Kipp finished the weekend tied for 10th place. Complete event results are available by clicking here.
