Curl BC is pleased to announce that the 2014 Canadian Direct Insurance BC Men’s Curling Championship will be hosted at the Vancouver Curling Club and will run from February 5-9, 2014.
The Championship will follow a 16-team triple knockout with a four-team page playoff format. Similar to the women’s event, the 2013 champion and the men’s leader on the Canadian Team Ranking System as of December 1, 2013 will capture the first two berths. The remaining spots will be declared through regional playdowns. The winner will advance to the Tim Hortons Brier.
The BC Men’s Curling Championship has produced four national championship teams skipped by Frenchy D’Amour (Trail – 1948), Lyall Dagg (Vancouver – 1964), Rick Folk (Kelowna – 1994) and Greg McAulay (Royal City – 2000).

2012 Annual General Meeting
June 6, 2012 at 7pm
Location: The Last Draw Lounge at the VCC (4575 Clancy Loranger Way)
Our annual general meeting is coming up in two weeks and the Board of Directors encourages your presence. The AGM provides VCC members an opportunity to learn all that went on at the Club over the past year, to ask questions and to provide input into future decisions. As a membership-driven organization, your input is critical.
This past week saw some great curling action as the 2012 VCC Championships filled the ice shed from Monday to Thursday evening. After starting with 24 teams, we were left with one champion; congratulations to Team Macdonald from Thursday Open for capturing the 2012 title as Club Champions.
Picture on the right (L to R: Hamish Macdonald, second;, Craig Whitaker, fourth; Chris Allcock, skip; and Reg Siemens, lead), Team Macdonald won the A flight by defeating Team McNichol from the Pacific Rim Curling League in the final. Meanwhile, on the B side, Team Allen / Bos from Sunday Open defeated Team Martin from the Motors league.
Congratulations to all of the teams for an enjoyable week and many exciting games on the ice. You can view the completed draw results by clicking here. Special thanks to Granville Island Brewing for sponsoring the prizes and look for Team Macdonald to be wearing their new Club Champion jackets next season.
