Curl BC announced on July 23 that the 2015 Scotties BC Women's Curling Championship, presented by Best Western will be hosted at the Vancouver Curling Club in January 2015.
The recent announcement means the Vancouver Curling Club (VCC) will host three Curl BC provincial championships in a row.
The 2015 competition will showcase the most skilled women curlers in the province for the opportunity to play at the national Scotties Tournament of Hearts, one of Canada's most beloved sporting events.
The VCC, located at the Hillcrest Centre, site of Olympic and Paralympic curling at the Vancouver 2010 Games, celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2012 and hosted the Williams Moving & Storage BC Mixed Curling Championship in 2013. It was previously announced that the VCC will host the Canadian Direct Insurance BC Men's Curling Championship in February 2014.
Hosting the BC Scotties will be another feather to add to the club's cap.
"The Vancouver Curling Club is developing a strong tradition for showcasing provincial championships," says Willa Thorpe, VCC Executive Director. "With three provincial competitions in our new home at Hillcrest Centre, we're building our reputation as a club with the facilities and expertise to host top-notch competitions."
"Our club members are gaining valuable high performance hosting experience and will be ready to welcome the best women curlers from across the province in 2015," says Mark Robinson, Vancouver Curling Club President.
The club hopes to attract thousands of spectators to watch the province's best women curlers, among them six-time BC champion Kelly Scott and her rink.
|While the calendar officially became summer last month, the Club's staff and Board of Directors are already looking ahead to next season.
If you are interested in learning more about all of the events planned for the 2013-2014 season at the VCC, please visit our events listings.
Once you visit the events page, you will find a full schedule from September 2013 to June 2014, with many of the events hyperlinked so you can find complete details.
Planning for our major bonspiels will take place over the summer so we will turn on the event registration functionality later this summer once everything is finalized; then so you can ensure you sign up early and don't miss out on any of our 'spiels before they sell out. In the meantime, take a look at the clinics and open houses we have planned to open the season in September (and you can even register today for any of this coming season's clinics).
Enjoy the expected summer sunshine, but be sure to mark off your own personal calendar with all of the VCC events that interest you for the 2013-2014 season.
