From Four to Forty – Experience Abounds at the Canadian Direct BC Men’s Curling Championship Presented by Automation One

A broad range of curling experience will be on the ice from February 5-9, 2014 when 16 teams from across British Columbia take on the challenge of determining who will represent the province at the Tim Hortons Brier in Kamloops in March.

The experience of the 84 participating curlers ranges from those with less than four years of curling under their belts (making their first trip to a provincial championship) to seasoned veterans with more than 40 years of curling and multiple trips to provincial, national and world championships.

The field includes past junior, men’s, mixed and senior provincial champions, Olympic gold medallists and those who have represented Canada at world curling championships.

With more than 40 games from the first round to the final, will a familiar name be awarded the gold? Or will we see a “Cinderella team” sweep its way to the final? The only way to find out is to come, cheer and be part of the action. Tickets start as low as $5 for one draw and $35 for the entire event, and are available online or at the VCC.
