Your team is only a few wins away from being champions of BC!
But Junior teams and Women’s teams who are hoping to enter playdowns only have a few weeks left to register.
The deadline for the first junior open playdown, taking place at Osoyoos Curling Club Nov. 24-26, is Nov. 13. The deadline for the first women’s open playdown, taking place at Hope Curling Club Dec. 8-10, is Nov. 19.
Shannon Joanisse, Curl BC’s High Performance and Competitions Manager, says: “Whether this is your first time competing to earn a berth to provincials or you’re a seasoned competitor, this is a great time to think about signing your team up. This could be your year!”
The cost of entering playdowns is about $100 per player, which gives you the chance to play in a BC championship with the best in the province. It also gives you the chance to win prize money, ranging from $800 for first place to $400 for third place.
Curl BC will not charge a competitors’ fee for people entering BC playdowns for the first time, a savings of approximately $40 per curler.
The 2018 Boston Pizza BC Junior Curling Championships take place Dec. 18-23 in Langley and the 2018 Scotties BC Women’s Curling Championship, presented by Best Western, takes place Jan. 2-7 at Victoria Curling Club.
If you have any questions about entering playdowns, please contact Shannon Joanisse, Curl BC’s High Performance and Competitions Manager, at 604-333-3619 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
