Abbotsford to host provincial champions

B.C.'s best men's curling teams come to Fraser Valley to qualify for Brier tournament

B.C.’s best men’s curling teams will descend on Abbotsford next week with the 2017 belairdirect BC Men’s Curling Championship, presented by Fountain Tire, set to take place at Abbotsford Curling Club Feb. 8-12.

This tournament will showcase the top 12 men’s teams from across the province — including this past weekend’s national junior championship team from Surrey/Langley — and will decide the BC team that will go on to compete at the 2017 Tim Hortons Brier.

“This tournament brings together B.C.’s best men’s curling teams and will provide some of the most exciting curling this province has seen this year,” Curl BC CEO Scott Braley said. “Curl BC is confident Abbotsford will put on a top-notch tournament for curling fans from across the province.”

Teams from Burnaby/New Westminster, the Kootenays, Victoria and Vancouver Island, Kelowna, Vernon, Vancouver, Richmond and Surrey will compete in this provincial championship tournament.

Hometown curlers will skip two teams in Abbotsford, although representing rinks from outside the Fraser Valley. Visit http://belairdirectmens2017.curlbc.ca/teams/ for a complete team roster.

“The Abbotsford Curling Club is excited to be hosting this prestigious event and to have such talented curlers on our ice,” club manager Kent Bird said. “We’re encouraging the community to come out and support this event that showcases our popular club and sport.”
