Chilliwack curlers compete in Pacific International Cup

Kevin and Ken Britz, James Crawford and Darren Jarvis battle BC club champs and an international field in Richmond.

The Chilliwack Curling Club’s Kevin Britz rink takes a run at provincial and international bragging rights at the Pacific International Cup.

The 16th annual event runs Wednesday through Sunday at the Richmond Curling Centre, with Britz competing against club champions from throughout the province.

Britz is joined by Ken Britz (third), James Crawford (second) and Darren Jarvis (lead). They qualified for the PIC by taking the silver medal in the Lower Mainland division of the B.C. Club Challenge. Chilliwack lost 7-5 to Richmond in last Sunday’s final after beating Cloverdale 6-4 in the semi-final.

In addition to club champs, the PIC also includes teams from the Yukon, eight from the United States and visitors from Australia, New Zealand and (for the first time) Brazil.

At stake for Britz  is a chance to represent the province at the 2015 Travelers Canadian Curling Club Championship, taking place in Ottawa this November.

Round Robin games begin Wednesday at 5 p.m.  continuing all day Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

Playoffs are held Sunday morning and afternoon.

Admission is free.

Complete schedules, standings and team rosters are available at picup.ca/home.php
