Chilliwack Curling Club crew tackles Club Challenge playdown

Aaron Watson’s team hopes a succesful Lower Mainland playdown lands them in provincials this March.

The Chilliwack Curling Club has a team entered in this weekend’s Curl B.C. Lower Mainland Club Challenge bonspiel, running Friday through Sunday at the Richmond Curling Club.

Skip Aaron Watson leads a crew that includes Darren Jarvis (third), Bobby Neid (second) and Robert Hornsby (lead).

They open Friday morning at 10 a.m. versus Richmond’s Wayne Hogaboam.

The locals take on a field that is 14 teams strong, with four qualifying spots for the B.C. Club Challenge Championship up for grabs.

The B.C. Club Challenge will be held March 21-24 at the Abbotsford Curling Club.

The top three teams in that tournament move on to the Pacific International Cup (PIC), which takes place April 17-21 at the Richmond Curling Centre.
