No stranger to high-profile events, Janet Klebe will try to secure a berth to nationals.

Chilliwack’s Janet Klebe will lead her team into battle at the 2020 Connect Hearing B.C. Masters Curling Championships, taking place Mar. 3-8 at Cowichan Rocks and the Glenn Harper Curling Centre in Duncan.

Klebe’s crew qualified at a Lower Mainland playdown in Port Moody.
