Curling club to host junior championships

The Tim Hortons BC Junior Curling Championships are coming to the Chilliwack Curling Club in December.

Chilliwack Curling Club has been selected as the host site for the 2014 Tim Hortons BC Junior Curling Championships.

The championship, which will take place Dec. 26-31, 2013, is for junior men and women curlers ages 21 and under.

It will be the first Curl BC event to be televised on Sportsnet.

Chilliwack has previously hosted the 2006 BC Men’s provincial curling championship and the 2010 BC Mixed provincial curling championship, as well as the 2007 Continental Cup, an international curling competition that pitted curlers from North America against curlers from the rest of the world.

They also hosted the 2010 BC High School Provincials.

Wendi Prinse, the secretary of Chilliwack Curling Club, said she is excited.

It’s a great opportunity for our sport, our club and the City of Chilliwack,” she said. “Our club has had teams competing at provincials for the last few years and they’ve had a lot of great experiences. So it’s time to give back.”

With a busy in-house junior curling program, Chilliwack may be able to have at least one home team competing.

I sure hope we can send both a men’s and women’s team,” Prinse said.

Chilliwack Curling Club is a six-sheet facility with a lounge, eating area, lockers and office space. The club has approximately 650 active members curling regularly in leagues and approximately 1,500 shareholders.
