Playdown payoff at Chilliwack Curling Club

The Chilliwack Curling Club hosts ladies regional playdowns this weekend, with two days of action.

The Chilliwack Curling Club hosts ladies regional playdowns Saturday and Sunday. Draw times are 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. on day one and 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. on day two.

This is the last chance to qualify for the B.C. Ladies Curling Championship, a stop on the road towards the Scott tournament of Hearts in February.  The field has five very good teams, including local curler Lisa Deputan. Those five teams are competing for two provincial berths.

CCC has a junior girl’s team traveling to Victoria between Dec. 27-30 for the B.C. Junior Women’s Championships. Stephanie Prinse is the skip, joined by Ali Renwick (second), Dana Page (third), Amanda Tipper (lead) and Casey Freeman (fifth). The girls knocked off the top ranked team in the province in the B qualifier and can make some serious noise if they’re curling well.

Both events can be followed on playdowns.com.

 

— CCC is still looking for curlers for day, night and junior programs as the second half of the season gets rolling. Contact the club for more info.
