2013 Cowichan Rocks Curling Club events

Eight mens and ladies teams from around B.C. will come to Lake Cowichan to curl for the championship title

The annual men’s curling bonspiel is scheduled for January 17 — 20 at the Lake  Cowichan Recreation Centre. Team entry fee is $220 which includes a weekend of curling, prizes, Saturday night dinner and entertainment. To register, call the arena at 250-749-6742.

The Cowichan Rocks Curling Club Ladies will be hosting their annual curling and games fundraiser on Saturday, Feb. 2. This event is usually well attended, and raises money for a different cause each year. Anyone wishing to sign up for this event should call Tricia Mayea at 250-749-4140.

Cowichan Lake Recreation, in partnership with Cowichan Rocks Curling Club, is very excited to announce that they have been awarded the right to host the 2013 BC Masters Curling Championship event by Curl BC, Feb. 28 – March 3, 2013.

Eight teams of senior ladies and eight teams of senior men qualifying from around the province will come to Lake Cowichan to curl for the championship title. The curling club is in the planning stages for this event, and welcomes any volunteers who wish to assist with the committee work.  Events such as these bring huge community benefit and economic spin off to the area, and the Cowichan Rocks Curling Club has built themselves a reputation in the past for hosting these types of events because of the fantastic job they do.

And finally, March 9 is the date for a new venture: the first Bowling/Curling Spiel. Participants will bowl three games in the Historic Youbou Lanes Bowling Alley, followed by lunch and an afternoon of curling, dinner and prizes. Transportation will be provided and Cowichan Lake recreation manager Linda Blatchford promises fun for all who participate. No experience necessary in either sport, she adds, and the cost for the whole day is only $65.

To register, call Linda at 250-749-6742.
