Curlers to converge on club

It has been six years since the Traveller’s Curling Club Championship

It has been six years since the Traveller’s Curling Club Championship (formerly known as the Dominion Championship) was held in Port Hardy.

Fort Rupert Curling Club President, Doug McCorquodale, is confident that this year’s event will be as good as any, with top curlers on the North Island looking to strut their stuff.

The teams competing are apart of the Island North Region which consists of teams from Parksville, Quesnel, Campbell River, Port McNeill and Port Hardy.

“This one is a little more serious. This is the club champions from each of those clubs from the  island north region.

“It’s not quite the festive atmosphere of a bonspiel,” McCorquodale said.

The event is being held at the Fort Rupert Curling Club in Storey’s Beach on March 28 to March 30. The event’s winners will moves on to the provincial championships in Richmond, B.C. on April 15 to April 19.

“It’s a great facility (Fort Rupert Curling Club) and this is kind of a year-end event for us. It is well worth the time (to come spectate) if you are interested,” said McCorquodale.
