Februay 13, 2013, (ISN) – Duncan, BC (February 12, 2013) – The 2014 Williams Moving and Storage BC Mixed Curling Championship will take place in Duncan, Curl BC has announced.
The event will mark the first time Duncan Curling Club has hosted a provincial championship since 2007.
Brent Dellebuur, one of the directors of the club, said they were looking forward to welcoming curlers from across the province back to their club.
“I have no doubt we’re going to host a successful event. We have done it twice before. As long as you dot the i’s and cross the t’s, then everything will go smoothly,” Brent said.
The club recently sold their building to the Municipality of North Cowichan, which has allowed them to get back on a more solid financial footing.
As part of the sale of the building, the site was renamed the Glen Harper Curling Centre, after local curling legend Glen Harper.
Harper skipped teams to several provincial titles, including the men’s in 1960 and 1963, mixed in 1966 and 1970, and senior men’s in 1980, representing British Columbia at the national championships in each of those years.
Harper was also a founding member of the Duncan Curling Club.
“We are still the Duncan Curling Club, we will always be the Duncan Curling Club, but the building where we curl is now the Glen Harper Curling Centre,” added Brent.
The Glen Harper Curling Centre, on Sherwood Road, is a five-sheet facility with viewing areas and banquet facilities in their upstairs lounge area.
Curl BC CEO Scott Braley said: “We are delighted that Duncan Curling Club will be hosting the 2014 Williams Moving and Storage BC Mixed Curling Championship at the Glen Harper Curling Centre.
“Duncan has a vibrant curling community, and I know they will host a successful event.”
