The top eight master men’s and women’s teams in B.C. will battle for the titles and berths into the Canadian Master Curling Championships in St-Lambert, Que., which takes place March 25 to 31. The B.C. Championships will begin with two pools of four, with the top two in each pool advancing to the semifinals.

The B.C. Master Curling Championships have produced two national master championship teams skipped by Rick Pughe from Royal City in 2008 and Garry Gelowitz from Kelowna in 2011. Richmond’s Karin Host team has recently won two national silver medals in the 2009/10 and 2010/11 seasons.

The Grand Forks Curling Club is a four-sheet facility and hosted the 2010 B.C. Master Curling Championships, as well as the 2008 B.C. Senior Men’s Curling Championship.
