A Creston Curling Centre rink is representing the club at the B.C. Travelers Curling Club Championship in Richmond from through Sunday. Skip Scott Peet, third Laddie Pavlis, second Doug Thompson and lead Bryan Smithson are competing after qualifying for the event in the Kootenay Club Challenge.

The Travelers Cup pits B.C.’s best club teams against each other. The winner moves on to play the top team from the international side of the round-robin, which includes teams from Australia, New Zealand, China, Korea, U.S.A. and all of Canada. Those top two teams then battle it out for the Pacific International Cup. The winner of the provincial side of the Travellers Cup also will get the chance to play for the Canadian championship in Ottawa in November.

Pavlis recently found success at the 2015 Canadian Masters Curling Champion-ship in Whitehorse. His team B.C. made it to the semi finals after sporting a 6-3 record before being eliminated and ultimately finishing in fourth place.
