Curl BC recently announced that the Creston, Prince George and Vancouver curling clubs will host three of the province’s championships in 2014.

The Creston Curling Centre will host the 2014 BC Master (60-plus) Curling Championships from March 6-9, 2014, which will feature the top eight men’s and women’s teams in B.C. The championships will begin with two pools of four, with the top two in each pool advancing to semi-finals.

The Creston Curling Centre was first organized in 1925. In 1926, a two-sheet enclosed natural ice rink was constructed. The season was quite short and during mild spells, draws were canceled. A cement floor and artificial ice were added over the years to improve ice conditions. This attracted more curlers, and in 1950 a new four-sheet artificial ice surface was built as an annex to the hockey arena. The club burned down in 1968. The existing club was built in 1970 with four sheets of ice, and an additional two were added later.

The 2014 Scotties Tournament of Hearts BC Women’s Curling Championship has been awarded to the Prince George Golf and Curling Club, and will run from Jan. 6-12, 2014.

The 2014 Canadian Direct Insurance BC Men’s Curling Championship will be hosted at the Vancouver Curling Club from Feb. 5-9, 2014.
