West Coast Blind Curling Association Provincial Play Downs

Prince George, BC, January 7 – 8, 2017

The 100 Mile House Blind Curling team participated in three action packed games at the 2017 WCBCA provincial blind curling championships this past weekend in Prince George.

The competition started out with a tied game against the Kelowna team who are known as a tough team to beat having held the title of Team Canada for many years. It came down to the 8th end where the 100 Mile House team was down 3 in the scoring. It was Team Skip, Jim Vinson who was able to secure the 3 points needed to tie the game with his last shot.

The second Draw resulted in a win for 100 Mile House ending the first day of competition with a 33 point standing.

Despite another tight game throughout Draw 3 the following day, this strong point standing slipped away in the 7th & 8th ends resulting in a loss for 100 Mile House.

100 Mile House finished with a 39 point standing which put them in 3rd place. This outcome has earned them an opportunity to attend the upcoming 2017 Western Blind Curling Association (WBCA) Championships in Winnipeg March 15 – 18. Both Prince George and 100 Mile House will represent British Columbia at this bonspiel which will include 2 teams each from Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba as well.
Kelowna earned the spot to represent British Columbia at the 2018 National CCB Canadian Visually Impaired Curling Championships (CVICC).
