B.C. Mixed Curling Championship will head to Qualicum in March, 2016

The Qualicum and District Curling Club will host the top mixed curlers in the province in 2016 when the AMJ Campbell B.C. Mixed Curling Championship heads to town.

The event will run in March, 2016 and will be an eight-team triple knockout competition with a page playoff.

Eileen Leachman, a board member with the Qualicum club, said, “Having hosted provincial senior ladies, mixed and masters events in recent years, we are excited about having the 2016 AMJ Campbell B.C. Mixed Curling Championship at Qualicum and District Curling Club.”

She said the curlers will have a great time on the Island. “We have great ice, wonderful hospitality, a beautiful beach and great shops and restaurants.”

Mixed curling is played with teams of four, two men and two women, competing in 10-end games. The winning B.C. team will head to the 2016 Canadian Mixed Curling Championships at a location not yet announced.

Sponsor AMJ Campbell has been a large part of the Vancouver Island community for over 20 years.

Denis Cordick, vice president of marketing at AMJ Campbell, said the company is proud to be the title sponsor.

“We look forward to another tremendous event,” he said. “AMJ is the official moving company for Curl B.C., the Canadian Curling Association Season of Champions, the Grand Slam Series and the Canadian Olympic Team.”

The Qualicum and District Curling Club was formed in 1964. The club on Memorial Avenue has four sheets of ice and a comfortable lounge and seating area with a sound system and bar facilities.
