Starting at the high school level, the KSS team of Jackson Marshall, Duncan Gallop, Ben Meldrum and Tyler Wiersma, are in Creston, B.C. for the B.C. high school junior provincial championships this weekend.

Also this week is the B.C. senior curling championships in Port Alberni. The Noble rink out of Qualicum Beach (Lynn Noble, Donna Langlands, Crystal Murray, Shirley Wong), went unbeaten on day one, winning 7-6 in their first match over the Freeman rink (Quesnel) and 5-2 over the Roemer rink (Royal City).

The B.C. masters championships take place March 3-8 and will feature the Feltham rink, with Bruce Feltham, Rob Findlay, Gary Stephens, Gary Nolan and Cliff Gussie in action in Nanaimo.
