Another B.C. championship at Lake Cowichan

Yet another provincial curling championship is headed for Cowichan Rocks in Lake Cowichan.

Curl BC announced that Lake Cowichan will be the host for the 2015 Tim Hortons BC Juvenile Curling Championships next March. Sixteen teams of curlers ages 18 and under will compete for boys and girls titles.

It will be the third time Cowichan Rocks has hosted the juvenile championships, having done so previously in 2007 and 2011.

"We like to invite curlers to our community and the kids’ event is a good way to showcase the young talent that is out there," Cowichan Lake Recreation manager Linda Blatchford said. "We hope that when the other youth in our community see the young people at this level, it will inspire them to get more involved."

Despi te having fewer than 100 members, Cowichan Rocks has hosted several high-profile events, including the previous juveni le championships, the 2005 BC Seniors Games, and the International Tankard in 2003 and 2014.
