U18 Curling gets underway this week

The Coquitlam, Chilliwack and Mission Optimist Clubs are volunteering this week, March 27 to March 31, 2013, at the Optimist International junior curling U18 championships. Coordinated by the Junior International Curling Optimist Club, the tournament is the passion of Al Kersey, known in the PNW District for frequently saying, "“In curling, a child does not need to be bigger, faster or stronger to grow from playground to podium.”

Junior curling clubs from Canada, Japan and the US will compete over a four-day period at the Langley and Cloverdale Curling Clubs.The U18 championships attract some of the best young curlers in the world, and many go on to compete at professional levels. To find out more, please read the press release issued by the coordinators. 2013 Optimist International U18 Curling Championships-Press Release

Governor Larry and Flo Blackburn are in British Columbia to experience the tournament first hand. We'll ask them to share a story on their return.
