Team Gibson heading to 2014 BC Scotties

Team Gibson is off to the 2014 BC Scotties in search of the Vancouver Curling Club’s 50th purple heart.
 

Earlier this month in Kelowna, Team Gibson (pictured L to R: third Rebecca Turley, skip Amy Gibson, second Carman Cheng, and lead Michelle Dunn) captured one of two available spots for the BC Scotties. In a strong field of eight teams, Gibson won every game, including a come from behind extra-end win vs Roberta Kuhn (Vernon), as well as stealing three against former BC Champion Marla Mallett to win the A final.

 

The Scotties take place in Prince George from January 6-12. All results will be posted online at http://bcscotties2014.curlbc.ca/ with the semi-finals and finals televised on Sportsnet. The VCC wishes all the best to Team Gibson in their pursuit of a purple heart - we're very proud to have you represent the Club!

Team Schneider tops Marpole field

From Curl BC news (Dec. 2, 2013):

Stephen Schneider heads into the Lower Mainland men’s playdowns this weekend at Royal City with a boost of confidence after winning the Marpole Sportsmen Bonspiel on Dec. 1.

Schneider and his team (featured from L to R: third Shawn Eklund, skip Stephen Schneider, second Brant Amos, lead Dwight Tomalty) won the A final over Mike Moss from Richmond.

The A final was a tight back and forth game. Schneider was one down with hammer coming home and took two points for a 5-4 win when Moss drew heavy on a freeze attempt.

 

Also this past weekend, Team Gibson won the 2013-14 BC Women's Open Event #2 A Pool and will be representing the VCC at the Women's Provincial's this year. Team Forrest from the VCC also made the semi-finals of the A pool. Check out Curl BC for more information on the remaining tour dates.
