Pac Rim Cup & Canadian Gay Championships to Rock the VCC

2012 Pac Rim Cup and CGCC 

The VCC is proud to host the 2012 HSBC Canadian Gay Curling Championship (CGCC) and the always-popular Pac Rim Cup on February 3-5.

The Club will be rocking on and off the ice all weekend long as 16 teams compete for the right to be crowned the national CGCC champion, including the VCC's own Team Thompson, Team Schneider and Team Kipp. Meanwhile, 32 teams will share the ice as they battle for bragging rights for the Pac Rim Cup. In all, nearly 200 curlers will be participating in this year's combined events.

Team Martin at the Masters Men's Playdowns

Team Martin (Gerry Martin, Irwin "Shorty" Sellars, Gord Wight, and Warren Brown) are to be congratulated for representing the VCC this past weekend in Mission at the Masters Men's Playdowns.

The team finished with a 2-2 record, a couple of wins away from qualifying for the provincial championships. Please click here to view Team Martin's results.

Beyond Team Martin, there were a couple of other teams in the Masters Men's Playdowns that featured VCC members: Team Lightbody (who qualified for the provincials) and Team Mukuyama.

VCC Men and Women at Senior Playdowns

The VCC would like to congratulate Team Miller and Team Bain for representing the Club at their respective playdowns this past weekend.

Team Miller (Karen Miller, Shelley Birston, Dianne Petrant, Kathy McInnes, and coach Pat McSherry) were attempting to repeat their success from last year when they qualified for the Senior Women's Provincial Championships and captured the silver medal). Unfortunately, their playdown journey came to an end short of their desired goal. After going 1-1 on day one, Team Miller battled valiantly to come from behind but lost both their games on the Saturday. Please click here to learn more about Team Miller's results.

Team Bain (Croft Bain, Paul Dunkin, Bill Dauphinee and Gary Lubin) also saw their playdown journey end sooner than they wanted after losing three close games on Thursday and Friday at the Senior Men's Provincial Championships. Please click here to see Team Bain's results.

In addition to Team Miller and Team Bain, other teams playing during the Senior Women's and Senior Men's Regions 8-11 playdowns included VCC members. Team Gessner (who qualified for the provincials), Team Hanafin, Team Johnson, Team Shimizu, and Team Steffin had at least one VCC member on their team as they played in the Senior Men's event. Meanwhile, Team Smiley (who qualified for the provincials) was coached by the VCC's junior program coach and lead intermediate clinician, Brad Burton.
