      THE EVENT

      We are hosting the Abbotsford Curling Classic Cashspiel as part of the World Curling Tour (WCT)
      November 24 – 26, 2017.  Sixteen men’s and 16 women’s teams will be competing for $35,000 in cash prizes. The event is being sponsored by Driving Force Decks Int’l.

      On the men’s side, Dean Joanisse will be a local favourite. He has represented BC twice at the Brier and was runner-up to John Morris’s team in last year’s BC Provincial Finals. Other notable local teams include Sean Geall and Jeff Guignard who have won WCT events earlier this year. Tyler Tardi is the reigning Canadian Junior Champion.

      Also participating are strong teams from out of country. Soohyuk Kim from Korea has won four WCT events since 2014, the latest being in Japan earlier this year. Yusuke Morozumi will be skipping Japan’s National Team at the 2018 Winter Olympics.

      On the ladies’ side, BC’s 2016 Scotties Tournament of Hearts winner, Karla Thompson, will be a local favourite. Chelsea Duncan, who was on the winning team in the 2017 Yukon Scotties Tournament of Hearts, will be here. So too will Satsuki Fujisawa – she has won five Japanese National Championships, a WCT event earlier this year, and will be representing her country in the 2018 Winter Olympics. Victoria Moiseeva, who represented Russia in the 2016 European Championships and won a WCT event earlier this year (Iliana Vasilyeva skipping), will also be competing. Sarah Wark and Dailene Pewarchuk have also won WCT events this year.

      The café will be open to provide food and drinks all day Friday, Saturday and Sunday. There will be a Dance on Saturday night

      On Sunday, we are hosting a GREY CUP PARTY in the lounge simultaneously with the event finals. There will be free food compliments of our CHILI AND WINGS COOK-OFF CONTEST. So, plan on coming down and cheering on your favourite curlers AND football team!
