The Scotties are returning to Surrey in 2013! Surrey’s Cloverdale Curling Club will be hosting the 2013 version From January the 14th to the 20th. This is the second time in the last three years in which the Cloverdale Club has hosted, and if this is anything like the last one, it should be great! A number of the best ladies teams throughout BC have already qualified, including last year’s Provincial runner up Marla Mallet – playing out of the Cloverdale Club – and three time BC Champion, Canadian and world champion Kelly Scott. Scott is back to defend the title she won last year at the North Shore Winter Club. Team Scott will have essentially the same team she has won back-to-back BC titles with the exception of their new lead Sarah Wazney. Any way you look at it, the field will be excellent and the curling is expected to be first class.
Shaw TV will be televising both the semi-finals on Saturday the 19th and the Sunday final on the 20th live throughout BC. Tickets are available at the Club for $40.00 for a full event pass or $5.00 at the door for a single draw daily.
The Cloverdale Club has six full sheets for curling with what many curlers call the best ice in BC. The club will have a full bar open during the event as well as full food service available downstairs at ice level. Great viewing for the curling is guaranteed, with ice level seating in the special bleachers set up for the event. Bring your jacket! Daily 50/50 draws and a super Silent Auction with excellent items up for bid will be present throughout the championship. Fans will also be able to walk right across the parking lot to the Fraser Downs Racetrack and Casino and for the shopper and walker, beautiful historic downtown Cloverdale – holiday lights and all – is but a five minute walk from the Club. Plan on being there when BC crowns the Scotties 2013 Ladies Champions right here in Cloverdale, Surrey BC!
