West Coast Blind Curling Association Provincial Play Downs
Prince George, BC, January 7 – 8, 2017
The competition started out with a tied game against the Kelowna team who are known as a tough team to beat having held the title of Team Canada for many years. It came down to the 8th end where the 100 Mile House team was down 3 in the scoring. It was Team Skip, Jim Vinson who was able to secure the 3 points needed to tie the game with his last shot.
The second Draw resulted in a win for 100 Mile House ending the first day of competition with a 33 point standing.
Despite another tight game throughout Draw 3 the following day, this strong point standing slipped away in the 7th & 8th ends resulting in a loss for 100 Mile House.
100 Mile House finished with a 39 point standing which put them in 3rd
place. This outcome has earned them an opportunity to attend the upcoming
2017 Western Blind Curling Association (WBCA) Championships in Winnipeg
March 15 – 18. Both Prince George and 100 Mile House will represent
British Columbia at this bonspiel which will include 2 teams each from
