The Curling Commission AGM will take place on Saturday at 2 pm in the lounge of the club; each region needs to be represented by someone (can be a coach, sponsor or parent). The meeting usually lasts about 45-60 minutes.
Teams will have the afternoon free until the banquet (unless there are tie-breakers).
Banquet: Saturday March 3 at 6:30 pm in the lounge at the club (upstairs). Nice clothing please (no jeans); consider it a “fancy occasion”!
Pins: it’s traditional to trade pins before the start of each game, so make sure you have a good supply of pins from your community!
Posters: teams are asked to create a poster about their team, school and/or community. It’s a great way to get to know your opponents and there will be a prize for best poster!
Tshirt orders: this information will be coming in a separate email, very shortly.
Meals: there is a good concession at Royal City and they serve meals! We are also working on having one lunch provided for athletes and coaches, probably on Friday; more information coming on this.

The BC High School Provincial Curling Championships rotate between regions every year. They are usually held in the first or second week in March. One team of boys and one team of girls from each region participate in the championships. All students must be from the same school or feeder school (see BC School Sports rules). Play is conducted using Canadian Curling Association rules.
The Championship is in form of a round robin; teams play seven games of eight ends each. There are no playoffs; however, in the event of a tie, there will be a tie-breaking game held to decide first or second place. To decide third and fourth, there will be a throw to the button by each player on the team, with total inches from button added up. This will take place after the last draw on Saturday, if necessary.
First and second place teams receive a trophy; third place teams will receive a "3rd place" patch. All players receive a "regional winner" patch. These are given out at the banquet, held on Saturday night. The prestigious Most Sportsmanlike award is also announced at this time. Each team votes for the team they felt was most sportsmanlike.
