The Aussies are making the long trek back to Richmond.
A men’s and women’s team from Australia highlights the international lineup at the 19th annual Pacific International Cup Wednesday (April 11) through Sunday (April 15) at the Richmond Curling Centre.
They’re being joined by teams from numerous U.S. states including Alaska, Arizona, California, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Minnesota and the Yukon territories as well as a women’s team representing Singapore.
The event, which aims to promote grassroots curling around the globe, also doubles as the Travelers Curling Club Championship British Columbia for teams from around the province. Those clubs qualified through the B.C. Club Challenge that takes place in six regions around the province. From those qualifying teams, one women’s and one men’s team qualifies for the national Travelers Curling Club Championship.
