Elkford curlers compete at B.C. Winter Games

Coach recounts “incredible experience”

“It was an incredible experience.”

That’s how Elkford Curling Club coach Bob Rice summed up his team’s time at the 2018 B.C. Winter Games in Kamloops last month.

Levi Rice, Riley Murray, Declan Cook and Kyler Bolton were competing for the first time together at a provincial level when they went up against the best curling teams from seven other zones in BC.

“They all had years of experience curling but this was the first year that we threw them all together as a team,” said Bob.

“There’s heavy competition at the Games but they got a consolation silver and were thrilled to have that.”

With the 2017/18 season coming to an end, the Elkford curlers will enjoy a break until a summer camp in August in Alberta.

“It’s a four-day camp where they will work on all skills, drills and strategy,” said Bob.

“It’s been a good season, I’m proud of all of them.”
