Chilliwack – The 2019 Everest Canadian Seniors will be played from March 22-28 at the eight-sheet Chilliwack Curling and Community Centre, which is currently in the final stages of construction and scheduled to open in late October or early November.
“It’s truly exciting for our sport when we see new curling centres being built, and having the Everest Canadian Seniors as part of the opening season will make it a truly memorable event in Chilliwack,” said Resby Coutts, Chair of Curling Canada’s Board of Governors. “I know there’s a great group of volunteers in place in Chilliwack who will make sure Canada’s elite senior players are welcomed with open arms.”
“The City of Chilliwack is proud to host the 2019 Everest Canadian Senior Curling Championships,” added Chilliwack Mayor Sharon Gaetz. “We look forward to welcoming many talented senior curlers from across Canada to our new Chilliwack Curling and Community Centre and showing them a little bit of what our wonderful city has to offer.”
“Chilliwack is at the forefront of propelling the sport of curling into the future with their new, state-of-the-art venue,” said Mark Duffey, President and CEO of Everest. “This is Everest’s fifth consecutive year sponsoring the Canadian Senior Curling Championships and we are extremely excited to be a part of the curling community across Canada. We are always looking for new and exciting ways to celebrate curling and the Seniors has always been an integral part of that journey. What better way to continue this tradition than in one of the most visually stunning towns in the country.”
