On January 15/16, Vanderhoof Curling Club hosted the BC Provincial Police Curling – North District Zone Playdowns. The North District Zone is comprised of all Police and Peace Officers to the North or 100 Mile House, including the Cariboo Region, North Coast, Central Interior and Peace Region. Each year a new community hosts the Zone Playdowns and this year Vanderhoof got to showcase its community, the business and people that make this area a great place to visit and live. There was incredible support from the business community and the local volunteers making the event a huge success and leaving the visiting members and their families very impressed.

Curling started on Saturday morning and ran through the day ending with a great catered dinner by Kari Neudorf. The dinner was followed by a short AGM meeting and prize presentation. Thanks to our sponsors all members were able to leave with a very nice prize. Curling finished up on Sunday afternoon after the round robin format. The top three teams were decided on to advance to the Provincial Championship being held in Chase, B.C. Feb 18-21.

The retired Prince George members team of Frank Boyle, Ewen Freethy, David Russnell, John Ollinger and Bud Baldwin went through the event undefeated. There was a tie for the other teams with our representatives being Vanderhoof: KP Sidhu, Doug Forsdick, Blaine Gervais and Josh Hanymaayer. Vanderhoof/Fort St James/ Prince Rupert: Darin Underhill, Bob Fredricks, Craig Peterson, JR Lechky and Laura Lechky. All three teams will compete in a round robin format in Chase with the qualifiers to go onto a Page Playoff. The winner from there will move on to the Nationals in Truro, Nova Scotia.
