2102 Junior Curling Raffle Tickets Available

The Optimist Clubs of British Columbia in partnership with Curl BC are offering a $5,000 cash prize in a raffle to support youth curling development. In addition to the grand prize, there will be ten $500 prizes. Tickets cost $20 each and are available from your local Optimist Club or your local curling club. Only 1,600 tickets will be sold.

The money raised from the annual raffle funds curling development “cluster camps” throughout the province. At each camp, 15-17 year old juvenile curlers assist a professional trainer in teaching skills to 9-11 year old novice curlers. The 2011 raffle supported cluster camps in Coquitlam, Sparwood, Squamish and Nelson. If all 1,600 tickets are sold, a larger number of cluster camps will be offered in 2012.

The 2012 draw will be held at 9:30 pm on March 26th. The draws will be made during the post-game celebrations at the Coquitlam Curling Club, 640 Poirier Street, Coquitlam, BC.
