The 25th Barry Naimark Charity Skins Bonspiel will be held Mar. 8-10. Registration for the event is now open and the cost is $360 per team.
The bonspiel is supporting Camp Choice BC in raising funds over the next two years. Camp Choice BC’s purpose is to empower youth to create positive change in themselves and their communities by realizing the power of choice, responsibility and their effectiveness as positive leaders. Camp Choice BC gives 40-60 youth the opportunity to be kids for a week in a safe community of caring, loving adults. At-risk youth attend the camp and come from various communities and schools across British Columbia. Camp Choice BC works closely with various organizations and institutions to identify youth who would most benefit from the camp, and support them when they go back into their communities.


There will be 50/50 draws, a raffle and a silent auction and dinner on Saturday night.
