The annual VCC Championship ran April 14-16 with 32 teams taking part, representing nearly every league in the club. The championship started in 1994 as a way to have teams from every league play in a club event together.Visit the VCC Championship webpage for pictures of event finalists and the championship draw results.

The Clancy Grandy team (Kayla MacMillan, Lindsay Dubue and Sarah Loken) that practices at VCC continues to qualify for Grand Slam of Curling events. The BC Scotties champions were 3-2 at the Princess Auto Players' Championship in Toronto, April 11-16, losing a tie breaker to Switzerland's Silvana Tirinzoni, the reigning world champion. They posted a shocking 13-0 victory over Scotties champ Kerri Einarson, along with defeating Sweden's Anna Hasselborg and Jennifer Jones. They are also in the field for the final Grand Slam event, the Kioti Tractor Champions Cup, May 2-7 in Regina. Olympic gold medalist Niklas Edin has been showing up at VCC recently, coaching team members, as he did at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts.

Legendary Brier curler Ron Braunstein is retiring

thumbnail image001

Ron Braunstein (left) with Motors League teammates Joel Bronstein, Robin Wong and Steve Zolnay

Longtime Motors League member and 1965 Brier champion Ron Braunstein is retiring from active league curling. Ron was second on the Manitoba team that won the 1965 Brier with his brother Terry skipping, Don Duguid at third and Ray Turnball at lead. Ron was a medical student at the time, and unable to join the team at the world championship, where American Bud Sommerville claimed an upset win over the Canadians in the final.

The Braunstein legend started in 1958 when teenagers Terry, Ron, Ray and John Van Hellemond shocked the curling world by winning the Manitoba title, and losing the tie-breaking Brier final to Alberta's Matt Baldwin after the two teams were tied with 8-2 records in the round robin. Having teenagers competing at the Brier was controversial, and resulted in a ban on teens participating that lasted nearly 60 years.

Ron and his Motors League team won the A event in the league playoffs this season and last season.


Ron in 2019, wearing his Manitoba team sweater with two Brier crests

In December of 2019, the Motors League had a jersey day, and Ron showed up wearing his Manitoba team sweater from the Brier. VCC posted pictures of Ron on Facebook that ended up becoming our most widely shared post ever.

Ron generously donated money to pay for the recent acquisition of our little rocks, and has been using them to teach curling to his grandchildren. 


Jack Dunlop got OK Tire as a curling sponsor first

thumbnail Jack Dunlop 6178

Jack Dunlop was ahead of his time getting OK Tire as a curling sponsor.

In 2012, the late Jack Dunlop, a member of VCC's daytime senior men's league, used his contacts within OK Tire to have them sponsor a Pacific Coast Masters Curling Association bonspiel at VCC, first held in February 2013. With the company having no prior involvement with curling, Jack had to use his many business skills to get OK Tire management to "cough up" $5,000 to cover VCC ice costs, an awards banquet and an OK Tire Cup (still to be found in VCC's trophy cabinet). The PCMCA event ran for three years, until the money was gone after the 2015 event. We did knock on their door again, but at that time curling was not considered by them as a marketing opportunity.
How things change in only a few years! Now, as well as sponsoring provincial and national curling events, OK Tire is a very visible sponsor at the world championship, with the OK Tire logo emblazoned on every curler's shirt and at the centre of the curling rings. VCC was the location for OK Tire's first foray into sponsoring curling events, and perhaps, we were a catalyst for their current, more expansive role in curling. 
The OK Tire Cup has been renamed the Jack Dunlop Trophy and is now used by VSMCL for its annual sportsmanship award. This year it was won by long-time league member Jon Collins.

VCC volunteers participate in the International Tankard

Longtime VCC volunteers Keltie Worrall and Ron McKay were rewarded for their years of service with a trip to the International Tankard held March 24-26 in Chilliwack. Keltie is a long-time Point Grey League representative and VCC finance committee member, and Ron is a past president and honourary life member. It was the return of the International Tankard after three years off due to Covid, and the BC side won over their American counterparts.

The International Tankard is a legacy event that started in 1962 as an unwritten agreement between the Pacific Coast Curling Association, a forerunner to Curl BC, and the Washington State Curling Association, now the Pacific Northwest Curling Association. It honours curling club volunteers by having their clubs send them to the event and pay expenses.

The International Tankard’s initial format had six teams from each association meet in a friendly competition with Canadian teams playing only American teams. Each team still plays three games, but there are now eight teams for each country. The games are eight ends, including a break at the end of the fourth with a broom stack and teams enjoying a libation together.

The rotation of the event is two years in BC and one year at the Seattle Granite Club. VCC will be hosting the event in April of 2026.

Keltie and Ron were placed onto their respective teams under the tutelage of Jim and Hilda Gordon from the Abbotsford Curling Club. The Gordons added their own contribution to the 2023 International Tankard by putting on display their collection of curling memorabilia, chinaware, books, and pins. The most interesting memorabilia from our club's perspective was the program from the 13th annual VCC men's bonspiel in 1953.

The Norwesters’ Curling league is looking for new curlers for the 2023/24 season. The league consists of curlers aged 55 or over, and is open to both men and women.

Our curling year is made up of four quarters. At the beginning of each quarter the makeup of the teams is changed. This provides a chance to curl with with different members throughout the curling season.

Our club plays each Tuesday and Thursday mornings at the Vancouver Curling Club from 9:45 am to 12:00 pm. Curling usually commences near the end of September and ends about the middle of March each year.

Spring League surprisingly popular

Apparently more members than we realized want to keep curling after their league ends for the season. We set up an eight-team Spring League to run for six sessions on Tuesday and Thursday evenings in April, and it sold out in three days. The only advertising we did was in the washrooms and a Facebook post. Plans are in the works for a bigger Spring League in April next year.

Motors League introduces new swag with new logo and lengthy history

Motors Swag

The latest Motors League cap and shirt includes the new Van Curl logo.

The "four-buildings strong" on the arm pays tribute to the league's lengthy history.

The Motors League on Tuesdays at 4:30 pm is the oldest league in the club, and it's now the first one to come out with league clothing incorporating the new VCC logo. The league started out in the Pile, the original curling building in Vancouver from 1912 to 1930 that also included a hockey rink on another level. League rep Jerry McKenzie reports there isn't a record of the exact year the Motors League started at the Pile. It was located at Denman and Georgia, across from Stanley Park and the totem poles. The original VCC logo, which was recently laid to rest, incorporated a totem pole because of that view from the Pile.

Curling in Vancouver moved to the Forum in 1931, a building that still exists on the PNE grounds. Hockey and curling shared the same ice surface. There were plans to build a curling rink on Heather Street at 18th Avenue, but they were abandoned when World War II came along. Coincidentally, the Marpole Curling Club, erected in the late 1950's, is on Heather Street south of Southwest Marine Drive.

 Sod Turning

 Sod turning for the rink at Heather and 18th Ave. that was never built.

The Vancouver Curling Club got its first dedicated curling rink in 1949, at the corner of Dinmont and Midlothian, just down the street from our current location in the Hillcrest Centre. It was a five-sheet rink with a sand floor, built on what was previously a marshy area. Moisture underneath the sand floor would freeze, expand and eventually cause the ice to heave. Membership services coordinator Richard Brower managed the Dinmont location from 1993 to 1999. He still has the occasional bad dream about installing ice on that sand floor. An artificial playing field is there now.


Garth found a way to curl in Spain

20230209 111236

VCC curler Garth Phillips in his Madrid curling sweater.

As an avid curler far away from a curling rink, Garth Phillips brought the first league curling to Spain at the Club Boadilla in Madrid in 1985. Originally from Alberta, Garth lived in Spain for 20 years, managing the oil operations of Halliburton Services for the Mediterranean region.  Today, he skips a team in the Norwesters League at VCC on Tuesday and Thursday mornings.

Arena curling ice requires dedication. They had one sheet on an ice rink, cleaned by Zamboni, with club members preparing the ice before curling and stones being taken in and out of storage for every game.

The pebble can and stones came via Scotland. While the stones weren’t exactly smuggled into Spain, with some creative thinking they did arrive duty free as dead weight for oil industry land drilling operations.  

The Madrid Curling Club evolved into a mix of Spaniards and ex-pats, with staff from the Swedish, Norwegian and Swiss embassies actively involved. Garth and the MCC participated in the Aviemore International bonspiels in Scotland, bringing Spain its first international recognition with a silver medal.  

Today, Spain is an up-and-coming nation for curling with four clubs, and in 2023 the Spanish men’s team qualified into the A division of the European Curling Championship.

The VCC team did its part in helping Canada win the Strathcona Cup over Scotland with a 9-3 win on Jan. 13 at Royal City CC. The VCC team of Jeff Guignard, Scott Robertson, Al Moore, Keith Switzer and Richard Brower took on a Scottish team that included Sandy Nelson, a former Scottish senior men's champion, and Tom Pendreigh, a 2000 Scottish men's champion at back end. There were four matches at Royal City that day, with a North Shore masters team of Paul Dunkin, Mike Howey, Dickson and Mark Bailey also winning their game handily. Paul is a former VCC curler and the other three are current VCC members.

Fifteen Scottish men's teams toured Canada in the Strathcona Cup, with five teams each making western, central and eastern tours. There were 350 games played at 85 curling rinks across Canada with 1400 Canadian curlers taking part. Canada won with 2454 total points to the Scots' 2317. It is the first time since the 1980s that the host country has won the Strathcona Cup. Groups of Scottish and Canadian curlers alternate touring the other's country every four or five years in the Strathcona Cup.

All three Scottish tours wrapped up on Feb. 2 at the Ottawa Hunt and Golf Club. VCC curlers Don Giles and Ken Grahame were in Ottawa for the closing festivities. Don was a group courier for the Scots while they were in BC. Ken was part of the 1998 Strathcona Cup.

New hack protector being tried out

Hack Protector

A new type of hack protector could be coming to VCC.

Try out the new prototype hack protector!
We're looking at getting a full order of these for the start of next season. It's a new configuration, but the principal function is the same, just point the arrow towards the house, and sandwich the back of the protector between the hacks.
The protector itself is floating around the back boards in the ice shed, so if it's available to try then please do! We're looking for any feedback you have before we finalize the order in the off season.
