The Quesnel Curling Club is hoping to host the 2019 Provincial Men’s Curling Championships but to do it they will need the help of the North Cariboo Joint Planning Committee.
To pull it off the Club requires the use of the West Fraser Centre for a 10 day period in February.
It would involve transforming the new arena into a 5-sheet curling venue.
There was general consensus around the table.
CRD Area C Director John Massier says he thinks “it’s a great idea and that the new arena will open up all sorts of great opportunities like this.”
There was some concern about how it would impact other user groups and also over potential lost revenue.
Staff was asked to come back with a report that would include potential grant opportunities to possibly recoup that lost revenue.
