It’s in the normal spot: prcl.ca/draw
Please note that there were many “bye” requests this round, and we’ve done our best to accommodate them. It made it a bit challenging to balance the number of Sunday and Monday draws in some divisions, so we appreciate everyone’s understanding.
For more information on the work that goes into creating the draw schedule, please see this blog post from 2012.

When VCC interim GM Ann de la Hey arrived at her office on Nov. 22, a guy wearing a moose hat on the ice caught her eye. “When he delivered, two bear paw prints rose up, (you know where)… it was VCC Board member Gerhard!” Ann exclaimed with delight. “This was my first glimpse of Pink Broom, and the day just took off from there!”
While it rained outside, 64 colourful curlers ‘Rocked the Rainbow’ inside at the sold-out 2014 Pink Broom Bonspiel, hosted by the Pacific Rim Curling League (PRCL).

Are You Ready for Your Close Up?
The PRCL will be taking team photos this Sunday and Monday (Sep 28 and 29) before your game.
Please arrive 30 minutes prior to your game with your full team (including fifths) to have your photo taken.
Bring your smiles, wear your uniforms (if you’ve got one), and show your sense of humor. Each team member will get a copy of your photo, and some of you may even see yourselves on the cover of next year’s season guide . . .
Say My Name
The league provides name tags to all our members. If you don’t have a name tag, please let us know via email at email@example.com
no later than October 1
, and we’ll make sure to order you a new one.
If you have not yet read the September edition of the VCC Backline, the head ice technician, Norm Scott, offers some insight to the changes that have occurred over the summer, including:
- Removable hacks, to help keep the ice cleaner
- ‘Re-textured’ rocks, to help generate more curl
Be sure to introduce yourself to Norm when you see him at the club. He’s a very friendly guy, and always open to constructive feedback on the ice conditions!
We’re also very pleased to welcome Ann de la Hey as the VCC’s new General Manager. Ann was kind to join us at our Registration Party at Numbers, but if you haven’t met her yet do say hello.
The PRCL would like to thank all the VCC Directors for their hard work over the summer, including our PRCL reps David Thill, Gerhard Maynard and Mark Trowell. Past-PRCL president Jason Tusor has also been active getting us leagues setup, so kudos to him as well! Be sure to buy them a beer next time you see them.
