Curling Canada headed to Kelowna, B.C. for ‘important’ announcement – Okanagan

Two years after Kelowna lost its chance to host the Tim Hortons Brier to the pandemic, the potential for another shot for the city get the iconic tournament is on the horizon.

Curling Canada is headed to Kelowna Friday for what they’ve described only as an “important announcement.”

While the announcement doesn’t indicate what would bring officials to the Southern Interior city, it’s reminiscent of 2019 when they announced the Tim Hortons Brier heading to Kelowna for 2021.

The announcement will be made in tandem with some more world-class curling. The 2023 Pan Continental Curling Championships are coming to the Kelowna Curling Club, from Oct. 29 to Nov.  4.

The last time Kelowna hosted the annual competition was 1968, with Alberta’s Ron Northcott taking the title at Memorial Arena.
