This year the Canadian Firefighters Curling Association will be putting on their curling championship in Truro, Nova Scotia.

Summerland’s Rob Robinson is the second for Team British Columbia. The team won the bronze medal last year and will also be competing this year.

The event started on April 9 and will end on April 17. Every province and territory will be sending a team to this competition this year except for Newfoundland.

“Since there are five other teams returning this year, the competition will be difficult so throughout the championship we will have to bring our best game every day to make it to the finals,” said Robinson.

The competition is a round robin format. Every team plays each other. Then the best four teams will play each other in the playoffs.

This championship tournament is also a social experience. Every night two teams will provide dinner for all of the other competitors and their families as well as there being entertainment every night.

The Canadian Firefighters Curling Association will be posting all of the draw scores on their website
