One of Nelson’s biggest sporting events is coming to town.
The third annual Doug Bothamley Memorial Open Cash Spiel will take place at the Nelson Curling Centre Friday to Sunday.
The event is named in honour of Doug Bothamley, an avid curler who spent countless hours in the rinks around the Kootenays coaching competitive junior and women’s teams, competing, and volunteering with Curl B.C., as well as promoting the sport province-wide.
This popular cash spiel distributes more than $10,000 in prizes and features all levels of play, from league curlers to provincial level teams, competing in similar skill sets for cash prizes.
The cost is $420 per team, which guarantees five games and includes a steak dinner.
Limited spaces are available for teams or individuals wishing to curl.
Spectators are encouraged to drop by the Nelson Curling Centre to watch some hometown favourites, including Fred Thompson’s defending champion rink.
