Dezura going to curling grand slam event

Two teams from B.C. are taking part in the Grand Slam of Curling Canadian Open in Kelowna from Dec. 12 to 16, and a Maple Ridge curler will be part of the action.

The Brent Pierce rink of New Westminster will be competing against 18 of the top men’s curling teams in the world, including Vancouver 2010 Olympic gold medalist Kevin Martin and world champions Jeff Stoughton and Glenn Howard. The event will air on Sportsnet.

Pierce curls at the Royal City Curling Club. His team consists of third Jeff Richard (Kelowna) as well as lead Grant Dezura (Maple Ridge) and second Kevin Recksiedler (Port Moody).

The other B.C. team taking part is Jim Cotter’s rink out of Vernon. Team Pierce is B.C.’s second-highest ranking team based on CTRS points, behind Cotter.
