It is with great anticipation that I look forward to the 26th edition of the Pacific-Asia Curling Championships, which will return to Korea – the 2018 Olympic Winter Games host nation – for the fourth time
In 2010 Uiseong put on an excellent event and it will be a pleasure to return there, for what I’m sure will be another first-class championship.
The teams in our Pacific-Asia zone will be honoured to be a part of this event in Uiseong as they strive to win, not only the medals on offer but, qualification to our 2017 World Women’s Championship in Beijing, China and our 2017 World Men’s Championship in Edmonton, Canada where Olympic Winter Games qualification points will be earned.
I know that for each team playing here will be an unforgettable experience and I know the organisers will do their utmost to put on an outstanding event, whilst also embracing the true ‘Spirit of Curling’ for which our sport is renowned.
I’m sure that everyone in Uiseong is looking forward to welcoming the teams and supporters from our Pacific-Asia zone to the city.
