Yamada heard of these guys
Brent Yamada’s Kamloops rink took the long way round, but it did manage to book a spot at the Canadian Direct Insurance B.C. Men’s Curling Championship, which runs from Feb. 5 to Feb. 10 in Parksville.
The winner of the provincial championship will represent B.C. at the Tim Hortons Brier in Edmonton in March.
Yamada failed to qualify for provincials at a zone competition in Kelowna in December, but was one of three qualifiers at an open competition in Maple Ridge on Sunday, Jan. 6.
The Yamada quartet is comprised of skip Brent, third Corey Sauer, second Doug Murdoch and lead Lance Yamada.
The Kamloops Curling Club rink qualified for the 2011 provincials in Vernon, where a 4-4 round-robin record was good enough to reach the playoffs.
Team Yamada lost its first draw and finished fourth.
