Brier rookies represent B.C.
The Andrew Bilesky team from the Royal City Curling Club got hot at the right time in the British Columbia provincial playdowns to secure the west coast berth in the 2013 Tim Hortons Brier – the Canadian Men’s Curling Championship – March 2-10 in Edmonton.
Bilesky put together a four-game winning streak, including a 7-4 win over fellow club member Brent Pierce in the Feb. 10 final at the Parksville Curling Club.
The young New Westminster team, including third Steve Kopf, second Derek Errington and lead Aaron Watson, will be making its debut appearance at the Brier.
Bilesky will have the opportunity to avenge a loss to Alberta’s Kevin Martin in the hard-fought final of the 2012 Westcoast Curling Classic, held last October at his home club.
