Right next door, in the Victoria Curling Centre, the party of a lifetime will be heating up in The Original 16 Patch. It kicks off Friday, March 29 with Fan Appreciation Night – an exclusive event for full event pass holders where fans have the opportunity to meet all the athletes. Entertainment for the evening features the Timebenders, Victoria’s favourite party band.

The Patch will be rocking all week long with a lineup of the west coast’s top musical talents, and an appetizing array of food and beverages.

It’s also home to Up Close and Personal interviews where everyone has the chance to take part in a candid conversation with the competitors.

Plus, fans can get involved in a championship of their own. The Cool Shots competition will be underway every day in The Original 16 Patch. Sign up for free and take your shot at cash prizes in the tabletop version of the grand old game.

Team Autograph sessions in the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre provide another opportunity for fans to meet face-to-face with the competitors.

The best part is, everything is included in the price of your same-day event pass to the Ford World Men’s Curling Championship.
