Bob Ursel’s Kelowna rink, minus the Provincial Seniors Champion skip, is back to defend the 2015 crown at the Doug Bothamley Memorial Cashspiel this weekend at the Nelson Curling Club.

The Ursel rink is one of many top provincial foursomes looking for a cash payout at the annual Heritage City cashspiel.

Organizers have 18 confirmed rinks for the three-day event, the largest field ever.

Rinks are represented from the Okanagan, East Kootenay as well as Nelson, Trail and Castlegar in the West Kootenay.

The rinks include many from the BC Men’s Curling Championship held last February in Nelson.

Along with the Ursel rink are Chris Ducharme of Creston and Mark Longworth of Vernon — both rinks were at the BC Men’s tournament — Myron Nichol of Castlegar, who lost of Ursel in the 2015 final.

The Bonspiel is being held at the Nelson Curling Rink and is free for spectators, so come down and watch some competitive curling.  First draw is at 7 pm Friday night.
