The Executive Committee of the Pacific International Cup is very sad to announce that the final rock has been thrown in our international club curling event.  In 1999 we created a vision of being the premier curling event in the world for the development of the sport at the grass roots level providing BC club champions and international teams with an opportunity to showcase their skills and participate in a unique competition.  From the taking of the “opening shot” in our inaugural event in 2000 until now, we have worked hard to stay true to that vision and to provide our guests, curlers from British Columbia and around the world, with an unparalleled curling event experience.

We would like to thank the Richmond Curling Club, our partner and the permanent host of the Pacific International Cup, for providing an excellent curling facility and a great array of services for our memorable banquet and casino nights.  We thank our many dedicated sponsors whose generous donations enabled the event to ensure our quality of experience goals were achieved.  We thank the City of Richmond, the Richmond Detachment of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and our pipers and anthem singer for our memorable opening and closing ceremonies.  We thank our family of volunteers, virtually all of whom were with us from the first day – your loyalty and hard work year after year made the Pacific International Cup operate seamlessly from opening registration through to the crowning of the Champions.

Most of all we would like to thank our very special guests, the club curlers from British Columbia, the Yukon, the Northwest Territories, the United States, Australia, New Zealand, China, South Korea, Brazil, Mexico, Chinese Taipei, Japan, Singapore and India who were truly the stars of the Pacific International Cup.  You contributed in so many ways demonstrating great curling, superb sportsmanship, unlimited enthusiasm for our sport and your lifelong friendship.  You created so many curling and Pacific International Cup special memories that made the PIC the world class experience it was.

While it was a very difficult decision to reach the conclusion that we could no longer continue to provide the club curlers from around the world the unique curling and social experience that the Pacific International Cup was, we will be forever proud of what we accomplished.  Thank you for being part of the Pacific International Cup!
