A familiar name has been added to the team steering toward the 2018 B.C. Winter Games.
Maureen McCurdy, an accountant with Daly & Co. and a perennial volunteer through the years with a variety of organizations, was named vice-president of the Games, which take place in the Tournament Capital Feb. 22-25, 2018.
McCurdy has been involved with Kamloops Symphony Society; 2014 Tim Horton’s Brier; 2013 BC Seniors Games; 2011 Western Canada Summer Games, Strauss Canada Cup of Curling; the Kamloops Daily News Boogie the Bridge; 1998 Ford World Curling and the 1993 Canada Summer Games.
A TRU graduate, she is also a partner at Daly & Co. and a recipient of a community service award from the Institute of Chartered Accountants of B.C. in 2014.
“Kamloops has an amazing group of volunteers who represent our community. I look forward to working with them and the B.C. Games Society to create a memorable sporting experience for Kamloops and all of the athletes,” she said.
“Maureen’s extensive multisport experience, positive attitude and leadership is a complement to the team,” added Niki Remesz, Games president.
The city is expected to receive an estimated $1.6 million in economic spinoffs from hosting the Games. This will be the third time that Kamloops has hosted them, the first being the inaugural B.C. Winter Games in 1979, as well as the 2006 B.C. Summer Games.
About 2,000 volunteers will be required to plan and stage the 2018 B.C. Winter Games. For more information please visit www.bcgames.org.
