Passing of Ralph Christian

It is with a sad heart that we announce the passing of one of our members. Ralph Christian was a great man who enjoyed the camaraderie of the BCFFCA. He played in 4 Playdowns and was looking forward to many more. I know he made some friends in our Association as well as the Qualicum Curling club where he was a frequent volunteer at their functions.

I would like to pass on condolences to his family and friends. He will be truly missed by all of us at the BCFFCA.
