And thus begins the last pro curling event of the season.
That makes me sad.
Anyways, it's the Grand Slam of Curling Player's Championship from Dawson Creek, BC, on from April 13-18th. This event has both a women's and men's competition, so there's lot's going on! Check out the event schedule, women's team list and men's team list.
Yep. Quite the list of top teams. It should be an interesting competition for sure!
CBC will be streaming games online, and then will show the finals on tv on the weekend (Women's on Saturday, Men's on Sunday). Check out the CBC broadcast schedule for times/teams. I wonder if they will archive the games?
I don't even know who to pick to win, so I'll be watching the Edmonton teams:
Sweeting (the young ladies team who made it to this season's Scotties)
Nedohin (Dave Nedohin's wife, wouldn't it be cool to see them play side by side?)
King (redeeming former glory?)
Koe (can they keep up the momentum from the Worlds?)
Martin (can they keep up the momentum from the Olympics?)
Ferbey (last game together as the Ferbey Four!)
Appelman (will they ever come out of the shadow of the Big 3?)
I'll also keep an eye on the Calgary teams:
Bernard (can they keep up the momentum from the Olympics?)
Kleibrink (crumbled after losing the trials and the AB provincials, and what's Nixon up to after the twitter snafu?)
Webster (another younger team to watch)
Gosh, Alberta's got a lot of great teams! Here's hoping one of them will win it!
