The team that represented Saskatchewan at the Tim Hortons Brier is doing what many other top rinks in Canada are doing in advance of the next Olympic cycle.
On Wednesday night, the Steve Laycock team consisting of Matt Dunstone, Kirk Muyres and his brother Dallan said they are going to dissolve the team at the end of the current season and look for new opportunities in an attempt to be at the 2022 Olympics.
In a release, the team says the entire team is grateful for all the support they have been given over the past few years from a variety of people ranging from family to sponsors.
Well what an incredible ride we had.
Thank you to our sponsors, friends, fans and families — we are so blessed to have you all on this journey with us!
