The last rocks of the year have been thrown when it comes to curling in Saskatchewan.
It was a big year for the province this past winter, having hosted a Grand Slam of Curling and a Brier and it will be a big year next year with the Canada Cup of Curling coming to Estevan, the Canadian juniors coming to Prince Albert and Grand Slam events stopping in North Battleford and Saskatoon
CurlSask executive director Ashley Howard said the love of the game in Saskatchewan is why these events keep heading to our province.
“We’re very fortunate to have such passionate people to put on the events,” Howard said.
“And also such passionate people to attend and be fans, which make these events successful too, kind of a perfect world for these large events to be here in Saskatchewan,” Howard added.
Howard said Curling Canada has a lot of variables that are used when it comes to what venues will host events. She says attendance and ticket revenue are big and that Saskatchewan always come through which bodes well for the future.
