The 2019 SaskTel Tankard is scheduled for February 6th to 10th in Whitewood and the community has rallied together to put on one heck of an event and party.
“It’s something that everyone is talking about, everyone is excited for (and) I know we’re not the biggest centre to be hosting this event but I think it’s going to turn out to be a memorable one that’s for sure,” exclaimed Tankard co-chair Matt Bahm.
Early bird tickets are now on sale for the the curling extravaganza for $60, but only until Thursday, December 20th. Tickets include admission to the games and to the patch entertainment. Fans can get them at the Pharmasave locations in Whitewood, Carlyle, and Broadview, the town ad recreation offices in Whitewood, Borderland Co-op grocery in Rocanville, and the Borderland Co-op office in Moosomin. Fans can also get them online by clicking here.
“We’ve had a great response from volunteers (and) we are looking for a few more to fill in those last number of spots, so if there are any people interested in volunteering we’d be more than happy to have them be part of the event,” noted Bahm. Those interested in helping out can sign up at saskteltankard.com.
The patch will once again be a fun party in 2019! Bahm says they’re bringing in a mechanical bull and will be hosting live music bands including Aces Wyld and Route 605. Rod Pedersen and the 620 CKRM Sportscage program will be broadcasting live on February 6th to help kick off the event.
“It’s under the same roof as the hockey rink where the actual bonspiel will be taking place, so if you’re watching and you need to go have some fun afterwards, don’t bother putting your coat on (because) it’s all under one roof,” Bahm said.
