"This is what we work for all year long," said Hale-Menard. "So it's really exciting."
The qualifier awards two teams in the 13 team field a berth in the Scotties Tournament of Hearts Manitoba Provincial Championships in early 2018.
"The field is very even this week," said Hale-Menard. "We believe we can get top two, for sure."
The foursome will play their first game this afternoon at 2:00 against Rachel Burtnyk.
"We always just have a little meeting before games," said Hale-Menard. "We want to go out there, focus and obviously enjoy the experience."
