Mixed Canadian Curling Championships Continue in Swan River

The Canadian Mixed Curling Championships kicked off on Saturday at the Swan River Curling Club, and things are going well so far.

"We’ve had great crowds throughout the three days,” said Murray Mullin, Chairperson. “The curling has been spectacular, and I think the curlers and the out of town fans have been treated to a great event so far. The community has really come together.”

The top four teams from both pools move to the Championship bracket, and right now in Pool A, Quebec and the Northwest Territories sit atop with a 4-0 record, while Pool B is led by the 4-0 New Brunswick rink. Manitoba currently sits at 1-3, but are still in contention for a top-four spot heading into today.

“The teams are still battling it out for a top-four spot, for sure,” said Mullin. “Saskatchewan had a really good day yesterday by winning both games, and if they continue to play like they did, I see them going deep in this Championship.

Today will feature three draws as well as tomorrow leading up to the Gold medal match on Saturday morning at 10.

“If you want to watch competitive curling, this is the perfect event,” said Mullin. “It’s top-notch, and if you’re in the area, or even if you have to travel, this is definitely a great place to be.”
