After dominating the West-North U15 men's qualifiers this past weekend, Swan River's Karter Meyn and his team are heading to the Manitoba Winter Games.

"It means a lot," said Meyn.  "I've always really wanted to compete at the Manitoba Games."

The foursome from Swan River had no troubles earning their spot at the games, as they beat Team Gawryluik twice, 8-1 and 13-6.

"This past weekend showed we're a pretty good team, and we can hold our own," said Meyn.  "We should be able to compete with the other teams at the games."

The U15 men's curling tournament gets underway on March 7 at the Burntwood Curling Club.

"I think this year we're going more for the experience because we've never been at an event like this," said Meyn. "My expectations are to finish in the top half, and if we can get to the podium, we would be really happy."

Meyn also notes he's looking forward to meeting new people at the event.

The Manitoba Winter Games kick off with Phase One, on March 4, in Thompson.
