Coaldale ready to SWEEP Mar. 31-Apr. 6

Posted on March 18, 2014 by Sunny South News

Curling will be front and centre Mar. 31-Apr. 6, as the 2014 ATB Canadian Masters Curling Championship makes its home in Coaldale. 

“The event is coming up really, really fast now,” joked Roger Hohm, co-chair of the host committee, adding there will be events aplenty to keep curlers and spectators busy during a week of intense curling action.

Hohm noted all the teams have now qualified for the Masters from all the provinces.

“We have a couple of ex-Brier people coming,” he noted, adding ex-Brier curlers are coming from Saskatchewan, British Columbia, the Maritimes and Alberta.

“We’ve got some fairly strong teams coming.”

According to the co-chair, the volunteer situation for the week-long events is favourable but the event could always use additional help.

“If there’s additional people that are out there that are looking for something to do for a week we’d be more than happy to have them come on board,” said Hohm, adding there are close to 100 volunteers thus far.

Schedule of events include a meet and greet at the Gem of the West Museum Mar. 30 from 6-9 p.m., opening ceremonies Mar. 31 at 6 p.m., Cowboy Country Night at 6 p.m. on Apr. 2, a Championship Banquet at 6 p.m. on Apr. 5, Closing Ceremonies at 4 p.m. on Apr. 6 and a volunteer thank you party at 4:30 p.m. on Apr. 6.

Tickets are on sale at the Granite Curling Club or at Coaldale ATB Financial. Tickets are $50 for a week pass or $10 for a day pass. Don’t miss the best curling action in southern Alberta.
