All this week we’ll be competing at the Ontario Scotties Tournament of Hearts.

We’ve had a very good start to our 2015-2016 season but this week in Brampton all of the points and winnings are reset. It’s a long week with a ten team round robin and ten end games.  Our focus is not on the season we’ve had but on drawing from those earlier experiences to have the best week we can at the provincial championship. 

We've advanced to the championship final of the event. We finished the round robin with an 8-1 record and won the 1 vs. 2 playoff game 9-5 over Team Harrison.  That final is set for Sunday, January 24th at 2 p.m. ET against Team Hanna

Forced the extra end with this runback double. Stole the extra to go to 5-0. #2016ostoh #curling

Rogers TV will have coverage of select draws during the round robin.  Broadcast times will vary depending on where you live in Ontario.  Check your local Rogers TV listings but for those in Ottawa you can find the broadcast times here. 

Sportsnet will have national coverage of Sunday’s final at 2 p.m. ET.

Full details on the event, including how you can get tickets, can be found here.  The winner of this event will move on to represent Ontario at the 2016 Scotties Tournament of Hearts in Grande Prairie, Alberta in February. 

Finally a big kudos to our North American teammates who pulled out the win on Sunday night in Las Vegas at the Continental Cup.  We obviously couldn’t be there as we started our trip back to Ontario on Sunday afternoon.  It was such a great event with incredible fan support. 

Thanks to the volunteers and sponsors who made Vegas another smash success.  A special thanks to TSN for their coverage.
