The Pinty's Grand Slam of Curling returns this week with the Masters in Lloydminster.
This is the second stop on the season-long series and our fourth event of the season.
Although we didn't qualify for the playoffs in this event we'll use our experience in Lloydminster to improve through the season. We want to thank the great crowds who turned up to support us and all of the curlers this week. This event also is not possible without the support of 200+ volunteers and we thank them for helping out.
Television coverage of this Pinty's event is on both Sportsnet and CBC.
The Masters, an event we have won 3 times in the last five years, is a round robin format with 15 of the top teams in the world placed in three pools with each team guaranteed four games. The top eight teams then advance to the weekend playoffs to crown the 2017 champion.
