Thanks to the volunteers, sponsors and fans who made the 25th anniversary of the Pinty's Grand Slam of Curling Westjet Player's Championship another success. The Players' is always an exciting stop on the tour and another great chance to play in front of an Ontario crowd.
We didn't get the result we were looking for in the playoffs but got off to a good start in the event after returning home from Worlds and the Canadian Mixed Doubles.
We went 4-1 through the qualification before losing out in the quarter finals.
Our next event is the Humpty's Champions Cup, the final stop on the Pinty's Grand Slam of Curling.
