The Twin Rivers Curling Club hosted the Junior Slam Classic, sponsored by Northland Power from Dec. 2 to 4.
There were two divisions, Under 18 and Under 15, which were comprised of 19 teams from across the province.
The top two teams in each division were competing for the opportunity to curl at the Meridian Canadian Open Grand Slam of Curling event, prior to the finals in both the men’s and women’s divisions, on Jan 8.
They will have a chance to curl on the Civic Centre ice and receive instruction from a select group of professional curlers that will be competing in the Meridian Canadian Open.
That event is part of the Pinty’s Grand Slam of Curling tour and will take place from Jan. 3 to 8.
In the under 18 division, Dustin Mikush’s rink from the Humboldt Curling Club won the ‘A’ event.
The ‘B’ competition was won by Rylan Kleiter’s foursome from the Sutherland Curling Club in Saskatoon.
In the Under 15 division, the ‘A’ event was won by the Daymond Bernath rink out of the Sutherland in Saskatoon.
The Brennan Stockmanski team from the Shellbrook Curling Club picked up the ‘B’ event honours.
The level of competition in both divisions was exceptional during the weekend.
The organizers thank the players, coaches and spectators for supporting the event, and especially Northland Power for their generous support of junior curling.
The next major event at the Twin Rivers Curling Club will be the men’s northern region qualifiers from Jan. 19 to 22.
Spots at the provincial men’s playdowns, which will be held in Tisdale from Feb. 1 to 5, will be up for grabs at the event.
The winner of the provincials will represent Saskatchewan at the Tim Hortons Brier in St. John’s, N.L. in March.
The Twin Rivers Curling Club will host a Under 18 and Under 15 boys and girls bonspiel, which will be sponsored by Tim Hortons, from Feb. 10 to 12.
