Years Curled & Accomplishments Along the Way: Started curling when I was 10 in Dugald MB, gained valuable experience from playing in their junior league winning the aggregate twice and attending multiple curling camps in Morden, MB. Curled in a mixed spiel at the camp with Kaitlyn Lawes. Won U13 MB Provincials with the Joyal rink (played third), won a Bronze medal in the Manitoba Games in 2005/06 with Joyal rink then competed for the Canada Games Trials.

Afterwards created my own team and skipped out of the Pembina Curling Club in Winnipeg with many other great curlers (Neufeld, Lawes, Coleman), competed in bonspiels (cash and provincial berths). Focused on school and fitness after 2010 and recently skipped the Whitewood, SK’s Skins League.

Bio of Myself: I love the sport of curling & enjoy having fun while curling all the while staying competitive, focused and serious about my shots. Playing all the positions I have a very good understanding of the game, strategy and systems as well as knowing roles of the players. I have the ability to judge the speed/curl of the rock very well and take pride in being an excellent sweeper. I can throw the big weight when needed but have really taken to controlling the quiet weight. I’m a P.E. teacher in Broadview, I enjoy hunting/fishing, outdoors, and being physically active. I would say I’m easy to get along with as I have many interests and hobbies.

Other Comments: Willing to commute for spiels and games on the weekend and possibly during the week depending on location.

What are you looking for in a team: Competitive Men’s

Years Curled & Accomplishments Along the Way: I have curled since grade 6, competing in high school jr. & sr. playdowns making it to provincials in Grade 11 and 12 (2007 & 2008 in both Boys and Mixed respectively). Also competed in CURLSASK Juvenile Playdowns making it to provincials in 2007 & 2008, losing the C-final with a mixed team at the 2008 playdowns.

I have curled on the SCT for a couple years, and played in the Saskatoon WCT event once. Took 2 years off due to work (making curling ice full time in Estevan), and in 2017 won the Traveler’s Provincial Championship. Was throwing third and sweeping all other rocks in that competition. Also won the Thursday Open league in 2016/2017 and a close second place finish in the Tuesday Competitive League.

Bio of Myself: Born in Saskatoon July 1990. Grew up in Dalmeny, and started volunteering at the local curling rink making ice at age 15. Volunteered at a few major events (2010 World Women’s & 2012 Brier) on the ice crew, and also helped at the 2014 Sochi Olympics. Plan on expanding the ice making career, hoping someday doing the ice for the Tankard/Scotties and eventually national events.

Other Comments: Limited availability to enter tour events due to maintaining curling ice, but local events would be easy and some travel with enough notice to arrange people to fill in. Practice ice will be easy to get.

Position: Skip – will play any position
What are you looking for in a team: Competitive

Years Curled & Accomplishments Along the Way: I have been curling for 16 years winning high school provincial silver & gold (Alberta), as well as a college provincial silver (Alberta). I was also a junior provincial competitor in 2014 (Saskatchewan).

Bio of Myself: I grew up on the Saskatchewan side of Lloydminister which is why my curling accomplishments are mostly Alberta, but have been a Saskatchewan resident my whole life. I currently have a Bachelor of Commerce in marketing from the UofS and I work for 96.3 Cruz FM as an Account Executive. The nature of my job leaved a decent amount of room to schedule around curling. For the past two years I have been working hard to get into the best physical shape of my life. The mental side of my game still needs work, but I am trying. Other pastimes/interests I have include going to movies, eating poutine, and fishing.

Other Comments: I am willing to play any position needed being my goal to play at the Brier someday. If you need any further information please contact me preferably by phone, but email if necessary.
