The Martensville Curling Club is missing quite a few players this week as both the men’s and women’s provincial Dominion representatives are from that city’s club. The Corey Martens and Heather Burnett teams are playing in Thunder Bay November 18-23, 2013.
The championship website describes this national competition as:
- “The Dominion Curling Club Championship is an annual event for men’s and women’s curling teams who have won their respective local club championships. Winning teams from each club will be “The Dominion Club Champions” and will play down to produce a provincial/territorial champion from all ten provinces and three territories, plus a separate entry for Northern Ontario, who will then compete at the national level.
- The event gives grass roots curling teams from every corner of the country an opportunity to compete in provincial/territorial and national level competition. Club curlers are those who enjoy the sport recreationally, supporting club leagues on a regular basis from September to April. These teams now have a venue to demonstrate their skill against other curling clubs in their province/territory and country.
- This is the ultimate experience for club curlers. Provincial and Territorial Champions receive travel, accommodations, many meals, provincial/territorial on-ice jackets and shirts as well as a championship banner to hang proudly in their home club.”
