CURLSASK and the Melville Curling Club are pleased to announce that the 2015 SaskTel Tankard Provincial Men’s Championship will be held in Melville, February 5 – 8, 2015 to be held in the hockey arena at the Horizon Credit Union Center.
“Melville has always been a great host to numerous CURLSASK events at the curling club” said Brian Hill, CURLSASK President, “and we are confident that the host committee, volunteers and community will put on an excellent event in their new facility.”
This will be the first time the recently built Horizon Credit Union Center has hosted a curling event. The new facility opened late fall 2011 and not only houses the 1500 seat arena but also meeting convention rooms, walking track and fitness center. Melville last hosted the Tankard in 1998 in the previous Melville Stadium. The Provincial Men’s winner that year was Rod Montgomery’s Team from Moose Jaw.
“The Melville Curling Club is very pleased and excited to have been awarded the opportunity to host the 2015 Men’s Provincial Tankard”, commented Larry Peterson, Vice-President of the Melville Curling Club and the Host Committee Chairperson. “Melville has hosted several events for CURLSASK in the past and we are looking forward to doing so again. It is a great opportunity to promote the sport of curling in our area and promote our city and its new facility, the Horizon Credit Union Center.”
