With the Energy City's first ever national curling event now in the books, the Estevan Curling Club is taking a break to regroup and look at the future.
"The Curling Club is so pleased with how the Home Hardware Canada Cup went. The volunteers from our club, and from our community and other communities that came in and helped us with it, we couldn't be more pleased with the support we received," stated Manager Pauline Ziehl-Grimsrude, "And for those who came out and watched and participated in the event."
She added that there already seems to be talk as to what could come next.
"We're going to take some time and think about it, maybe analyze and go through what we've just done, and see what potential there is with Curling Canada in the future. But, there really is nothing selected. We do have a beautiful facility, and we do have the ability to host a lot of events for Curling Canada. There's a couple that our venue isn't quite large enough for, but it's a conversation that will wait, maybe a few months before we start diving into that."
"We just a so pleased with the city, and how welcoming the community was to the curlers, the TSN crew, and the CCA (Curling Canada. We have heard nothing but great things from both of those parties, and the players were very happy with the facility, with the event and the hosting."
