Ten curling teams from Alberta will be coming to Crowsnest Pass next weekend to face off in the Southern Alberta Junior Men’s Playdown.

Three teams have the opportunity to move on to play in a provincial, national and world championship for their under-20 age group.

“There’s going to be at least 50 people that are going to need accommodations for probably at least two nights,” says chair of the event and member of the Crowsnest Pass Curling Club Gary Sigsworth, highlighting the opportunity for tourism to show off the Pass.

Four curlers and a coach for each team will be in town for the weekend and possibly parents, friends and supporters of the junior players.

“I expect none of them have been here before,” says Sigsworth. “I’m going to be getting each team a copy of the Visitor’s Guide, which is a fantastic guide for the Pass. I’m also going to be getting some pins from the municipality for each curler and coach, as well as a few extra to pass out to any of the fans that might be accompanying the teams.”

Teams are travelling from Black Diamond, Calgary, Lethbridge, Okotoks, Airdrie and Medicine Hat.

Spectators are invited to watch the Southern Alberta Junior Men’s Playdown for free at the Crowsnest Pass Sports Complex from Friday, December 1 to Sunday, December 3 at. The first qualifying draw is set for December 2 at 10 a.m., the second one December 2 at 7 p.m. and the third one at 1:30 p.m. on December 3.

Crowsnest Pass hosts other prominent curling events throughout the year, like the Mixed Doubles in February, the Shamrock Bonspiel in March and the Bunny Bonspiel around Easter weekend.
