Curling teams from all across the Peace River Region will be “hurrying hard” to Sexsmith.
This weekend, the Sexsmith Curling Club will host the second Pomeroy Inn & Suites Curling Tour Championships.
Teams from all across the Peace, including Grande Prairie, Sexsmith, Dawson Creek and Fort St. John will all be taking part in the event.
The tournament will include two separate divisional competitions. The first is the SunLife Competitive Division, with $10,000 in prizes. The second is the PCA Challenge Division, with an $8,000 prize purse.
Fort St. John has teams competing in both divisions. Team Mark Heartt is a previous winner of the Grande Prairie Tour event. The team will compete in the SunLife Competitive Division. Team Glen Godberson is also a winner of the Grande Prairie tour event and will be competing in the PCA Challenge Division.
A new tournament champion will be named this year since last year’s champion, Dave Buehler, has moved to the competitive division and did not qualify for this championship.
