The PEI Masters Curling Championships, with Men’s and Women’s divisions for curlers age 60 and over, take place from Jan. 27-30 at the Maple Leaf Curling Club in O’Leary. Defending champs are the Sandy Hope women’s rink from the Cornwall Curling Club and the Ted MacFadyen team from the Silver Fox Curling and Yacht Community Complex in Summerside. There was only one women’s entry, so there will be no women’s playdown, and the Sandy Hope rink will repeat as women’s champions. The MacFadyen rink is back this year as one of the seven men’s rinks entered.
Winning and runner-up teams advance to the Maritime Masters, March 16-18 at the Silver Fox Curling and Yacht Community Complex in Summerside.
The winning Men’s and Women’s teams also earn the right to compete in the Canadian Masters, April 3-9 in Guelph, Ontario.

|Date||Time||Draw #||Ice 1||Ice 2||Ice 3||Ice 4|
Explanation for MA/MB:
1. One team wins all three qualifiers: Championship Round is not required.
2. One team wins two qualifiers. They play in both X and Z (and win the event if they win either game), the other winner plays in Y (and has to win both games).
3. Three separate winners: the team that played in the most qualifying games* plays in Z and the other winners play off in X and Y. If there is a tie in number of qualifying games played, then the team that qualified earliest goes to Z and the other two teams play off in X and Y.
*Qualifying games are in yellow on the schedule
