PEI (2 person) Stick Curling Ch’ships start Tues. in Cornwall

The PEI Stick Curling Championships, sponsored by Ferguson-Logan Montague Funeral Home, for two-person teams with Open (any combination male/female) and Women’s divisions, is set for February 7-9 (mornings and afternoons) at the Cornwall Curling Club. 14 Open division and three Women’s division teams from four Island curling clubs are taking part.

Defending champions are the Sterling Stratton/Barry Craswell Open Division team, and the Gloria Clarke/Ruth Stavert women’s duo. Both curl out of the host club, and both are back this year.

The Open Divison will play a single round robin with 2 pools, advancing the top 3 finishers in each pool to a championship round. The Women’s division will play a double round robin, with the 2nd and 3rd place finishers advancing to a semi-final, and the semi-final winner playing the first place team in the final.

The top four Open Division, and top two Women’s Division teams advance to the Maritime Stick Curling Championships, March 14-16 at Curl Moncton. The winning and runner-up Open Division teams are also invited to participate in the Canadian Open Stick Curling Championship, March 23-26 at the Bluenose Curling Club in New Glasgow NS. 

In stick curling there are two curlers per team, who deliver their rocks with delivery sticks, with each team member delivering from opposite ends. Sweeping is allowed only from the hog line to the back of the house at the playing end. Two curlers, one from each team, alternately deliver 6 stones each per end, while their teammate skips that end. The roles are then reversed, and the partners deliver the stones back. No stone may be removed from play until the fourth stone of each end. Games are six ends and take about an hour to play. For more information on stick curling, visit
