Draw set for Sept. Curl Atlantic Championship

Curl Atlantic

Here is the draw, along with the team roster list, for the first annual Curl Atlantic Championship, which takes place September 23-26, on arena ice at the Tantramar Veterans Civic Centre in Sackville, New Brunswick, and features the top teams from last season’s Atlantic Canada provincial men’s and women’s championships. This event was created to better prepare the Atlantic provinces’ high performance curling teams to compete on the national and international stage. The winning men’s team will have the opportunity to participate in the Perth Masters from January 5-8, 2012 in Perth, Scotland, while the women’s winner will earn the right to compete in the International Bernese Ladies Cup from January 13-15, 2012 in Berne, Switzerland.

The PEI Men’s rinks are skipped by reigning PEI mixed and six-time PEI junior champion and world junior silver medallist Brett Gallant, along with two-time Canadian mixed and eight-time PEI Tankard champion Robert Campbell. The Gallant rink also includes last year’s men’s Tankard-winning skip Eddie MacKenzie at third, along with Gallant’s former junior teammates Anson Carmody and Alex MacFadyen at second and lead, respectively. The Campbell foursome includes Philip Gorveatt, Eric Brodersen, and Mike Dillon.
Reigning PEI Scotties and former world junior champ Suzanne Birt, along with eight time PEI Scotties winner Kim Dolan are the PEI women’s skips. Other members of the Birt rink are Shelly Bradley, Robyn MacPhee, and Leslie MacDougall, while Rebecca Jean MacDonald, Sinead Dolan, and Nancy Cameron, with alternate Michala Robison round out the Dolan foursome.
Other PEI connections include Robbie Doherty, who was on Campbell’s most recent Canadian Mixed team, and is playing second on the Ian Fitzner-LeBlanc foursome from Nova Scotia, along with Spencer Wicks, lead on the Colin Thomas team from Newfoundland and Labrador and the grandson of Gordon and Wilna Yeo of Summerside.
