The draw is now set for the Provincial Masters Curling Championship, for curlers age 60 and over, taking place from January 16-20 at the Cornwall Curling Club.
The two-team Women’s Division will play a Best of Five series, while the ten-team Men’s section will play a modified triple knockout format, qualifying teams for a two game championship round. If one team wins all three of the triple knockout sections, the championship round will not be required. If a team wins two of the three sections, they will have a “double life” in the championship round, winning the event if they take either game, while their opponent would have to win both. If there are three separate winners, the team who played in the most qualifying teams will receive a bye to the second game. If teams are tied in qualifying games played, the team who qualified first gets the bye.
Here is the Men’s draw:

Defending champs are the Shirley Berry rink from the host club and Summerside’s Silver Fox Curling and Yacht Club, and the Ted MacFadyen team from the Fox. MacFadyen is not back this year, but his three teammates are, skipped by Mel Bernard.
The men’s and women’s winners and runners-up (which will include both women’s teams this year) will earn the right to compete in the Maritime Masters Championships. Dates and venue for this event have not yet been announced. The winning teams, or the highest-finishing men’s and women’s rinks that choose to attend, are invited to participate in the 2015 NVA Hotel Divison Canadian Masters Championships, March 30 to Apr. 5 at the Whitehorse Curling Club in the Yukon.
