PEI Scotties and Tankard set for Cornwall Jan. 4-7

It’ll be a busy four days from January 4th to 7th, at the four sheet Cornwall Curling Club, as they host both the Tankard PEI men’s curling championship and the Scotties Tournament of Hearts PEI women’s championship, with five teams competing in each event. Future Scotties and Future Tankard junior teams, who may someday enter the Scotties and Tankard, will also be in attendance at the banquet and opening ceremonies, and will be participating in a curling camp at the Charlottetown Curling Complex. 

Admission is just $5 a draw or $20 for a full event pass. Opening ceremonies go at 6:15 pm on Thursday Jan. 4th with draw 2 following at 7 pm.

Both the Scotties and the Tankard will play modified triple-knockout formats, where the winning team from each section also gets to compete in the next section. If a team wins all three sections, they will win the event without a championship round. If a team wins two sections, they will advance to a championship game against the winner of the other section and will take the championship if they win the game. If the other team wins, there will be a second championship game, with the winner of that game going to the nationals. If there are three separate section winners, the team that played in the most section finals will earn a bye to the second championship game where they will face the winner of a game between the other two finalists.

Five rinks to compete in PEI Scotties 

Two teams from the Charlottetown Curling Complex, two from the Cornwall Curling Club, and one from the Montague Curling Club will be competing in the 2018 PEI Scotties Tournament of Hearts provincial women’s curling championship. The defending champion Robyn MacPhee rink from Charlottetown, and the  runner-up Veronica Smith team from Cornwall are among the entrants, along with the 2017 Junior  Women’s champion Lauren Lenentine team from  Cornwall, and the 2015 Canadian Travelers Championship winning team, skipped by Lisa Jackson, and playing out of Charlottetown. Tammy Dewar is skipping the lone Montague entry..

The  PEI Scotties winning team advances to the  national Scotties Tournament of  Hearts, January 27 to February 4 in Penticton BC.
