With the current temporary COVID-19 measures being extended until at least January 24, only days before the 2022 PEI Tankard is scheduled to begin, the Curl PEI Board of Directors, with the safety of the athletes, coaches, officials and volunteers in mind, has made the decision to cancel the Tankard.
The event was scheduled to be held at the Montague Curling Club January 26-30, 2022 and was to decide PEI’s representative for the 2022 Tim Hortons Brier in Lethbridge, AB.
As announced last month, the following process will be followed to determine the Curl PEI representative for the 2022 Tim Hortons Brier:
- Curl PEI will invite the PEI team that is leading on the Canadian Team Ranking System (CTRS) as of December 26, 2021 to represent PEI at the national event.
- If that team is not available, with at least 50% of the original roster, Curl PEI will invite the next highest ranking team and so on.
An announcement of the Curl PEI representative will be made when the process is complete.
Curl PEI will continue to consult with health authorities and partners for the remaining events on the 2021-2022 calendar, and remains hopeful that some championship events can be played safely and responsibly this season.
