Prince Edward Island wins Canadian Mixed

Prince Edward Island, skipped by Robert Campbell of Charlottetown, captured the Canadian Mixed Curling Championship Saturday in Morris, defeating Manitoba in a squeaker, 4-3.

For Campbell, it was his second Mixed title, after winning the 1989 renewal in Brandon, coincidentally the last time Manitoba had hosted the championship.

Campbell becomes the seventh skip to win the Mixed twice, behind only three-time winner, Larry McGrath of Saskatchewan, but he’s the first skip to win Mixed titles so many years apart…21.

It was the first Canadian Mixed title for third Rebecca Jean MacPhee, second Robbie Doherty and lead Jackie Reid.

It was also Prince Edward Island’s third crown since The Mixed began in 1964 in Toronto. Skip Peter Gallant won his province’s first title in 1987. [Read more…]

Kingston to host the 2013 Scotties Tournament of Hearts

Kingston, Ontario – The 2013 Scotties Tournament of Hearts will be held in Ontario, for the ninth time in the event’s history. “It is a privilege to announce that the Canadian Curling Association is bringing this premier women’s sporting event to Kingston,” said Greg Stremlaw, CCA Chief Executive Officer. “We know that curlers and fans will enjoy the warm hospitality and generous spirit this community has to offer.”

 Kingston has not hosted a Canadian Curling Championship since 1957, when Alberta’s Matt Baldwin team won the Macdonald Brier. The last time Ontario won the Canadian Women’s title, was when Marilyn Bodogh skipped her team to victory for the second time, in 1996. In the history of the championship, which began in 1961, the province has won just 5 times. In addition to Bodogh, past champions include Heather Houston (another two-time winner) and Alison Goring.
