Grey Power Players’ Championship

Strong of their silver medals at the Olympics, Team Bernard will take on the Grey Power Players’s Championship held from April 13th to April 18th, 2010. It is taking place at the EnCana Events Centre in Dawson Creek, B.C. Having no other choice than let their place to Jennifer Jones and her team to represent Canada to the World Women Championship to fulfill Olympic Winners commitment, they are back! And we, fans, are all eager to see our favorite team, and most especially, their grey blue eyes Skip, Cheryl Bernard.

As information supplement regarding the final of the World Curling Championship, Jones got the bronze medal after all. It is Germany, let by Andrea Schoepp, who was at the Olympics, that won the gold beating in the extra 8-6 the Scotland team lead by Eve Muirhead (who was also present at the Olympics) that was clearly disappointed of this lost, especially after such a great win the night before over the Canadian team. It is a second title for Scheopp, first one won 22 years ago.

Back to our main course: the Grey Power Players Championship is part of the glad slam tournament of the Curling season. Cheryl is seeded second and will take on 15th-seeded Kerry Flett. The event features a triple knockout format along with a total purse of $100,000 (CDN). It is also the last event of the year that will give point for the ranking. Cheryl is very close of Jones, so, there might be a chance for her to finish first.
