The tournament starts this Friday, November 5th, and the draw is out: Team Bernard’s first match is at 1.00pm (MT) against Team Kaufman. This is a triple knockout formula, so, Overton-Claphman, Sweeting and Nedohin are on their side of the draw as possible tight battle, but, we never know.
The Red Deer Curling Classic wasn’t always called this way. Prior to 2007, it was called The Community Savings Ladies Classic, and i guess it did take many appellations since it exists. It is held at the Red Deer Curling Club in Alberta, to similar dates each year.
Team Bernard does well in this tournament usually qualifying for the playoffs. In fact, they won it in 2008. They are practicing a lot these days to be able to repeat that kind of performance. Interesting fact: Carolyn won it with Team Bryden in 2004.
