There is a tight fight on the top of the CTRS ranking and 3 teams of Alberta are in top 6, six in the top 10. Team Bernard is 4th but the score are so close that for now, it would be foolish to predict who’s going to finish first.
For now, we are looking at the Alberta Provincials which will be held on January 25-29, 2012 in Leduc. 12 teams will be competing in the Sobeys arena to earn the right to represent Alberta at the tournament of hearts. Kleibrink was the first team to qualify followed by Nedohin as the leader of the CTRS points last year. 2 spots will be given by dec 1 – the leading team on the CTRS points this year and the leading points team for world curling tour events in Alberta.
As we speak, Team Bernard is still the leader in the CTRS ranking (in the alberta teams), but our squad is followed very closely by Team Sonnenberg who gained ground last week with semi in Red Deer. The good news is, Sonneberg is not playing this week so we are wishing all the best toTeam Bernard who will try to get some distance between them.
Crystal Webster as an interesting lead for the World Tour event in Alberta with one event remaining by Dec 1 so better chance for Bernard is to stay in front of those 2 them in the CTRS ranking.
