Agreement in principle to bring Safeway Championship to Brandon in 2015


Curl Manitoba announced on Friday that an agreement in principle has been reached with the Brandon Curling Club for the staging of the 2015 Safeway Championship.

Pending finalization of contract details, the provincial men’s curling championship will be played at Westman Communications Group Place, Feb. 4-8, 2015.

Past-president Shawn Taylor will serve as the co-chair of the Brandon Host Committee.

“The Brandon curling community is excited to have the opportunity to host the 2015 championship," said Taylor in a release. "It is long past time for us to host another championship curling event. We earned a strong provincial national and international reputation with past events and we look forward to re-newing Brandon’s reputation as one of the best curling hosts,” Taylor said.

While the dates have been booked, the formal agreements between CurlManitoba and the Brandon host committee will be finalized once the Brandon committee has been able to conduct needed discussions with the city of Brandon and Keystone Centre management.
