Senior Men's Provincial Curling

Set for Senior Men’s Provincial Playdowns

A victory in Brandon last December means the Winnipeg skip Dean Dunstone’s rink, (which includes Virden’s Graham Freeman and Hamiota’s Allan Lawn) will now compete at the Strathcona Trust provincial playdowns Feb. 20-25, 2019 at the Rivers Curling Club. The Dunstone rink went 4-1 that weekend, losing the A final to Warren before bouncing back with a three-win day on Sunday including a 6-4 victory on the B side against Shawn Taylor of Brandon, followed by a 7-3 victory over Warren in the B final, and finally the victory in the A-B final

The Brooks team went 3-1 on the weekend to earn their berth.
