Team Canada is the first to qualify for the 2012 Scotties Tournament of Hearts in Red Deer February 18 – 26. Amber Holland will lead her team of Kim Schneider, Tammy Schneider and Heather Kalenchuk into the Enmax Centrium to defend the national title.
After rolling up an extraordinary run of consecutive victories in sudden-death games over the course of the season – dating back to the Saskatchewan Scotties playdowns – the streak ran out in a last-rock loss to Sweden’s Anette Norberg in the gold medal game of the Capital One Women’s World Curling Championship.
“With Amber here wearing Canada’s colours, it means we’ll have two Saskatchewan teams competing in the Scotties,” noted Sherri Ryckman, Host Committee Chair. “We’ve all seen how passionate Saskatchewan fans are when it comes to supporting their teams, so you know we’re in for a sea of green… it would be a really good idea to get your tickets soon!”
