The Cool Shots club competition leading up to the 2012 Ford World Women’s Curling Championship – March 17-25 in the Lethbridge ENMAX Centre – is ready to roll in southern Alberta.
Members of all 14 clubs in the region are invited to take part in playdowns at the Lethbridge Curling Club, Saturday, February 4; Taber Curling Club, Saturday, February 5; and Fort MacLeod Curling Club, Saturday, March 10.

The clubs heading to Fort MacCleod are Claresholm, Picture Butte, Pincher Creek and Nobleford. Competitors should register by contacting the respective host clubs.
Teams of two will compete in the Cool Shots game – the small-scale version of the real deal, played on shuffleboard-style tables. Winners in each event will be awarded a $350 cash prize for first, $100 for second and $50 for third place. Plus, they’ll receive a pair of Opening Weekend ticket packages to the Ford World Women’s Curling Championship.
For every 30 members that register for the competition, the clubs will receive a pair of Old Classic ticket packages to distribute as they please or use as a club fundraiser.
The winners also qualify for the Cool Shots championship March 17 in the Original 16 Patch where the prize stakes will rise to $1,000 for first, $350 for second and $150 for third. And, the home club of the grand champions receives $5,000 cash!
