They tried hard, but the Yukon Curling Association came up just short in its bid to join the 2013 Kraft Celebration Tour.
The YCA, representing the Yukon and Northwestern B.C. curling communities of Dawson City, Mayo, Watson Lake, Teslin, Atlin B.C. and Whitehorse, lost its match-up with the Fort Smith Centennial Arena.
The YCA was hoping to receive a $25,000 grant, as well as play host to a live TSN SportsCentre broadcast later this summer.
