In a province so abundant in agricultural resources, there’s nothing quite as disturbing as the mere mention of the word “drought”. Saskatchewan is almost as serious about its curling… and when it comes to Brier championships, the dreaded word has been hanging in the air for the past three decades.
The 2012 Tim Hortons Brier will be contested March 3 – 11 in Saskatoon’s Credit Union Centre…. that much we know for sure. But the question of who will be curling in home-province colours is still to be decided.
Alberta is filled with former Saskatchewan residents who’ve headed west in search of opportunities, so Pat Simmons fits right in as the first-year vice-skip for Kevin Koe’s curling team.
Kevin Koe lived the ultimate curling dream in 2010, winning two of the sport’s most prestigious events – the Tim Hortons Brier and Capital One World Men’s Curling Championship.
Veteran Pat Simmons will make his fifth Tim Hortons Brier appearance, when the Canadian men’s curling championship gets underway at the John Labatt Centre in London, Ontario on March 5.
