While we know that Jennifer Jones’s reigning champions from Winnipeg will be in Sydney as Team Canada, the rest of the field won’t be filled out until after provincial and territorial playdowns are completed in early February.
That’s when the two eight-team pools will be assigned and the matchups for the preliminary round will be set; look for that schedule to be available the week of Feb. 4.
And while we don’t know who will be repping the home province — the Nova Scotia Scotties champion will be crowned on Jan. 27 — we DO know when the home team will be playing over the first five days of the 2019 Scotties. Nova Scotia will play three times on the opening weekend — in Draw 1 on Feb. 16 at 2:30 p.m. (all times AT), and also will play twice on the opening Sunday, at 9:30 a.m. and 8 p.m. Nova Scotia will also plays in Draws 7 (on Monday), 9 and 11 (both on Tuesday) and 13 (on Wednesday).
Once the preliminary round is complete in the 16-team, two-pool draw, the top four teams from each pool move into the Championship Pool, and the remainder of the schedule will be set.
2017 Scotties champ Rachel Homan also will be in Sydney — either as the Ontario champion or playing in the Wild Card Game on Friday, Feb 15, at Centre 200.
