Calling All Cool Shooters to the Red Deer Curling Centre!

Saturday, February 18 is the day the best women’s teams in the country embark on a weeklong quest for Canada’s national curling crown at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts in Red Deer. At the same time, another group of competitors will be shooting for a championship title of their own – in the finals of the Cool Shots club challenge in the HeartStop Lounge. The Red Deer Curling Centre will host the second Cool Shots qualifying tournament February 6 – 9, with the finals scheduled February 10, to determine who moves on to the championship playdowns.  The competition is open to everyone… and entry is free! Two-player teams will compete for prizes of $350, $100 and $50 for the top three spots in the qualifying round, along with Opening Weekend event passes for the Scotties at Westerner Park. And, the stakes get even higher when the action moves to the HeartStop.  The champions win $1,000 with $350 awarded to the second place team and $150 for third spot.  The home club of the champs will receive a cheque for $5,000. To get your name in the game, just visit the Red Deer Curling Centre, phone 403-346-3777 or contact the club online at “You Gotta Be There” for all the cool shots at the 2012 Scotties Tournament of Hearts, February 18 – 26.  For your event pass to the action on the ice and in the HeartStop Lounge just click here.
