Rocking it.

Nearly 30 curling rinks (or teams) are on the draw in Dawson Creek this weekend from Grande Prairie, Slave Lake, and Japan.

The Dawson Creek Curling Club’s 50th annual Mile Zero Cash Spiel is in celebration of the club’s 50th year – and has more than $50,000 up for grabs on the ice.

“It is certainly an interesting field of teams,” says curling club manager Jeff Ginter.

There are three events on the sheets this weekend, a 12 team competitive division with World Curling tour players on a Peace Curling Tour stop with more than $30K up for grabs. There is 20 team challenge division with teams that are more local, competitive, but don’t tour as much, with more than 12K up for grabs in this division.

“On Sunday we will have Junior and Special Olympic divisions as well,” adds Ginter.

Ginter notes with Dawson being so close to the Alberta border – being part of both provincial associations allows the Club to attract a wider selection of teams.

“There are a couple teams on the competitive side, if they win, they will win their birth to provincials right here in Dawson Creek," he says.

The final draw is expected early Sunday evening.
