What a great weekend! Played in our first event of the season - the King Cash Spiel at Maple Ridge Golden Ears Curling Centre, got our first #EightEnder! Won our first World Curling Tour event of the season (2nd ever for Tyler, Sterling and Matt) and had a fantastic time thanks to all of the great volunteers, ice makers and a special thank-you to Shannon Wilson Joanisse and Dean Joanisse for all of the time and effort they put into the event. Thank-you as well to Curl BC for the support this weekend - we appreciate it. Thank-you to all of our sponsors - was great to be using our Hardline Curling gear and Dynasty Curling Apparel to show off all of our sponsors! Our next event is at the Royal City Curling Club - part of the BC Junior Curling Tour - the Anita Cochrane Memorial Spiel. #HardlineNation #WCT
It is hard to believe that it is already August which means we have completed our sponsorship drive for the 2018/2019 curling season. We are both humbled and grateful for the incredible generosity that our sponsors have shown our new team line-up as we pursue our curling goals!
We are going to start with our longtime equipment sponsor @HardlineCurling who has been with Team Tardi since prior to the Canada Winter Games in 2015. Hardline has been with us through thick and thin and supports us unconditionally - they are an incredible supporter of our team and we can't wait to get back on the ice with our #icePadMaxim #HardlineNation brooms so that we can play to the best of our potential. We think it's pretty cool that there are so many great teams that have switched to Hardline - a lot of that has to do with Archie and Stan! Thank-you so much for your continued support and generosity.
We are thrilled that @DynastyCurling is sponsoring our team this year. With Kevin Hurrie's creative designs we can't wait to rock our new uniforms! We love how the jackets and shirts feel and can't wait to have our sponsors highlighted when we compete. Thank-you to everyone at Dynasty for your support - from the designing process, to ordering and to the quality and care that is put into us looking our best!!
Stay tuned as we highlight more of our sponsors in the coming days!!
We are thrilled that giving back is important to our two new players. Both Alex and Matthew are committed to giving back to their curling communities. We are so excited that they are joining our team and we look forward to volunteering in the community together. Here are a few pictures of Matthew volunteering in his community.
It has been a whirlwind couple of days and it is just sinking in that we will once again be wearing the Maple Leaf on our backs at the 2018 World Junior Curling Championship in Aberdeen, Scotland. We feel so honored to have this privilege.
We have invited Jacques Gauthier, from Team Manitoba to join us as our fifth. He was the all-star for the thirds at this years New Holland Canadian Juniors and brings a positive attitude and great curling skill to our team!
