There’s a push to re-establish the sport in a place that hasn’t won a Brier since 1980
There’s a certain type of pride prairie people exude when it comes to curling; harsh, cold winter nights are spent in small rinks playing the roaring game on natural ice.
There have been many greats to come from the flatlands, including the Richardson brothers who won four out of five Briers starting in 1959. And you can’t talk about curling in Saskatchewan without bringing up the late Sandra Schmirler’s team which won three Scotties, three world championships and Canada’s first Olympic curling gold medal.
