Grand Slam of Curling Syncrude Elite 10 event passes go on sale October 29
Event passes for the inaugural Syncrude Elite 10, a Grand Slam of Curling event taking place at the Suncor Community Leisure Centre March 18-22, 2015 go on sale on October 29.
The Grand Slam of Curling Syncrude Elite 10 will see 10 world-class men’s curling teams battle it out on the ice at CNRL Arena 2 for a $100,000 prize purse. The event builds on the tremendous success of the Grand Slam of Curling National presented by Syncrude, which took place in March 2014 and brought eighteen men’s curling teams to the Wood Buffalo region for an exciting four days of curling action. Syncrude announced their title partnership for the new Elite 10 curling event at ONE Night, the annual celebration of partners and stakeholders hosted by the Regional Recreation Corporation of Wood Buffalo (RRC) on October 25.
“Our region’s passion for curling was proudly displayed during last year’s inaugural Grand Slam event,” said Syncrude Vice President, Government and Public Affairs, Kara Flynn. “We couldn’t be more excited to be a part of the new format coming in 2015, as the atmosphere and community exposure promise to be even better.”
The Syncrude Elite 10 is a new tournament for the 2014-15 Grand Slam of Curling season and is the first new Grand Slam of Curling event since the series began in the 2001-02 season.
“It is an honour to be selected as the host city for this brand new tournament,” said Kelsey Stefanizyn, Co-Chair of the Grand Slam of Curling Syncrude Elite 10 Organizing Committee and Events Manager of the RRC. “We are very excited to once again welcome our partners from Sportsnet back to our region for this event, as well as these elite men’s curling teams. The RRC is also delighted to once again partner with the Fort McMurray Oilsands Curling Club and Syncrude Canada to bring this exciting event to the Wood Buffalo region.”
