CTRS berths shaken up by team changes

Brandonite Mike McEwen and his Winnipeg-based team have secured a berth in the provincial men’s curling championship that will be played at Westman Place next year, but two other berths that should already be handed out will be decided next season.

Jeff Stoughton lost his defending champion berth because his team broke up. Brandonite Rob Fowler, who will play third for Stoughton next season, and William Lyburn also lost chances for Canadian Team Ranking System berths with their teams parting ways. McEwen’s team earned the other CTRS berth.

CurlManitoba changed its bylaws to deal with the situation and will award the defending champion berth based on the Manitoba Curling Tour point standings next season, giving the MCT five spots. The other CTRS points spot will be given to the Manitoba team with most CTRS points acquired in the 2014-15 season as of Dec. 10.

The same ruling was made for the provincial Scotties Tournament of Hearts berths.

CurlManitoba has also added one berth for the host club at both the mixed and Dominion Club provincials.

A mixed doubles event will be added to the under-18 championship, while a bell rule will be in effect for CurlManitoba events with eight end games.
