Brandonite Scott Ramsay and his Winnipeg-based curling team booked their spot at the Safeway Championship on the weekend.
Ramsay and his team of Mark Taylor, Ross McFadyen and Kyle Werenich went undefeated at a berth bonspiel in Rivers, capping their run with a 7-4 victory over last year’s Safeway Championship runner-up, Sean Grassie.
Meanwhile, Brandon’s Steve Irwin narrowly missed out on securing the other berth awarded at the bonspiel. Irwin, who qualified through the B event, fell 5-4 to Winnipeg’s Bob Sigurdson in the other berth final.
Brandon’s Rob Fowler, former Brandonite Mike McEwen as well as defending provincial champion Jeff Stoughton have already qualified for the Safeway Championship, which will be held at Winnipeg’s MTS Iceplex from Jan. 29-Feb. 2.
