Following four days of high level competition, showcasing 21 top female teams representing Japan, Scotland, USA and Canada, AMCC's Team Peterson drew the button for a 7-6 win over defending champions Team Robertson thereby earning a cheque for $4,000.
(To no surprize) the hardworking staff and 30 or so volunteers delivered another first class event at the Home Of Champions. Title sponsor, Atkins Curling Supplies, and the many partner sponsors were very generous in providing the level of financial support commensurate with attracting teams competing for cash and acquiring points to improve their standings on the MCT, WCT and CTRS. Rob's expert assistance, both in planning and executing the Event, was instrumental in achieving the desired results.
Although spectator support (particularly from the Club membership) could have been better, the Event nevertheless generated fairly decent revenues for future utilization by the Club. Atkins Curling Supplies may be returning to the AMCC for an even bigger and better event in the 2017/18 curling season.
