CBRM TO LAUNCH BID FOR SCOTTIES CURLING CHAMPIONSHIP
SYDNEY — Today at Centre 200, the Cape Breton Regional Municipality will be launching a bid to host the 2019 Scotties Tournament of Hearts curling championship.
The council had passed a motion to contribute $150,000 to bring the national women’s curling championship to Sydney.
Mayor Cecil Clarke will be at the official launch to announce the bid to the media.
The launch is taking place today at 11 a.m. in the Centre 200 concourse with support from the community and Sydney Curling Club members.
In 2016, there was an unsuccessful bid for the Sydney Curling Club to host the Scotties.
