Grand Slam Cd'n Beef Masters
The second event and first major of the 2018-19 Pinty's Grand Slam of Curling begins on October 23rd.
Fifteen men's and women's teams have been invited based on the World Curling Tour's Order of Merit. Of the top fifteen men's teams DeCruz, Bottcher and Ulsrud declined to participate. In the women's division Sidorova, ranked 15th, also declined
Through a sponsor's exemption Jamie Murphy and Kaitlyn Jones (no relation) were also invited.
The men's and women's divisions have been split into three separate pools each of which will have five teams. Following a round-robin within each of these pools, eight will advance in each division to the QF's. As with all Pinty's Grand Slam events, the five-rock rule will be in effect; counting to five (5) is not expected to become problematic.
Sportsnet, Sportsnet 360 and the CBC will cover it beginning October 25th.
