World Men's Curling Championship Lethbridge

Seems Team Koe is making an attempt to get some butts i the seats with a 25% discount on tickets, hopefully it'll be a well attended event.

Thanks for this. That’s a cool idea. We’re not too far from Lethbridge and we we’re thinking of going for a few draws.

We’re now having issues with our dog so won’t be traveling.

Go Koe!

Hm. I wonder how low attendance is projected to be if they feel the need to do that.

Price gouging

Could be ticket pricing? On every individual draw ticket there are additional "fees and charges" from 7.50 to 9.00 PER TICKET. Can anyone confirm if you walk up to the ticket window and buy a ticket if they still gouge you, or only online.

Am planning to attend some of the Players' Championship games in Toronto and noted the following all inclusive ticket prices for various draws:

Draw 1: $9.50

Draws 2-12: $21.25

Draws 13-19: $30.00

Clearly a bargoon compared to Lethbridge.

It ain't cheap to host these events. Attendance no longer the gold standard of generating event profits.

In 1982 Brandon had tons of crowds in the 4,500 to 5,800 range.

19 Brier averaged about 3,000-3250 w/ tons of draws having 1250 to 1750.

Lethbridge is a good curling community but only has 1 canadian team, 1 well known international team (Edin).
Fortunately, Kevin Koe the canuck team is Alberta-based and makes a ton of shots.

Pre-sale should give them a ton of gross revenue. Day to day draw sales might be spotty, especially when Canada isn't playing.

Booking Fee, Service Charge, Processing Fee...aren't these all essentially the same thing? and 8.50 total for one ticket?! No wonder people opt to stay home and watch. I purchased NFL tickets this year, and had to play a $30 service fee per ticket...PER TICKET. Last time I pay to go to an NFL game.

I would imagine that Mouat, De Cruz, and Shuster are "well known international teams" to most knowledgeable curling fans. You should probably Google them. They're pretty good. Most of us here already know about them. And we're not even Legends! Imagine that!

Perhaps the paying fans are losing interest in watching 15 professional teams from outside Canada with essentially autoberths to the worlds for 10 years each that train in Canada slam league and coached byCanadians beat our Canadian teams when it’s free on tv and essentially more exciting to watch

$400 event tickets to 20 draws is pretty cheap to anyone but curlers - not many want to spend 10 days in an arena in Lethbridge so they try and sell some on kijiji at 1/2 price and can’t - $15 too much for curlers , less than parking or a hot dog at a jets game

If tickets were $5 not many would go

Out of Canada they can’t sell !00 tickets

Expect Lethbridge to have good attendance

For $4800 you can rent the 20 person sky box for whole week on kijiji ... or for a better deal the slam in Toronto has tickets for $10 on kiji in 2 weeks

VERY good day for the Canadian boys, just had a 11-3 win over Russia. Speaking of Vic, was it really necessary for them to bring up Kevin's trips to the bathroom?!

In Vic's case he says stupid things every day, to either to try and sound intelligent, or relevant. Almost always NEITHER. Stop. Gear affect? Would you ever? Would you not? What if? Why not?

99.9% of viewers know more about the game that you pretend you don't. Enough with the schtick. Let Russ and Cheryl comment and give opinions on strategy, and you stick to counting them up at the end. We know you can count.

I hope people stuck around to catch the end of the Scotland-Netherlands matchup. High quality last few shots. If you have TSN replay ability then go watch that 10th end.

Was also watching online and the WCF announcers saying the same. Watched Japan/Norway game same time as Canada game. Let's just say there are many more opinions of Canada world wide.

Great finish to Scotland vs. Netherlands

Scotty was up 2 without hammer and Mouat made a great tick 'n roll shot to the button, buried behind mountains.

Then, Van Dorp made a tremendous angle raise to chip out Mouat's shot-stone and count 3 for the win.

Scotty now 1-2 with that exciting loss; obviously expect Scotty, Canada, USA, Sweden, Switz to make TOP 6 - the 6th team is the mystery. Could be one of the asian teams?

According to top curlers, winning last rock in the first end increases the chances of winning by 10-20% so how come TSN never shows this important shot?
I realize that TSN hasn't changed so much as a camera angle in 25 years but jeez.
Just like at the end of the championship game, we will get a one question interview with the winning skip, nothing from the other players or losing skip because they have to cut away to a Vic Rauter essay praising the host city and recapping quotes we have already heard during the week.

But thats NOT the formula - and TSN is, if nothing else a formula broadcaster. They'd never switch off the Canadian team - especially prior to the end of the 5th end; but the force may be on (so to speak) if Norway velcros up!!! The next game on the agenda will be Scotland - as there's a semblance of English - thus Russ, Victrola & Cheryl won't be lost in language space!

Pretty sure in 1987 when the worlds were in winnipeg usa won but ramsfelle was playing for Sorum and Sorm met a local married girl “jackie “ and after a week took her back to norway.

Prob the beginning of the teams starting to “ have fun “
