GSOC prize purses rise. Entry fees gone too?
The Grand Slam of Curling has announced an increased prize purse for this year's events, starting with the Masters. This is over and above the increase they'd already dispersed from the ending of the Elite 10.
For the Masters, the new total purse is $150,000 CDN for each gender.
Tournament winners get $35,000. Runners-up get $20,000. Semifinalists $15,000. Quaterfinalists $10,000. Non-finalists get $3000 per round robin win.
They have also removed all mention of an entry fee from the rules page. There had previously been one listed at $1200. It's either been dropped entirely or hidden from public view.
