Countdown to the Brier event is set to take place in Brandon this coming week.

An outdoor curling rink has been created at the skating oval in Brandon and people are encouraged to come out and try some jam pail curling.

Single draw tickets go on sale starting January 16th.

Host committee co-chair Ryan Shields invites people to come out to the countdown to the Brier event, curl and meet a local curling celebrity.

“Mike McEwen was born in Brandon and he’ll be taking part in the curling and will be on hand to sign autographs, take pictures and visit with curling fans.”

The outdoor curling will take place at the skating oval between 1 and 2 pm on January 16th. The Tim Hortons Brier will be in Brandon March 2-10 at the Keystone Centre.
