Humpty's Champions Cup April 29 - May 3, 2020

The World’s top curlers will be in Our House! Humpty’s Champions  will be in town from April 29 to May 3, 2020.

Travelling to Olds, AB, for the community’s first Grand Slam event, the Humpty’s Champions Cup showcases the top 12 mens and 12 womens winning teams from the 2019-20 curling season in one final showdown. The exceptional talent pool, including the season’s Grand Slam champions, will compete in round-robin play for a combined $250,000 purse and the coveted Humpty’s Champions Cup title.

With the Jennifer Jones' rink being added to the Humpty’s Cup, it will be a homecoming of sorts for local curling product Jocelyn Peterman! 

We look forward to seeing you in the stands!
