2018 Friars’ Briar President’s Challenge: Raising the Bar!
We are doing it again! At the Friars’ Briar we are always challenging ourselves to give it our best and make the most of each shot. This year’s President’s Challenge kicks it all up a notch. Bragging rights will go to the team with the most raise takeouts through the course of the first seven games in the tournament. (Game eight on Friday morning won’t count, which means we can make the big announcement at the Thursday evening banquet.) Simply track the number of raise takeouts your team makes in each game, record them on the handy tracking sheet, then do the math after game seven and hand it the President at the beginning of the banquet. The team with the highest score will be treated by the President to a round of suds or a beverage of your choice at the closing luncheon.
P.S. Triple takeouts will count as a “double” but quadruple takeouts won’t. If you’re making quadruple takeouts, you’re in the wrong tournament. Head across town to the Brandt Centre and sign up for the Brier.
P.S.S. “What’s a raise takeout? I’ve never done one of those,” you say. 😊 Well, head over to this handy educational resource and sharpen your skills.
P.S.S.S. Q: “What’s a curling team’s favourite food?” A: “Takeout, of course!”
The Regina Planning Committee would like to thank everyone for sending in their registrations and we are pleased that we now have 24 teams registered.
We just want to encourage all those who have not yet sent in their registration money to do that as soon as possible, so that we are able to complete our financial activities of the budget.
The Regina Friars Briar for 2018 schedule has now been posted. https://friarsbriar.ca/event-schedule/
Please read, especially around the Monday events so you can make travel plans accordingly. If there are any issues, please inform the Registrar promptly in case it may affect Monday draws.
As well, the planning committee has made allowance for Friars to attend the Tim Horton’s Brier on Tuesday morning. See the details below.
The planning committee has decided that we have made the Tues morning ,Mar. the 6th available for our people to go to the Tim Horton’s Brier.
We are asking that people go to the Tim Horton’s site and they can order their own tickets. In this way we don’t have to try and figure out how many tickets to purchase and even if all the people want to go.
The people should know that in addition to the price of the ticket there is a $4.50 service fee and a $2.00 facility for each ticket. The price of the ticket is $26.00 .On line orders have a $ 4.00 processing fee on the complete order so if teams or groups purchase online as one group they can reduce some of the fees. The online order fee does not apply if the purchase is made in person at the box office.
Seats are moving pretty good so our curlers experience is likely going to be better if they get the tickets in advance. That being said tickets for the Tuesday morning will likely be available as a walk up ticket.
