2022 Friars’ Briar

March 7, 2022 -

March 11, 2022


Lethbridge, AB

Hello Friars!

On behalf of the executive, I’m pleased to confirm that the Friars’ Briar 2022 will be held in Lethbridge on March 7-11. 
Lee Lovebridge will be heading up the planning committee. If you are interested in helping out in that capacity I’m sure he’d be happy  to hear from you: [email protected]. The Lethbridge club is fairly new and looks to be a terrific venue for us! As most of you will already know, the Tim Horton Brier will be held in Lethbridge during the same week. We haven’t been in a Brier city in a number of years and so I’m sure it will be an exciting year to attend the Briar/Brier. The planning group will plan for a maximum of 24 teams so be sure to register early once registrations open (later this year).
Wishing you an enjoyable summer and hope that we’ll all be back in our clubs in fall!
