The Grand Slam of curling is taking over Merlis Belsher Place in Saskatoon this week and top-ranked teams from all over the world will be competing for the World Financial Group Masters title.

Team Homan from Ottawa said they love coming to Saskatoon to play.

“We’d obviously like to do really well coming up in Saskatoon. We love playing in Saskatoon; the fans, the energy in that building is always top notch and so we’re excited to get started,” said skip Rachel Homan on Monday.

She said the team had a great start to the season.

“Hopefully, we can continue with some of the wins that we have had earlier this season and keep getting better as the year goes on.”

The event starts at 8 a.m. Tuesday and runs until Sunday. There will be four draws each day.
