A pair of Islanders will be on the ice this weekend as the World Curling Tour kicks off with the Baden Masters in Switzerland.
The Brad Gushue rink from St. John’s, N.L., which includes P.E.I. natives Brett Gallant and Adam Casey, is the only Canadian entry in the 20-team field.
The triple-knockout event has a total purse of about $37,000 Cdn. The Sven Michel rink from Switzerland is back, looking to capture its third consecutive championship at the event.
Team Gushue lost in the quarter-final last year.
Opening draws go Friday at 3 a.m. Atlantic, with the finals Sunday at 8:30 a.m. Atlantic.
