Team Saskatchewan won the Canadian Mixed National Championship in North Bay ON.  Max Kirkpatrick’s team from the Swift Current Curling Club — third Jolene Campbell, second Chris Haichert and lead Teejay Haichert — claimed the gold medal  with a 7-4 win over Jamie Koe of the Northwest Territories.

This marks the first CCA national championship victory for Hardline Curling, and we're very happy Team Saskatchewan are Hardline supporters!

The team will represent Canada at the upcoming World Mixed Championship in September 2015.

Team Mike McEwen continued their great start to the season with a win at The National, a Grand Slam of Curling event.  The win marks their 5th win in 6 events this year, with a runner up finish at The Masters, another GSOC event.  It was also the team's 4th career Grand Slam victory.

McEwen beat Brier and Olympic champion Brad Jacobs by a score of 5-2.  After a bit of slow start to the game, McEwen and team got big steals in the 3rd and 7th end to lead 4-2.  In the 8th end, Jacobs had an angle raise double takeout to try and score his deuce to tie game, but ended up jamming shot rock and McEwen stole another 1 to win and claim the title.

McEwen with the win claimed top spot on the World Curling Tour Order of Merit is officially the # 1 team in the world.  They also retain the #1 spot on the money list, and #1 on the CCA CTRS standings.  

McEwen made history with the win - it was Hardline Curling's first GSOC victory!

Team McEwen had also reached the final in the 1st GSOC event of the year - The Masters.  After going down 4 in the finals, McEwen scored an improbable 4 in the 6th end with a shot that was heard around the curling world.  It can be seen here:

In other Hardline news - 

Team Reid Carruthers also played in the National, their 1st Grand Slam event as a team, and they did not disappoint by qualifying for playoffs!  They finished the round robin with a 5-0 record after recording a big win over Bottcher on the Sportsnet televised game.  They lost the quarterfinals game to Jacobs, but despite the loss, proved they are a team to be reckoned with!

In Red Deer, AB, Team Heather Nedohin played the Red Deer Cashspiel and qualified B side by beating reigning Scotties champion Rachel Homan.  In the quarterfinals, they lost a tough battle to Casey Scheidegger.  Team Nedohin appears to be rounding into form, and we look forward to more success for the season.

In Victoria, BC - Team Dean Joanisse claimed the WCT event title at the Vancouver Island Shootout. This marked their 2nd title in 2 seasons with Hardline Curling.  They are great supporters of ours and we congratulate them!
