Contests Pinty’s Grand Slam of Curling’s TCA Challenge presented by Princess Auto

The Pinty’s Grand Slam of Curling and Princess Auto are running a challenge within Toronto Curling Association clubs as to who can sell the most tickets for the 2020 Princess Auto Players’ Championship in April. Each TCA club will be given a unique code to use when buying tickets online. TCA clubs will be divided into 5 groups based on membership numbers.
