The Pinty’s Grand Slam of Curling series is expanding again with the addition of two new events for 2015-16.
Kicking off the season will be the GSOC Tour Challenge, running Sept. 8-13 at the Paradise Double Ice Complex in Paradise, N.L. The Tour Challenge will feature 30 men’s and 30 women’s teams competing in a two-tier format tournament.
