Saskatchewan Women’s Curling Tour events in Martensville and Weyburn were cancelled for this weekend, giving this season for the women’s tour another bump in the road.

After an opening test event, another event last month had been stopped in the middle of it due to a positive test from someone who had been in the club days before.

Reportedly, several teams backed out of competing in Martensville, which caused both events to be cancelled.

It’s been a frustrating season for curlers like Candace Newkirk, the third on the Sherilee Orsted rink.

“I think curlers, once we get the chance, we’re elated and we’ll do anything to get out there,” she said. “We’re abiding by rules and we’re social distancing. It’s been frustrating, but once we do get to compete it’s been great. We want to abide by any rules that SHA put out there so that we can compete.”

Newkirk said they were disappointed the event couldn't happen.

“We don’t all live together (on their team),” she said. “We’ve got to try to get in a few extra practices and try to get together a little bit. We’ve got one curler that comes from Alberta so it’s a little bit tougher that way.”

The next event for the provincial women’s tour is scheduled for Dec. 4-6 and will involve Saskatoon Nutana and the Weyburn curling clubs.
