The Moose Jaw Ford Curling Centre will have a full list of 16 teams this weekend for the Saskatchewan women's curling tour stop.

Rinks with local skips Lorraine Arguin, Elaine Osmachenko and Penny Barker will be competing along with teams skipped by Michelle Englot and Sherry Anderson, and a team from China skipped by Yu Han.

Barker has already clinched a spot in the provincial Scotties with a SWCT win earlier in the season. She and her team have had a great bonspiel season so far and are hoping for a good run here.

“I think we’ve been playing really consistently,” she said. “This past weekend, we were in Lloydminster, and we had a really strong weekend and played really well, had a tight one in the quarterfinal and lost that one. Still, we just keep doing what we’re doing and carry that forward into this weekend in Moose Jaw.”

Anderson will be playing both her senior team and her Scotties-eligible team.

The field is a strong one, and the cash payouts indicate how tough it is. First place gets $1,500, second gets $1,100, third and fourth will win $900 and fifth and sixth will win $700 each.

There are 16 teams at this spiel. Draws start at the Curling Centre at 6:30 Friday.
