Green Day a Success at the Worlds

WATCH Riders curl on globalregina.com

Green Day at the Worlds on Tuesday April 5th really set the tone for the fans at the 2011 Ford World Men's Curling Championships in Regina.  The crowd was littered in Green, Canada wore Green Jackets, and even Scotland came out in Rider Jerseys during their evening matchup against team Canada.  Green was also present outside the stadium.  The 5 Saskatchewan Roughriders were in attendance for the Up Close and Personal, and Autograph Sessions, Gainer the Gopher made an appearance and FANfest and the Patch had Green and Football themed activities all day.  Before the Worlds 3 Saskatchewan Roughriders even put down the footballs and picked up curling brooms at the Tartan Curling Club to promote "Green Day" and you can click on the link to the left to watch the Global Footage of that.  Although Scotland recieved the biggest cheers with their Rider Jerseys Canada's Green Jackets made the biggest impact in the end.  In an auction between the Bronze and Gold Medal games the jackets raised nearly $17,000 for the Sandra Schmirler foundation topped off by the Stoughton Jacket selling for $7000.

Team Sask (Simmons) VS Team Canada (Moskowy) February 19th
The Tartan’s own Pat Simmons/Team Saskatchewan Men faced Team Canada Junior Men/Braeden Moskowy Saturday February 19th at the Tartan Curling Club. Saskatchewan’s top men’s team scored 3 in the 8th end to tie Canada’s top junior men’s team.  Both teams will be signed autographs for fans and junior curlers.  After the game there was a send-off party for Team Simmons.  Friends and Family gather to wish Team Sask. well for their trip the Brier!
