Updated: CanAm Cup USA Men’s Curling Tour to Canada stops here Nov. 16. Come on out and cheer on our teams!

The inaugural CanAm Cup of Curling kicks off this month, and PEI, including the Cornwall Curling Club, will be part of it. In 2017 at the World Men’s Curling Championships in Las Vegas, Peter Inch of Curling Canada and Rich Lepping, chair of the US Curling Association, met for the first time, and charted a path leading to the first Canam Cup of Curling tour, designed to foster fellowship and tradition between American and Canadian curlers. The tour will alternate between the two countries every five years, with Canada acting as the first host.

This month the United States team—led by Captain Steve McKee— will take to the four Atlantic Provinces and, for almost three weeks, play for the Lepping-Inch Trophy. Also known as the Chairman’s Cup, the trophy was donated by the chairmen of the respective curling associations. The trophy is an antique George V English sterling silver presentation bowl dating from 1919. Valued at $10,000 US, it will travel between the two countries and be engraved with the winning team’s name and country.
