The two-time defending champion Jamie Newson team from the Silver Fox Curling Club, and the Charlottetown Curling Club’s Tyler MacKenzie rink, who were finalists the last two years, are back this year, along with the Alex MacFadyen squad from Charlottetown, the Chase MacMillan and Lauren Ferguson junior teams from Cornwall, the Nick Blanchard foursome from Crapaud, and the George Koke, Philip MacDonald, and Larry Richards teams from Montague.

The nine rinks will play a modified triple knockout draw, with the winners of each section advancing to a two-game championship round. Winners from each section drop down to compete in the next section. If a team wins all three draw sections, they will be declared champions, and the championship round will not be played. A team winning two sections will advance to both championship games and take the championship if they win either game, will their opponent would have to win both sections.

The winning team will advance to the 2021 Canadian Mixed Championship, Nov. 7-15, 2020, at the Canmore Golf and Curling Club in Alberta.

3. If there are three separate winners: the team that played in the most qualifying games* advances to B and the other winners play off in A. If there is a tie in the number of qualifying games played, then the team that qualified earliest goes to B and the other two teams play off in A.
