Cornwall members Team Birt looking for PEI Scotties repeat

The 2021 PEI Scotties Tournament of Hearts Provincial Women’s Curling Championship and the PEI Tankard Provincial Men’s Curling Championship both take place at the Maple Leaf Curling Club in O’Leary from January 29-31, with two teams entered in each event. Entered in the Scotties are the defending champion Suzanne Birt rink from the Cornwall and Montague curling clubs, along with their Montague clubmates the Darlene London team. The Eddie MacKenzie men’s squad from the Crapaud Community Curling Club, who were the finalist team last year, and the Blair Jay foursome from the Silver Fox Curling Club in Summerside are the men’s Tankard entries. Last year’s winning Bryan Cochrane men’s team is not entered this year.
