About the Elite 10



The inaugural Elite 10 was held in Fort McMurray, Alta., in March 2015, becoming the first new Pinty’s Grand Slam of Curling event since the series started in 2001-02. Winnipeg’s Mike McEwen defeated Niklas Edin of Sweden in the final to become the first champion.

Victoria hosted the 2016 Elite 10 with Brad Gushue of St. John’s, N.L., edging Winnipeg’s Reid Carruthers for the title during a draw-to-the-button shootout.
