What else is going on at Canadian Beef Masters

October 16, 2018, 3:03 PM

There’s so much more to the Pinty’s Grand Slam of Curling than, well, curling!

Our can’t-miss live events include plenty of additional activities beyond what you see from watching on TV at home. Here are some other things to check out at Rath Eastlink Community Centre during the Canadian Beef Masters as we hope you enjoy the full Pinty’s Grand Slam of Curling experience.

Pinty’s Pub & Grill Zone

The premier destination to watch all of the action right at ice level. Get up close to the game like never before in the Pinty’s Pub & Grill Zone. Best of all: no extra admission is required! Just come on down and make yourself comfortable but don’t wait as space is limited and fills up fast. You never know, you may even meet one of our Pinty’s Grand Slam of Curling superstars (just keep an eye on your Pinty’s chicken wings!)

Junior GSOC & Future Rockstars

It’s all about helping kids. The Junior Grand Slam of Curling and Future Rockstars programs were founded in 2012 to give young curlers the chance to play on world-class arena ice and learn tips of the trade from the stars.

Reid Carruthers, Niklas Edin, Brett Gallant, Jocelyn Peterman and others have helped out with these programs in the past by sharing their vast knowledge of the game and providing memorable experiences for the next generation of stars as they continue their journeys in the sport.

The Junior GSOC features four local junior teams participating in a clinic and game with an elite curler assigned to coach each team. Future Rockstars is an hour of open ice for all of the Little Rocks and juniors within the community to come out, enjoy the game, and meet some of their favourite curlers.

MC Pete

Peter Steski is one of the Original 18 skips of the Pinty’s Grand Slam of Curling and has now taken his talents from the ice to the microphone as our master of ceremonies. Steski’s hilarious player introductions are a hit among the fans (and yes, even among the curlers he grills too) so make sure you arrive on time for the start!

Grand Slam Social House

Looking for some fun between draws? Look no further than right next door to the arena! Your ticket grants you access for the Grand Slam Social House, where you can enjoy local musicians, food and drinks.

Hot tip: Canadian Beef will be hosting a special evening with free samples and a special Q&A with curlers prior to the evening draw on Thursday.

Not sure how to find the Grand Slam Social House? Look for the signs in the Rath Eastlink Community Centre, or ask one of our wonderful volunteers!
