Now look ahead to March 2019 Brier

Brandon, MB (CKLQ) - The 2019 Brier committee and Brandon First experienced the 2018 Brier in Regina before they get ready to put on a show in exactly one year at the Keystone Centre.

The 2018 Canadian Men's Curling Championship was the last time committee members could go experience Brier event before it makes it way to the Wheat City next year.

Brandon First set up a booth to represent the city and promote next year's event.

But it was also a chance to learn for the committee.

Jackie Nichol, Co-chair for the Brier and a board member for Brandon first says it gave them a chance to learn what works during the national championship.

"We got to see what activities worked in which rooms," said Nichols, "We also got to see how organizers pulled it off."

Nichol says they also got to see how the tournament was covered under one roof, which they plan to do here at the Keystone Centre.

"It will nice for us because we have the whole Keystone Centre to use." said Nichols.

Now the planning starts for Nichol and the rest of the committee, and they plan to make it a memorable experience.

"We're trying to use the Brier as a stepping-stone to bigger and better events in the future and make Brandon a world-class city." said Nichols.

Tickets are now on sale for the 2019 Brier, which you can find more information by clicking here.
