The 2012 World Financial Group Continental Cup at the
Langley Events Center in Langley, British Columbia officially launched Wednesday
evening with FAN Appreciation night. Fans had the opportunity to get face time
with all the athletes in the competition and party to sounds of March Hare, a
Vancouver, BC-based show band that plays rock, country and new music hits. But
the action begins Thursday, Jan. 12 with four days of international curling
competition.
This year’s World Financial Group Continental Cup features six
teams representing North America competing against six teams from the rest of
the world. Curling all-stars – like Canada’s Jeff Stoughton of Winnipeg, the
United States’ Pete Fenson of Bemidji, Minnesota, China’s Bingyu Wang of Harbin
and Scotland’s Eve Muirhead of Dunkeld – will clash in Team Games, Mixed
Doubles, Singles, Mixed Skins and Skins. Team North America, which holds a 4-3
edge over Team World since the inaugural Continental Cup was contested in 2002
in Regina, will be defending its dominance in these matchups.
As the title sponsor of this world-class event for the
second year straight and into 2013, WFG is proud to partner with the Canadian
Curling Association (CCA) to actively support a family-friendly sport that is
growing in popularity across the globe. If you’ve never seen a curling match, you’ve
