Curling Canada – It’s the final step on the road to Pyeongchang, South Korea, and the top nine men’s and top nine women’s curling teams in Canada are hoping to take it.

The 2017 Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings Canadian Curling Trials, scheduled for Dec. 2-10 at the Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa, will decide Canada’s men’s and women’s four-player teams for the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.

There, Canada will be seeking to defend the gold medals won by Brad Jacobs and Jennifer Jones in 2014 at Sochi, Russia.

Both Jacobs, from Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., and Jones, from Winnipeg, will be at the 2017 Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings, as will reigning world champs Rachel Homan of Ottawa and Brad Gushue of St. John’s.

For media requiring credentials, please apply on-line at www.curling.ca/championships/media-accreditation-request-form/, by no later than Nov. 27, 2017. A week or so before the event, you will be sent a confirmation letter outlining the on-site accreditation procedures.

Those requesting credentials should also email a high-resolution mugshot of themselves to media@curling.ca to make the on-site accreditation process easier.

Please note: On-ice photographers will be required to wear black clothing and shoes and restrict themselves to designated shooting areas during the games. There will be no exceptions to this guideline.

A limited number of rooms at preferred rates at the Brookstreet Hotel in Kanata is being held for media looking for accommodation during the 2017 Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings. Those needing accommodation need to book their rooms quickly as space is very limited. Rooms will go for $149 plus taxes per night. To book a room, contact Amanda Munro at amanda.munro@brookstreet.com.
