Airdronian Aaron Sluchinski and his team are heading to the 2024 Montana's Brier after winning the provincial championship. They will be wearing the Alberta colours.
Sluchisnki and his team had to knock off curling powerhouse Kevin Koe two times in the tournament, including the final to win the 2024 Alberta Boston Pizza Cup (provincial championship) on Sunday.
"You go into this championship every year just thinking how cool it would be to win and make it to the Brier. Now we finally did it."
Sluchinski, the skip of the team has Jeremy Harty as the third, Kerr Drummond as the second and Dylan Webster as the lead.
"We played great. Everybody brought it this weekend and it was fun from my end to see everything coming together."
The 2024 Montanas' Brier is taking place in Regina Saskatchewan from March 1-10. Sluchinski has been to the Bier before as a spare. This is the first time he is going with his own team.
"We're going to go in and soak in the whole experience and hopefully be able to compete for a championship as well. If we keep playing the way we are, there's no reason we can't beat any of the teams there."
The Bier is a national tournament that brings in 18 of the top curling teams in Canada to compete to represent the country on the world stage.
Sluchinski went on to talk about what it would mean to him if they could pull off the Brier win.
"I think it'd be a life-changing experience. You definitely would go down in the history books. Our main goal is to go down and soak in the experience with one another and our families."
This won't be the only time Sluchisnki will be representing Alberta, he and his wife Amanda will represent Alberta at the 2024 Canadian Mixed Doubles Curling Championship.
