Full event passes are available now for $40, single games are $5 , Children 12 and under are free when accompanied by an adult. Tickets are available now in TBay at the Fort William and Port Arthur Curling Clubs, also available in Nipigon at Canadian Tire, Zechner's Food Mart and Pelletier's Gas Bar on Hwy 11 at the Lake Helen Reserve.  Also available online at www.nipigoncurlingclub.ca.  Online ticket purchases can be picked up at the venue.  Full event passes and individual game entries will also be available at the venue.
