Cloverdale Curling Club goes postal
The 2012 Classic kicks off with an evening reception March 31.
Swanton, who was inducted into the Manitoba Baseball Hall of Fame in 2006, was part of the original group of Canada Post employees in Winnipeg who started the curling classic in 1966. Swanton, also a member of the Postal Curling hall of fame, says he hasn't curled in a while, but is raring to get on the ice to help launch the event.
Teams from each province are participating in the 2012 classic, running to April 7.
A different host city is chosen each year.
