We regret to inform you that the Gemini Mixed Doubles Slam, December 2 &  3, 2017 at Galt Country Club has been CANCELLED. Despite our best efforts, conflicts with other competitions limited the number of entries and we were unable to field enough teams to make the Gemini Slam viable. Registration fees were e-transferred back to primary contacts on November 29, 2017.
 
Our host hotel (Best Western Cambridge) has been advised. You may cancel your reservation without penalty. Please call 519-623-4000 to cancel.

The Gemini Mixed Doubles Slam is not gone forever, just for now. Mixed Doubles popularity will grow significantly after the 2018 Winter Olympics and we want to give our athletes an opportunity to learn and enjoy this new format. The Gemini Slam will definitely be positioned into our 2018/19 calendar. We hope you will be back to give it a try next season.
 
Please accept our sincere thanks for registering and our regrets for this inconvenience.

Jeff Stoughton is one of the most accomplished skips in curling history. As an athlete Jeff skipped his Manitoba rink to three Brier championships and two World championships. Many try but few succeed in copying Jeff's signature "spinnerama", the trademark delivery he often entertained audiences with. In 2015, Jeff shifted from competition into a new role as Manager of the Canadian Mixed Doubles curling program for Curling Canada. In just two short years, Jeff has played a pivotal role in the rapid expansion of this new discipline.

We are honoured to welcome Jeff Stoughton to the launch of our brand new U25/U21/U18 Mixed Doubles Slam. In this ROCKTalk, Jeff will share his thoughts on the future of Mixed Doubles, and the opportunities it presents for young athletes.
