All eyes are on Moose Jaw, Sask. this week as the Canada Cup is in full gear.
The event, now in its 10th year, will declare the men's and women's champions on Sunday, but the real carrots are two prized berths into the 2013 Olympic Trials.
Last year, Kevin Martin of Edmonton and Jennifer Jones of Winnipeg won the Cup and cashed the first Trials tickets; they since have been joined by world men's champion Glenn Howard of Coldwater, Ont. and Canadian women's champion Heather Nedohin of Edmonton.
Those four are back in action this week, looking to score cash from the $140,000 prize purse and, where possible, to ruin other folks' Olympic dreams.
