EDMONTON - Perhaps the Canadian Curling Association can consider going a bit off the program.
Tuesday, the CCA announced Cathy King will be inducted into the Canadian Curling Hall of Fame at its annual meeting on June 14.
“Too bad,” said King about the timing. “It would have been nice to do it in Edmonton.”
Considering King will be in watching the Brier starting Saturday in Rexall Place, perhaps a little tribute in front of her hometown crowd would be in order.
In 2012, King became the first curler in history to win a Canadian junior women’s championship (1977-78), a Scotties championship (1998) and then the Canadian senior title.
King found out she was going to be honoured with her induction into the Hall of Fame a couple of weeks ago, a week before the Alberta senior championship.
“That was just special,” she said about getting the phone call while she was taking some down time in Palm Springs.
