The 2019 Tim Hortons Brier in Brandon attracted about 75,000 curling fans.

The Brier came to a close on Sunday evening with an all Alberta final and in the end, Kevin Koe won 4-3 after making a double take out to count two with his final shot.

Organizers were more than pleased with how the week went at the Keystone Centre in Brandon. Host committee vice chair Ryan Shields was all smiles as the final game came to a conclusion. “We’re thrilled because the week went smoothly and there wasn’t anything else we could have done differently, and the 2019 Tim Hortons Brier was extremely successful in our eyes.”

Shields pointed out everyone enjoyed the facility and the volunteers did a great job.

‘We couldn’t have done this without the 475 workers who stepped forward to help make the week such a hit. Volunteers started months in advance and will be working for another week after the Brier ends. I should mention we didn’t just have Brandon people working here this week, we had people from across the Westman region and from across the province.”

As for future events, Ryan Shields says it’s too early to say what will happen. “We need to evaluate this Brier and enjoy what we’ve accomplished, spend some time with our families again and then maybe open up a conversation to see what happens or if there is a next step. Honestly, we haven’t even gone down that road yet.”
