REGINA - The schedule and matchups are all set for the 2024 Montana’s Brier in Regina, and they include some big name teams going head to head.

The Brier begins with four games on March 1 and one will feature the four time champions Kevin Koe and his Calgary team, taking on the new Alberta champions Team Aaron Sluchinski of Airdrie.

It will be a rematch of the Alberta men’s final decided over the weekend when Team Sluchinski beat Koe 6-3 to clinch a spot in the Brier. Koe’s rink still qualified as the top ranking at-large team.
