Gatineau will Rock again in 2016

The 8th edition of the "Challenge de curling de Gatineau" presented by DoubleTree by Hilton Gatineau-Ottawa is part of the World Curling Tour (WCT) and will take place October 16th to 23rd 2016 in Gatineau. This first class sports event will be jointly held at the Centre Sportif Robert Rochon (in the Masson sector of Gatineau) and the Buckingham Curling Club.

This tournament is of international caliber and is now considered one of the biggest ones on the World Curling Tour.
