I would like to first briefly introduce myself to you. My name is Curtis Atkins, President of the Manitoba Curling Tour and elected in 2016. I have been a curler and involved in the sport since before I could walk. I grew up in curling clubs, all over Manitoba. I have participated in junior programs, high school curling, the MCT and WCT circuit my whole life. Curling has been an extracurricular activity for me but also a lifelong passion.
