After a lengthy curling season, the Brad Gushue curling team will get a long break after wrapping up the fall/winter/spring portion of their schedule with a quarter-final loss at the Humpty’s Champions Cup in Calgary Saturday.  

Gushue, Mark Nichols, Brett Gallant and Geoff Walker lost 8-5 to Sweden’s Niklas Edin in the event, which featured all the winners on the World Curling Tour this season.

There’s still one more bonspiel left on the schedule — the brand new Everest Curling Challenge, which will be held in Fredericton, N.B. in August.

The event, with a $200,000 purse, will bring together 32 of the world’s top male and female curlers.

In Calgary, Edin scored four in the final end to advance to the semis.

Gushue went 4-0 in the round-robin, and Edin was 2-2.

Brad Jacobs of Sault Ste. Marie, Ont, defeated Kevin Koe of Calgary in the final Sunday night.
