The Calgary bubble will be near bursting at the seams with teams for the Brier and Scotties national championships.
It's all but a certainty the fields for both events will feature 18 teams from across Canada, an increase of two from previous championships.
And that's good news for some Manitoba teams.
Jason Gunnlaugson of Morris is already returning to the Brier as the Manitoba representative, however, Mike McEwen competed in the 2020 event as Team Wild Card and is destined to return.
On the women's side, Tracy Fleury lost the Scotties wild-card game last year but will likely head to Calgary because Jennifer Jones and Kerri Einarson area already going.
The Scotties goes Feb. 20-28, while the Brier is set for March 6-14.
