Randy Ferbey is one of Canada’s most renowned Curlers, having won four Golds and one Silver over eight appearances at the World Curling Championships in addition to six Briers, the latter of which made him an all-time record holder for most Brier wins. This illustrious career spanning nearly 17 years earned Ferbey the TSN title of Greatest Canadian Male Third. He was also inducted into the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame, Curling Canada Hall of Fame, and World Curling Hall of Fame.
«It is such a privilege to be a part of these Everest championships! Everest is taking their events to the next level, and I can’t wait to see what is to come. The sky is the limit,» said Jennifer Jones. «The energy and excitement around the events is going to be contagious and I know the competitors will feel like stars for the week! I can’t wait to watch!»
Jennifer Jones is an Olympic gold medalist, two-time winner of the Women’s World Championships, record setting six-time Scotties Canadian Champion, and a 15-time Grand Slam of Curling Champion. Jones and her team also made history as the first Manitoba-based curling team to win an Olympic gold medal. Additionally, Jones made history as the first female skip to go through the Olympic Games undefeated. Her incredible career led to her being named the greatest Canadian female skip and overall curler in history in 2019 by a TSN poll of broadcasters, reporters, and top curlers.
«It’s an honour to join this executive committee alongside Jennifer, Randy and the Everest team. This is a group that is simply passionate about building the game of curling,» said Cheryl Bernard. «From the Everest Curling Club Championships, where we will work to make this experience one of the highlights of these curlers’ careers, to the Everest Canadian Senior Curling Championships where we look to showcase and honour the masters of the game. It is our hope that we can build on these incredible events, which will in turn grow our sports impact and reach for many years to come.»
Cheryl Bernard is a two-time Olympian, Olympic silver medalist, and a four-time Alberta women’s champion. Inspired by her father’s fight against cancer, she also created «Curl for a Cure» in support of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
Cheryl is currently the CEO at Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame as well as a curling broadcaster with TSN. She believes that her success in sport provided a platform to give back, she is the Ambassador for Goodwill of Alberta as well as Big Brother and Big Sisters.
All three members of the Executive Committee will be working with Everest to improve the experience of the Everest Canadian Curling Club Championships, as well as the Everest Canadian Senior Curling Championships.
