Summerside, pursuing the final two berths available to each gender into the
2017 Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings, Dec. 2-10 in Ottawa.
That's where Canada's men's and women's four-player teams for the 2018

that will attempt to defend the gold medals won by Team Jennifer Jones and
Team Brad Jacobs at the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi.
Team Morris is one of the
contenders on Tim Horton's Rod to Roar.
The 2017 Home Hardware Road to the Roar kicks off with two rounds of
competition on Monday - at 12 noon and 4 p.m. Pacific. Then, from Tuesday
through Friday, it will be four round-robin draws per day - at 4 a.m., 8

On the men's side, John Morris, who won gold playing third for Kevin Martin
in 2010 at Vancouver, is skipping his team of Jim Cotter from Vernon, Tyrel
Griffith from Kelowna and Catlin Schneider from Saskatchewan.
Morris, Cotter and Griffith also participated in the 2013 Road to the Roar,
and along with Brad Jacobs qualified for the Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings
in Winnipeg. Those teams would meet in the Roar of the Rings final, with
Jacobs coming out on top.
