As part of JELD-WEN’s ongoing commitment to supporting Canadian sport, JELD-WEN has signed on to sponsor the Jeff Stoughton curling team until 2012. The window and door company currently supports Team Jennifer Jones and was a longtime partner to Team Kerry Burtnyk until his retirement in 2010.
Jeff Stoughton has been curling for 31 years and has won seven provincial championships, two brier championships and World and Players championships. 2010 has already been a great year for Stoughton, winning his eighth Manitoba provincial championship this spring.
The team is made up of Jeff Stoughton (skip), Steve Gould (lead), Reid Carruthers (second) and John Mead (third). Team Stoughton kick off their 2010/11 season at the Monsanto Sliding in Summer Bonspiel, August 23 through 29, 2010 in Warren, Manitoba.
“JELD-WEN has been a proud curling supporter since 2006,” says Chris Sheldon, Director of Marketing for JELD-WEN Canada. “We’re very excited to help this dynamic and skilled team reach their curling goals. We wish them the best of luck in the first game of the season.”
