For the first time, Prospera Place in Kelowna opens its ice to curlers, and this will be no ordinary "rock show".

The best teams from Canada, as well as a Swiss rink, will compete in the second leg of the Grand Slam of Curling.

Jock Tyre is the General Manager of the Kelowna Curling Club, and spoke with Daybreak host Chris Walker, in studio.
