This year’s tournament features 40 teams competing in 10 divisions. Champions will be crowned in each division on Sunday.

There will also be a cabaret this evening at the Power Dodge Curling Centre, with Third Degree Birnz performing.

The Strippers tournament is the largest recreation hockey tournament in the province. It is also a fundraiser, as the Strippers donate thousands of dollars each year to a variety of organizations in the Estevan area.

It also brings in players from southern Saskatchewan and western Manitoba, creating a considerable economic spinoff for the region.

The Mercury will continue to have updates on the tournament during the weekend.
