Sherwood Park’s Terry Morris has been active in the promotion and development of the sport of curling in Alberta and across the nation for the better part of four decades. During that time, most of Terry’s exploits have flown under the radar, including his efforts to unite the sport’s governance structure which led to the establishment of the Northern Alberta Championship Curling Society, as well as the Alberta Curling Federation (Curling Alberta), which represents the province with Curling Canada. Terry’s curling roots began in Edmonton after he married, becoming a competitive curler, builder and leader.
While you typically won’t see Terry’s name in the headlines, his dedication and hard work behind the scenes have ensured countless curling events were run efficiently and professionally, while leaving behind a positive legacy in their host communities.
Terry’s incredible administrative and organizational skills allowed him to play an integral role on the organizing committees of every major curling event held in Edmonton since 1987, including the 1987 Brier (vice chairman), the 1999 Brier (chairman/president), and the 2005 Brier (chairman/president) - the largest and most successful Brier in its history. Over 281,000 people attended the event, held from March 5 – 13, 2005 at Rexall Place.
He has also played an important role in the success of the 2007 Ford World Men’s Curling Championship, and the 2009 Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings Canadian Curling Trials.
Today, Terry continues to work with as an event manager with Curling Canada.
