Autumn Gold Curling Classic

The Curlers Corner Autumn Gold Curling Classic (formerly the Trail Appliances Curling Classic) is a women's World Curling Tour event held annually on the Canadian Thanksgiving Weekend at the Calgary Curling Club in Calgary, Alberta. It was the first Grand Slam event of the season from 2006 to 2014, but is no longer considered one of the official Grand Slams. The first Autumn Gold Classic was held in 1978, and at the time only had a total purse of $5,000. Since 2013, the total prize money given out has been $50,000. The winning team received $14,000.
