Warren Hansen

2016 Curling Builder, Edmonton

Warren Hansen made a lasting impact and brought forth many initiatives in his 40 year career. Warren worked with Ray Kingsmith in 1983, to bring curling to the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympic Games as a demonstrative sport. In 1974, he fought for the CCA to allow curlers to practice on the same sheet of ice they would be playing on. He brought in the Page Playoff System, an officiating system, statistics system and mixed doubles curling. In 1986, he became Director of Event Operations for the CCA and helped create the Canada Cup, the Continental Cup, and the Season of Champions concept.
