Scotland Welcomes Canadian Curlers
From Inverness in the north to Dumfries in the south and from Ayr in the west to Aberdeen in the east and all ice rinks in between the Canadians are coming!
This month sees Scottish and Canadian curlers once more competing for the coveted Strathcona Cup which is the grandest and likely the most valuable trophy in curling, having been contested for every 5 years since 1903.
Scotland are defending champions having won the challenge back in 2013, this month they will face a tough Canadian team who will be doing their very best to wrest the trophy back this time around.
The tour kicks off on Thursday 11th January with games at Hamilton before one group of 20 Canadians head north to Perth and onwards to Inverness and Elgin while the other group play in Glasgow, Greenock and Ayr. The two parts of the tour continue around the country before they come together again in Edinburgh on 2nd February.
The event has already attracted a few celebrity fans with The Lord Provost of Edinburgh now set to throw the first stone to start the closing stages of the historic curling competition.
