The penultimate Scottish Curling Tour event takes place at Curl Aberdeen, 5th – 7th February. The Accord Aberdeen City Open could be a turning point for the tour leader board, the top three teams – Mouat, Hardie and Bryce – aren’t taking part, which gives Team Macleod and Team MacDonald a great opportunity to try and catch up.
There are 20 teams taking part in the competition, split into two sections of 10 teams. Games begin at 12:30pm on Friday with the final scheduled at 3pm on Sunday 7th February. A dinner and race night are held on the Saturday night.
