Eve Muirhead’s Performance Squad team of Anna Sloan, Vicki Adams and Claire Hamilton will be competing at the 2012 Rogers Masters in Brantford, Ontario which gets underway on Thursday 15th November. In the Women’s event 34 teams will be taking part with Muirhead’s first game at 9:00am against Calgary Alberta’s Team Kleibrink. The event runs until Monday 19th November.
This weekend, members of the 2003 Strathcona Cup Tour (Scotland to Canada) are coming together again and on Friday, 48 of the 53 tourists still with us, hold their Annual Re-union at Dewars Rinks in Perth, where they will initially take to ice in a fun Bonspiel. This will be followed by a draw to the wooden bottle on the pot lid, which gives the victor the opportunity to toast absent friends at the Dinner later that evening. The tourists then adjourn to the Mercure Perth Hotel where they will enjoy great camaraderie at the Annual Tour Dinner. After the meal, the tourists will while away the night, recounting stories of games all across Canada, won and lost during their trip of a lifetime, and also partaking of a few refreshments.
After a few hours sleep, these same worthy souls will be back on the ice at Dewars Centre, to lock horns with the 2013 outgoing Scotland to Canada Strathcona Cup Tour. Teams from the 2013 West and Central Tours will match up against the 2003 West tourists, whilst after a lunch, the 2013 East and remaining Central tourists, will curl against the 2003 East Tour. There is no trophy at stake, but bragging rights are there to be established.
