Men’s Tour to USA 2017 deadline 30th October

Posted on Wednesday, October 28, 2015 at 9:00am

The Royal Caledonian Curling Club organises a number of friendship tours and in 2017, the United States Curling Association has extended an invitation for twenty male curlers to tour the USA as their guests for three weeks from 15th January to 5th February 2017.

The touring party will enjoy a full programme of activities on and off the ice and compete for the coveted Herries Maxwell trophy which is played for between Scotland and the USA on a five year cycle. The last Tour was in 2012 when the USA visited Scotland and claimed the trophy after 35 matches and some 147 games of curling.

All male members of the RCCC, who have not already been on either a Canadian or American tour, are eligible to apply for a place on this tour.

The deadline for applications is the 30th October 2015.

Based on the cost of the Strathcona Cup Tour to Canada in 2013 we recommend that you budget approximately £5,000 for this tour.
