The Scots are Coming to Blue Water Curling Club
January 14 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Scottish men curlers are coming to Blue Water Curling Club on Saturday, January 14 for a set of friendly curling matches that are part of the Canada-Scotland Strathcona Cup bonspiel.
After morning contests at the Mount Forest Curling Club, the Scottish teams will arrive in Owen Sound and be piped onto the ice for four games against Blue Water curlers at 3:00 p.m., followed by dinner at the Club. Supper is generously sponsored by Bill Graham, owner of our local Foodland; and wine from Coffin Ridge and beer from Hurry Hard will keep us lubricated.
During and after dinner outstanding musicians, Larry Jensen and Tim Harrison, will provide entertainment. Mayor Ian Boddy has agreed to formally welcome the Scots and kick off the Owen Sound games.
The Strathcona Cup, with a storied history over 110 years, features local curlers across Canada and Scotland in friendly matches, with the winner of the bonspiel determined by aggregate scores. This year, more than 1700 Canadians will participate in 437 games in 105 different Clubs across Canada from January 10 to 31. In short, we’re proud to be part of what is truly a big deal!
