SCT Roundup / Moray Intl. Bonspiel

So that’s the Scottish Curling Tour over for the season. The final event on the tour was being played this weekend – the Petrofac Aberdeen City Open.

The event was won for a second consecutive year by Team Brewster. They beat Jaap van Dorp’s Dutch team 4-2 in Sunday’s final. You can read a report on the final stages here.

The overall tour title went to Team Edwards – congratulations to David Edwards and his team of John Penny, Scott Macleod and Colin Campbell. Read a review of how the tour panned out for 2012/13 here. The final standings for the season are here.

Pictures and all the scores from Aberdeen are available here.

Don’t forget that the Canadian Junior Curling Championships are running all this week with the finals on Sunday. The event website is here and read about how one Arthur Siksik made history on Saturday here.

Kirsty Harrison has been in touch with details of an event that takes place in early April, the Moray International Bonspiel:

The Moray International Bonspiel will take place in Elgin on 6-7 April 2013. This event was started out by Andy Cameron, a keen curler, and this will be the fifth year that the event has taken place.

2013 sees all 20 team places taken with curlers attending from Scotland, England, Wales, Spain, Norway, Switzerland, and Finland.

This year sees four group games for each section of 10 teams, and a final high road and low road game playing for the two trophies, and fighting for the all important wooden spoon!

Full details can be found on Facebook (2013 Moray International Bonspiel event and also a group) and at www.morayinternationalbonspiel.com

We are hoping that the event will go from strength to strength and in future years be held over three days or more.
