Chances are this will be my final post of 2012 but you never know…
The latest U17 Slam finished this afternoon at Forfar. The High Road final was a close affair – David Baird took it 7-6 against Robin Brydone while the Low Road was won by Neil Sutherland, 8-4 over Callum MacFarlane.
Thanks to Tom Brydone for the winners’ picture.
Looking ahead to 2013, the first big event is undoubtedly the Mercure Perth Masters.
I will have a preview of the event come the New Year and I am hoping to make it to Perth as well to watch some of the world’s best teams in action.
In the meantime, I received this information from Pete Loudon, Chairman of the Organising Committee, today:
With less than a week to go until the first round of games get underway at Dewars Centre, Perth we can look forward to many exciting matches over the four days of curling. Thirty-two teams from thirteen different countries will gather to enjoy what is generally regarded as the best curling ice conditions in the UK, thirty one of them will try and stop Team McEwen from Manitoba, Canada making it a hat trick of victories!
It is the 20th anniversary of the resurrection of ‘The Masters’ with the main sponsor The Mercure City Mills Hotel, Perth for all these years. The excellent partnership between the committee and the hotel continues to provide the cornerstone for this great curling spectacle.
In addition to the main sponsor, thanks go to Perth Honda, Perth & Kinross Council and Live Active Leisure for their continued support.
Follow the action at www.perthmasters.com as well as via Facebook/Twitter and the Perth Masters iPhone/iPad app.
Thanks to Pete for the information.
Before we say goodbye to 2012, I will be at Kinross for the Hogmanay Pairs this weekend so do come and say hello if you are around – I would love to hear any ideas for New Year’s blog resolutions for 2013…
