I’m on holiday in Spain just now so excuse the lack of regular content for the next couple of weeks – I’ll do what I can.
Team Murdoch were playing in the Shorty Jenkins Classic in Brockville, Ontario from 19-22 of this month.
With names like Edin, Fenson, Gushue, Howard, Martin and Stoughton in the lineup this was always going to be a tough event and the Scots came away with one win and four losses.
The event was won by Canada’s Brad Jacobs – the full results are here.
Team Muirhead were playing in the women’s draw at the same event and picked up three wins and two losses meaning they just missed out on the playoffs.
Mirjam Ott of Switzerland won the event – all the scores are here.
While not a World Curling Tour event, Logan Gray and Kerry Barr were in Beijing, China this week for the 2013 China Open.

Logan and his team picked up four wins and three losses but ultimately lost in the bronze game against Norway’s Thomas Ulsrud – a great effort.
Canada’s Mike McEwen won the event – scores are all here.
The first leg of the women’s Curling Champions Tour took place in Sweden with the Stockholm Ladies’ Curling Cup.

Hannah made the quarter-finals winning three and losing three while Lorna and her team missed out on the playoffs, winning two and losing four.
Switzerland’s Silvana Tirinzoni won the event – the website is here.
The junior version of the tour made its first stop of the season at Braehead for the Braehead Junior International where I am delighted to report that two Scottish teams came out on top.
Many congratulations to both teams and thanks to Tom Brydone for the pictures – all the results from Braehead are here.
And finally, the first stop on this season’s Scottish Curling Tour was the Ice Bowl Open at Dumfries.
For the first time, an SCT event was won by an overseas team – Martin Lill of Estonia.
