The 2013 Edinburgh International Curling Championship will take place this year between 8th and 10th November 2013 –again to accommodate the earlier running of the European Curling Championships.
The Organising Committee have already met on a number of occasions, so plans are well underway. Most of the top Scottish teams entered the competition and there was a strong-looking field from Europe as well. The competition shaped up to be a competitive highlight of the Champions Tour season. The defending champions Team Brewster returned with Dave Murdoch at the helm, but were unfortunately knocked out at the quarter final stages by Team McLeary. This left the stage wide open for a number of the remaining teams to fight it out for top spot. Our overall winners for 2013 were Team Edwards. Full details of the finals can be found in our news section
The senior competitions are also looking good. The organising committee decided to continue running separate men and ladies competitions again this year and I am pleased to report that both are almost fully-subscribed! We have decided to give these two increasingly important Scottish senior competitions the weekend slot that they deserve. They will be played during the weekend of 22 – 24 November and I fully expect some great curling throughout the weekend. We have a team coming from the USA and many others from the home nations.
We look forward to giving you a warm welcome to Scotland’s Capital City in November.
