Strathcona Cup: Russell Curling Club chosen


RUSSELL | The recently expanded Russell Curling Club has been chosen as part of the historic Strathcona Cup tour and will be visited by five teams from Scotland on Saturday, January 12. The custom of the Cup began in 1902, and every five years Scottish and Canadian curlers meet in Canada or Scotland to de- termine the historic cup’s winner. In 2009 Canada won the cup in Scotland, and Em- brun resident Jim Campbell was one of the curlers who went on that tour. Now the Scots are coming to Canada with 60 players. Twenty curlers will compete in each of the three tours (East, West and Cen- tral). The Russell Curling Club members are very excited about this upcoming special event and encourage members and non- members alike to watch the tournament, which begins at 2 p.m. Admission to the games is free.

The Strathcona Cup is one of the world’s oldest international curling competitions and the championship team is determined by cumulative results of all games played. This year there will be 434 games in over 100 clubs. Canada has won 11 times and Scotland has won nine times.
