The Scottish Mixed Doubles Championship will be held at Murrayfield, December 19-21. Only thirteen teams have entered for the event. Last year there were twenty-two teams. Royal Caledonian Curling Club Competitions manager Colin Hamilton hopes that he can reach at least sixteen teams for the coming season's event. He has extended the closing date until the end of August. An entry form can be downloaded here, or contact Cairnie House.
The winners of the Scottish Mixed Doubles will compete in the World Mixed Doubles Championship, April 18-26, 2009 (according to the WCF website), or April 17-25, 2009 (according to the RCCC's competitions calendar). The World event will be in Cortina, Italy, as noted here.
