I'll be heading up the road tomorrow to Greenacres, which this week plays host to the first European Senior Invitation Curling Championships, featuring both men’s and women’s teams.
The event for the over-50s has attracted entries from Norway, Hungary, Iceland, Poland, Estonia, Finland, Sweden and the Netherlands as well as teams from Scotland, England, Ireland and Wales. It has been part funded by the legacy from the financially successful World events held at the Lagoon and Greenacres in 2005.
As we previewed before (here) the reigning Scottish Women’s Senior Champions and World Silver Medallists skipped by Kirsty Letton and the Men's Champions skipped by Graeme Adam are in the draw.
First games are at 08.30 on Wednesday morning with the finals scheduled for 14.30 on Saturday. Check out this link where the organisers hope to be posting results.
