This year, Canada plays host to the world’s oldest international men’s curling bonspiel, the “Strathcona Cup”. This month-long curling bonspiel brings together 60 male curlers from Scotland to play against Canadians in curling centres across Canada.
The competition comprises three distinct tours (western, central and eastern Canada). Now in its 120th year, the next Strathcona Cup will be competed for in January 2023. The 2023 Strathcona Cup western tour (comprising 20 curlers – five teams) will begin in Vancouver on January 11, 2023 and pass through the B.C. interior before moving on to Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and winding up in Ottawa.
The Sutherland Curling Club (SCC) has accepted the Saskatchewan Strathcona Cup organizing committee’s invitation to host the Scottish curlers during their stop in Saskatoon from January 26-27.
We invite all SCC members to join us for the day. The schedule will be as follows:
Just before first Draw: Opening Ceremonies featuring Bagpipes and Ceremonial First Rock Toss
9:30 AM – First Draw
1:00 PM – Second Draw
