  1. Fantastic result fellow tourist and you have done Scottish curling proud by bringing the Strathcona Cup back to this side of the pond so that we have the bragging rights. Enjoy getting your photograph taken with the actual cup in Scotland and keep the celebrations and morning class going – for medicinal purposes only of course!!!!!!!

    Very well done to a Strathcona Cup winner,

    Cheers, Bill.

    • Many thanks for your kind comments. We have arrived back from our ‘endurance test’, tired but trimphant! Great memories of everywhere, but especially of Thunder Bay and Port Arthur. Great to have played against you. Hope your son is doing well in his junior competitions.


  2. Just to say Thanks for the Immortal Memory you gave at the Westman Scottish Association Burns Supper in Brandon last night. It was “just right” Great to meet you & the tour members. All the best for the remainder of the tour!

    I’m glad you are having a great time and enjoying yourself . It’s pretty heavy going but you’ll survive. Just take plenty water with it !!!

    • Competition quite severe today, in Lloydminster. Suggestion they brought in at least one ringer! Temperature -29, with wind chill down to -41.


    • Great to hear from you. Being worked hard. Getting good results. Taking lots of water as you advised. Traveling many miles with many more to come.


    • Thanks, George for your contact. I knew you would be following our progress. We really are on the go all the time. Great curling venues and competition. Some silly mistakes by everyone, but overall the Scots are well up.

      Please let Evie know I am OK, having to go to bed earlier than my roommate because he snores. So do I but if can get off to sleep before him, I am OK!
