  1. Ian,
    First congrats on your group’s curling accomplishments!
    My name is Randy Keron from London Ontario Canada. I am taking a stab at tracking down some relatives and see if I can fill in the family tree a bit more.
    This is not the proper forum to discuss this but I would love to share some research with you in the hopes that you and/or family can fill in some blanks. My grandfather was born in Muthill around 1889. Leaving raw email addresses in blogs is not the best idea so I will say in words if that is not too cryptic. My address is rkeron AT gmail DOT com
    Thanks in advance,

    • Randy,
      Thanks for getting in touch.
      I will dig out what records I have for family Keron, given the few of us around the Perth area I suspect we will have some common ground.
      I will be in touch shortly.

  2. 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.
