Have you ever wanted to curl in Canada? Have you ever hoped that you could visit the Eastern Maritime Provinces with a group of dedicated and entertaining curlers from around the United States? Here is your chance!
The United States Curling Association and Curling Canada are joining forces to establish a men’s curling exchange modeled on the very popular and successful Scot Tour. The Scot Tour was begun in 1952 and has been played every five years since, alternating between the USA and Scotland. To a man, Scot Tour participants from both sides of the Atlantic rave about their experiences – Friendships made and renewed, keen competition on fine curling ice, superb food, single malts, hops, and, of course, unexcelled camaraderie. Nightly banquets along with both hotel and local homestays add to the allure of the Scot Tour. We hope, with your participation to create a similar tradition with the Can-Am Cup Tour.
The Can-Am Cup Tour is planned to begin in November 2019 with a group of 20 American curlers traveling to four Canadian Maritime Provinces – Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island – and curling local teams from twenty curling clubs. Like the Scot Tour, the Can-Am Cup Tour will represent the best in American curling – fine curlers, gentlemen, comrades, and ambassadors.
Team selection will be made in the fall of 2018 by members of the organizing committee. Selectees will be evaluated on the following criteria:
