Swiss tour in November 2014.
Plans for the incoming men’s Swiss Tour are well underway. The Swiss jet into Scotland on Friday 7th November.
They start off at Kinross against 2009 Swiss Tour squad, then proceed around the country in a clockwise fashion taking in most ice rinks and all R C C C areas.
They will have a couple of free days to rest and enjoy all that Scotland has to offer, as well as recuperating from the previous night’s glasses of hospitality. It can be quite a spectacle to see their musicians and yodeller perform, so any curlers who aren’t playing against them are very welcome to go down to your local ice rink to watch and socialise with them before, during and after the games.
The final match against The Royal Caledonian Curling Club is at Murrayfield on Thursday 20th November followed by the closing dinner,
after which the tourists will be thinking about an early morning flight back home, tired but no doubt full of happy memories.
Thanks in advance to everyone for playing your part in this hospitality and in particular to our couriers Joe Barry & George Delgaty for taking a
week out to guide the Swiss around Scotland.

Unfortunately President Mike could not pull a single Moray Province team together in the end relying on a neighboring Province to supply a fourth member. Thanks to them.
