The 33rd edition of the Canada/Scotland Rotary Curling Tour has just passed through our area. The tour, which is 60 years old competes for a series of trophies, alternating sides of the Atlantic every two years. Hosted in this area by our club and the Rotary club of West Ottawa, the Scottish team and their hosts began with a Rotary luncheon meeting with West Ottawa.
From there the team proceeded to the Hunt Club for a match against a Canadian squad. For the total score on 5 sheets, Canada emerged a point ahead.
The following day included tours of the Aviation museum and Parliament. Our guests were treated to a pot luck supper at Rotarian Bruce's with entertainment provided by both groups.
From here the group left for Kingston to continue the tour through central and southern Ontario. The tour is 29 days and is a test of skill and stamina.
