Kaitlyn Lawes, playing Third for...
She's been on the ice since she was a five-year-old and in the spotlight since her days as a top junior skip. I talked to Kaitlyn back in December, shortly after her team had earned the right to be Team Canada at the Sochi Games. Even if you don't curl like an Olympian, there's no reason you shouldn't look like you really know what you're doing. Give your team the trappings of the best with Runback curling apparel â€;quot; go to Runback and find custom curling apparel for your squad. Just Run It.

Morris announces curling sabbatical...
No Mo Johnny... unless... John Morris has spoken. The finalist from both the Brier and the Canadian Olympic Trials has issued a statement today on his immediate curling future, and here it is: This ad appears in our April issue After a lot of thought and deliberation, I have decided to take a step back from the game of curling next year. I had the tremendous pleasure of playing with three great, genuine teammates in Jim Cotter, Tyrel Griffith and Rick Sawatsky as we made it farther than I think anyone would have predicted for a team playing its first year together. You were all amazing, as was our coach, Pat Ryan, and our alternates Jody Epp and Jason Gunnlaugson. I am extremely proud of our squad for what we accomplished, and would like to thank my guys for helping me recover my passion and...

Morris to skip Team Canada, Bailey...
Yup. Just a few weeks after announcing he was going to take the year off, Johnny Mo is back. In a release from the CCA, Morris said has agreed to skip the three remaining Team Canada players although the schedule will be quite limited.;nbsp;"My plan was to take the 2014-15 season off as I move ahead in my career as a firefighter," said Morris, a resident of Chestermere, Alta., just outside of Calgary. "But to be able to play for Team Canada, and considering the Alberta events are so close to home, it was hard to pass up on this offer. I talked it over with Jim, Tyrel and Rick and they were very understanding. I can't thank them enough for the season we had, and I wish them nothing but the very best going forward."As well, Carter Rycroft will be appearing in a limited...
Canadian teams set for World Mixed...
Three more medal opportunities will be on the line when Canadian teams open play on Wednesday at the 2014 World Senior Men's, Senior Women's and Mixed Doubles Championships at the Dumfries Ice Bowl in Dumfries, Scotland. Colleen Pinkney's team from Truro, N.S. (third Wendy Currie, second Shelley MacNutt, lead Susan Creelman) will be looking for Canada's 10th World Senior Women's Curling Championship. (Photo, Canadian Curling Association) The Canadian entries will be looking to defend the gold medals our country won at the 2013 World Senior Men's and Women's Championships in Fredericton, N.B., while our mixed doubles entry will be looking for just our second medal in the seven-year history of the event. In senior women's play, Colleen Pinkney's team from Truro, N.S., (third Wendy Currie,...
Scotland On Tour
With the 2013-14 season almost over, the final tour events on the curling calendar have been played over the past few weeks. Several Scottish teams have been taking part both in Europe and further afield. St. Gallen, Switzerland was hosting the final event on the Curling Champions Tour from 9-12 April with the European Masters. This event saw the teams ranked in the top eight of the Tour standings play for the overall Tour title – Sweden, Scotland and Switzerland were all represented. Scotland had teams skipped by Logan Gray and David Murdoch out in Switzerland. Glen Muirhead was replaced by Grant Hardie in Team Gray's lineup for this competition. Olympic silver-medallists Team Murdoch won their first game but then lost three straight, including a defeat to Logan Gray, but they won their...
Curling Connections
The Dumfries Museum was founded in 1835 as an astronomical observatory and museum in a stone windmill built about 1790 on Corberry Hill. A Camera Obscura in the tower is still a popular attraction. The main hall of the museum was built in 1862 and houses collections from all over Dumfries and Galloway.The museum is worth a visit at any time, but from today until June 15, there is a special exhibition, 'Curling Connections', celebrating that Dumfries Ice Bowl is the venue for the World Seniors and the World Mixed Doubles Curling Championships. The exhibition examines the social importance of curling and reveals the contribution to the development of the sport made by the people of Dumfries and Galloway.As well as local items, some of the rarest artifacts from the history of the sport...
The 2016 USA curling championships...
Yep, there it is on the USCA website. We're going to have a curling championship in Florida. This is apparently something they've been working on for a few years, trying to get some niche interests into the region.Currently there are zero active curling clubs in Florida â€;quot; the closest one is Atlanta â€;quot; but there used to be one in the Tampa area. This is certainly part of their attempt to expand curling interest into states with pretty super awesome winters, such as the Continental Cup in Las Vegas and the clinic in Hawaii last year. They haven't announced the facility but it'll probably be the Jacksonville Ice ;amp; SportsPlex, and with any luck they can also start a recreational curling club there, similar to what Kalamazoo did â€;quot; they founded a club in 2008 and hosting...
Proceed With Caution
It's not only that time of year, it's that time in the Olympic quadrennial and when it happens with the most high profile teams, it gets played out in the media for all to see. Of course I'm taking about player personnel changes.But, to be quite frank, I'm not that concerned about the elite teams and what they do re. player changes, they're big boys and girls so I'll defer to their experience in matters like this. No, this is directed at you, the serious recreational curler who might be contemplating a change in team personnel.What follows are my thoughts on this most important issue but permit me one observation on what's happening literally as I publish this post. I'll not delve into the specifics of the teams who have announced changes although I will...
