Pacific International Cup starts...
The 15th annual Pacific International Cup gets started at the Richmond Curling Centre today (April 16). The ;'PIC;rdquo; is a unique and popular curling event which has as its mission to promote club curling within and outside of British Columbia. It is the only event which provides club curlers with international competition, while exchanging ideas, ideals and promoting the sport of curling. Since it began in 2000, club curlers from 21 different countries, territories, provinces and states have participated in the Pacific International Cup. In B.C. and most other jurisdictions facilities identify their best men's and women's club teams, who then play in qualifying events such as the BC Club Challenge to play in the PIC. This year's competition will include men's and women's teams from Alaska,...
THE CURLING SHOW:
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.
COACH BILL:
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...
BOB WEEKS ON CURLING:
...
It has certainly been a busy spring in the player movement front, hasn't it?Teams changing, players retiring, moving vans hired . . . and so far there doesn't seem to be too much in the way of bad bloodThe latest news came in a Tweet from Paul Wiecek concerning Jeff Stoughton.Breaking -- Jeff Stoughton putting finishing touches on a new team with 3rd Rob Fowler, 2nd Alex Forrest and lead Connor Njegovan. #bnâ€;quot; Paul Wiecek (@PaulWiecek) April 16, 2014It's my understanding that of the top 15 men's teams, only two will not have any sort of change. I believe those would be the rinks skipped by Brad Jacobs and Mike McEwen. Anyone know any differently?The women's side isn't much different. In fact, there are so many changes the CCA released a notice saying that...

THE CURLING NEWS BLOG:
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...

Weekend Roundup 4-6 April
I can only apologise for the lack of content of late – things are busy just now despite the season coming to a close. My last post was heading into the final weekend of the World Men's and I was on my way to Elgin to play in the Moray International. This weekend, I am south of the border to attend the English Curling Association's AGM so I will try and keep you updated where I can. Anyway, back to last weekend. The World Men's Curling Championship came to an end in Beijing, China on Sunday and here are some pictures of the medal winners: 2014 World Men's Curling Champions – Norway (L-R): Thomas Ulsrud (Skip), Torger NergÃ¥rd (Third), Christoffer Svae (Second), HÃ¥vard Vad Petersson (Lead), Markus Snøve Høiberg (Alternate), PÃ¥l Trulsen (Coach) Norway saw off Sweden in...
BEHIND THE GLASS:
In Defence of the Scottish
Actually, it all started with a miss by one of the five against the other four.;nbsp; Otherwise the four would never have become five and, I suspect, we would have had a different team at the recent Winter Olympics.;nbsp; Confused?;nbsp; Let me explain.It is February 2011 at Perth ice rink and the Scottish Championship is approaching its denouement.;nbsp; In the semi-final, Tom Brewster is skipping a team of young hopefuls - a couple of whom wore the same kind of scars as their more experienced skip had in abundance.;nbsp; Both Greg Drummond and Michael Goodfellow had recently aged out without winning the Scottish Junior Championship.;nbsp; Their last chance had been against the Ally Fraser team, with Greg's brother, Kerr at lead.;nbsp; Anyhow.;nbsp; Back to the semi-final; Tom and company...
