Earle Morris returns to coach son's...
Team Morris named Earle Morris as the rink's coach for the upcoming season. Morris is the father of skip John Morris, who joined reigning Brier champions Pat Simmons, Carter Rycroft and Nolan Thiessen during the off-season after Kevin Koe parted ways with the trio. Earle Morris coached his son to Canadian junior championships in 1998 and 1999 and recently helped guide Rachel Homan's team to consecutive Scotties titles in 2013 and 2014. He also served as the coach for Australia's national team from 2006-08. Morris played in three Brier tournaments (1980, 1982 and 1985) for three different provinces. “Even though Earle was planning on spending next season away from the competitive curling scene, the chance to coach his son, along with our relaxed schedule for this season was too enticing...

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...

PLAYDOWNS:
Vernon puts WCT spin on junior...
Junior curlers will get the chance to play like the country's top curlers if they take part in a junior cashspiel in Vernon in November. The event, which is being organized by Brier regular Jim Cotter, will take place at the Vernon Curling Club from November 14-16. A cash purse of $10,000 will be available to the players. The event will be run like a provincial/national event with a draw to button to help determine tie-breakers. World Curling Tour Slam Event rules for tie breakers will be used, which means no team will be eliminated on tie-breakers unless we get into a 1-3 type scenario then teams can be eliminated with a sub-500 records. Teams with 500 or better record will either go directly into playoffs with the top draw to the button or a tie breaker game will be required. Organizer...

What Are You Thinking?
The golf of world was treated to a wonderful performance at the recent "British Open Championship" played at Royal Liverpool G;amp;CC at Hoy Lake. The wire-to-wire winner was Northern Ireland's 25 year old Rory McIroy who established, what turned out to be, an insurmountable six shot lead going into the fourth and final round at the the links course, about 15 km. from that cavern in downtown Liverpool were four floppy haired lads turned the popular music world upside down in the 1960's. Although he was challenged by Spain's Sergio Carcia who climbed to within two shots at one point in the final round, the result was really never in doubt. It was, to say the least, a remarkable performance! It puts him a Masters "green jacket" away from the career "Grand...

Stirling Summer Skins 2014
When it comes to the sporting summer, curling probably hasn't been on our minds of late what with the FIFA World Cup, the Wimbledon Championships and an upcoming Commonwealth Games to demand our attention. I think it's time to remind everyone that curling should always be on our minds! It certainly was on my recent trip to the USA where I was fortunate enough to visit one of the three locations to have hosted a Winter Olympics in the nation. I'll give you a big clue – Great Britain won curling gold there in 2002... But enough about my summer travels (I'm currently in Norway again by the way), let's talk about the Stirling Summer Skins. If you aren't familiar with this event then take a look at my roundup from last season here. Logan Gray, who does a great job organising the event each...
