similar to the United States Women’s Curling Association Canada Friendship Tour hosted by the USWCA, and the long standing men’s and women’s Scot Tours. T e Scot Tour was begun in 1952 and has been played every fi ve years since, alternating between the USA and Scotland. To a man, Scot Tour participants from both sides of the Atlantic rave about their experiences – friendships made and renewed, keen competi- tion on fi ne curling ice, superb food, single malts, hops, and, of course, unexcelled camaraderie.

vember, and like the Scot Tour, the Can-Am Cup Tour will represent the best in American curling – fi ne curlers, gentlemen, comrades, and ambas- sadors. Team selection will be made in the fall of 2018
