2017 Scots Tour – January 23, 2017

The US and Scotland have been participating in a “tour” of each others countries since 1952, and on January 23, 2017 – twenty Scottish curlers will be arriving at Curl Mesabi to continue this grand tradition!

These visits rotate between the countries on a five year basis, with the Scottish men last visiting the USA and Curl Mesabi in 2007.  Our Club will welcome these honored guests and compete against them twice – 2:00 p.m. on Monday, January 23rd and 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday, January 24th.

The Scottish team will attempt to win a points competition for the cherished Herries Maxwell Trophy, which was brought back to the USA by the our teams touring Scotland in 2012.  A total of 13 competitions have been held, with the Scotts winning the first six and the USA winning six of the last seven.
Total points for the event (all years) are: Scotland – 10,472 / USA – 10,397.
