Why I wanted to be part of the curling tour:
I took up curling when I was 12 and continued to curl throughout my junior and university careers. While moderately successful as a curler I have taken a huge amount of joy and satisfaction from the comradery of playing in many teams and partaking in the social aspects of curling competitions. On leaving University, I along with 3 friends formed the Barbarians Curling Club with the view of continuing many of the University curling traditions and particularly the social aspects. Almost every year since forming, the club has sent at least one team to take part in an away curling competition, either in Europe or Scotland, many of which I have been part of. I became aware of the Canadian Curling Tour early on in my curling career and have learned more about them from several previous participants. I know that playing in the Canadian tour is probably going to be the highlight of my curling career and look forward to doing it while young and fit enough to fully embrace the opportunities.
Apart form curling, which takes up much of my winter time, I also take part in a number of other outdoor activities including cycling and walking during the summer and skiing in the
winter. Recently I have taken up Stand-up paddle boarding and canoeing.
