Why I wanted to be part of the curling tour:

It has always been an ambition of mine since I started curling to take part in the Strathcona Cup. Some of my curling colleagues were on the 2003 Strathcona Cup tour and I have heard numerous stories, (although probably not all of them) which made me all the more determined to take part in this tour. Now I have the time to go since I have retired and (hopefully) the knee’s and joints will still be able to cope with this experience, this is the perfect time for me to go.

Curling for me is not just about the game itself but is also about meeting in the bar afterward to chat and have a few drinks.
