RCCC Ladies tours of Canada take place every ten years.
As part of their build up a practice day was organised at Hamilton on Saturday 19th September. Since many of the ladies were travelling a distance and staying over it was decided to invite all lady curlers who had taken part in any tour to play in a Charity Bonspiel the following day.
Marion Craig, who was Vice-Captain of the 2005 Scottish Ladies Tour to Eastern Canada was given the unenviable task of organising the event.
Altogether 80 ladies took part split into two sections, each playing three 5 end games.

Welcome, fellow curlers to the 2015/16 season. I am looking forward to meeting as many present and new members as I can over the season. We have a fantastic facility here at the Lanarkshire Ice Rink and with a busy schedule of competitions, I would encourage members to support their ice rink and participate if at all possible. New members will be made most welcome and all abilities and ages are well catered for with young curlers, ladies curling, wheelchair curlers, beginner starter sessions, and coaching sessions held regularly throughout the season. Finally, we are looking for members to bring fresh impetus to the Ice Rink committees, if anyone is interested please get in touch. Good curling! John
