Russell welcomes Scottish curling teams

Mayor Pierre Leroux of Russell Township has sent out a press release notifying residents that five Scottish curling teams will be visiting the township to compete in the Strathcona Cup next week. The world’s oldest international men’s curling bonspiel, the Strathcona Cup lasts an entire month and takes place once every five years.

This year’s bonspiel brings 60 curlers from Scotland to play against Canadians in curling centres across Canada. The Russell Curling Club was chosen to host Game 28, which will be played on January 31.

“It is an incredible honour for our community to be part of this prestigious international tradition,” said Leroux in his email release. “I want to extend a warm welcome our international guests. It is a pleasure to have you here for this wonderful event.”
