Curl Aberdeen is set to stage a new open competition next season, the Aberdeen City Open, February 4-6, 2011.
The competition comes about as a result of the success of the Le Gruyere European Championships last December, and the good relationship between Aberdeen City Council and the local organising committee. The A Division was held in the Council owned Linx Arena, and the B Divisions in Curl Aberdeen. The Council has donated a trophy in recognition of the success of the Euro event.
Manager Tom Brewster is looking for twenty-four teams. The competition will be open to any four curlers. Tom says, "We hope to finalise details by the end of July and have the invites out for sometime in August. It should be a fun weekend with some great prizes."
The dates for the Aberdeen City Open sit comfortably in the competitions calendar just before the Scottish Seniors and Scottish Championships get underway. Curl Aberdeen will also host the Scottish Junior Championships in January.
