The weekend in prospect

I'll be keeping my eyes on five different competitions this weekend:

1. Eve Muirhead, Kelly Wood, Lorna Vevers and Annie Laird, the World silver medallists, will be competing in Canada at the 2010 Curlers Corner Autumn Gold Curling Classic in Calgary, Alberta. This is a thirty-two team triple knockout, with eight teams qualifying for quarterfinals. The Asham World Curling Tour event kicks off at 09.00 Mountain Time, tomorrow, Friday. The first round draw is here, and linescores will be here.

2. Gail Munro, Lyndsay Wilson, Kerry Adams-Taylor and Alison Mather are the only Scottish team in the draw for the RE/MAX Women's Masters in Arlesheim, Basel. This is a twenty-four team triple knockout Curling Champions Tour event. The draw can be downloaded from here, and there will be live results here. Again, will be webcasting some games.

3. Stranraer hosts the Royal Caledonian Curling Club's Senior Mixed Championship. Eighteen teams compete in four sections. The draw and results can be accessed from this page.

4. Forfar's relaunched Forfar Open is on the 'watch list' too. The draw and results are here.

5. Last but not least, there's a full twenty-four team entry for the Kinross Junior Masters.

I guess the season is well underway! Look out for Kay Adams' weekend preview on the Royal Club website here.
