Pete Loudon writes, "I am pleased to announce that the Perth Masters Bonspiel will now be know as the Mercure Perth Masters and the newly named event will go ahead January 5-8, 2012.
Finding and keeping a major sporting event sponsor is a challenging business, especially in these tough economic times. However I am very pleased that we are able to continue to work closely with the management team and staff at the Mercure Perth Hotel to ensure the longest standing event on the Champions Curling Tour will go ahead as planned in January.
We have developed an excellent working relationship not only with the key people at Mercure but also across all our other supporting sponsors and through the hard work and effort of our committee and the staff at Dewar's Centre we are determined to deliver another top class event for curling fans.
The new company which operates the hotel (formerly the Ramada Jarvis) is Jupiter hotels. More information can be found here."
The Perth Masters is a competition in the Curling Champions Tour.
