David Edwards is to be the alternate for the Tom Brewster team at the World Men's Curling Championship, March 31 - April 8, in Basel, Switzerland. Edwards had the same role for the David Murdoch team at the Le Gruyere European Championships in Moscow in December. Would you have guessed who has been chosen to be the alternate for the Eve Muirhead team at the Ford World Women's Curling Championship in Lethbridge, Alberta, March 17-25?
Kelly Wood, currently resident in Canada, is the choice. Kelly of course most recently played with Eve at the 2010 Olympics in 2010, and later that year won silver at the Worlds and Europeans.
