Oslo, Thursday, September 23

Two Scottish men's teams, and one woman's team, are in the draws for the Radisson Blu Oslo Cup, which begins today at the Snarøyahallen, Oslo. Hammy McMillan and David Murdoch play in different sections of the men's Curling Champions Tour competition. The organisers have not managed to attract a full twenty team entry. Eighteen teams line up in three sections this year.

There are sixteen teams in the women's competition, one section of six, two of five. Eve Muirhead will compete with her junior team of Anna Sloan, Vicki Adams and Rhiann Macleod in this event. 

There is live streaming of the games, see here, and also here, with Kenny Edwards behind the mike. The results will be on the Curlingkanalen site.

Let's not forget the event highlight, Rudolph's Party, which takes place this evening. Guests will be treated to 'Lapplandish reindeer and Norwegian aquavit'. (That's just caused me to have a 'Bambi' moment!)
