Cheering for Carolyn

It was in 2007 that Carolyn Morris won her fourth Scottish Senior Championship title with her team of Margaret Robertson, Trudie Milne and Linda Lesperance. Carolyn already had won world gold (in 2005) and silver (in 2003) as skip of Scottish teams. It was Scottish curling's loss when she relocated back to Canada.

Gone, but not forgotten. Many who remember Carolyn will already know that she's competing for Alberta this week, as third in the Cathy King team, in the Canadian Senior Championship in Abbotsford, British Columbia. Twelve men’s and twelve women’s teams have competed in the national championships this week, the first place teams advancing directly to Sunday’s finals with the second and third place teams meeting in semifinals on Saturday. The event website is here.

Alberta is already through to the women's final. I'm cheering for Carolyn, who, you may know, is Scottish Champion Tom Brewster's mother-in-law!

Note though, were Carolyn and her team to win, they would not be in Taarnby next month for the worlds. The winners of the 2012 Canadian Seniors represent Canada at the 2013 World Seniors, at a site and date to be announced.
