The lineup for the Ramada Perth Masters, Scotland's only World Curling Tour event for men's teams, has been posted on the event website. The competition is scheduled for January 3-6, 2008, at the Dewars Centre.
Sixteen of the teams in the 32-rink field are from abroad, and these include Yosuke Morozumi's team all the way from Japan. Glenn Howard, current World Champion, heads up the Canadian challenge. His rink was runner-up in Perth last season. (Thanks to Scottish Curler Reader for keeping me right, see comment below. It must be an age thing!)
The event goes ahead with title sponsorship from Ramada Jarvis hotels. The West End Garage, Broughty Ferry, is once again the presenting sponsor (more cars on the ice!) and the competition has continued support from Perth and Kinross Council. Peter Loudon is Chairman of the organising committee.
Put the dates in your diary!
