Competitive curling in 2008 begins with a bang at the Dewar's Rinks in Perth as the Ramada Perth Masters gets underway tomorrow. The first games are at 4.45 pm Thursday, January 3. The full draw can be found here.
World Champion Glenn Howard (below) is the star attraction in the thirty-two team field which also includes the top names from Scotland and Europe. The event will be run as a triple knockout.
There will be a live video feed from the event using new P2P software from Rawflow. A test broadcast is already running. Check it out and get set up by following the webcam link from the Perth Masters website here.
The Perth Masters is the only World Curling Tour-Europe event in Scotland for the men, although the new Glynhill Ladies Invitation is set for Braehead in a couple of weeks time.
