Canada 150 - Curling in Canada





During our country's 150th anniversary celebration of confederation I will write posts titled Canada 150 with a link to a publication or website I find that may help you tell the story of your Canadian ancestors.
Click on the Canada 150 label on the right or at the bottom to see all the posts.

Today I have for you...


Curling in Canada



The game of curling originated in medieval Scotland.
The Tim Horton's Men's Brier final is today (March 12, 2017) in St. John's NL. If you enjoy curling here is the schedule for upcoming championships.

In 1902-1903 the Scottish Curling Team came to Canada and have been playing against each other every five years since, alternately in Scotland and in Canada. In 1912-13 it was Canada's turn to host.



Check for other curling club publications at your local library.

I imagine you have seen the segment on CBC about the new game everyone is talking about..


Canadians do love their winter sports, and this cross between curling and crockinole looks like fun, eh?
