Scottish Curling is holding a roadshow of open meetings with members, around the country from next month.
These meetings will follow the successful roadshow that took place in summer 2018, that saw hundreds of people attend meetings to discuss the drafting of the new strategy for Scottish Curling. This year the focus will be around consultation on three items and an opportunity for Q&A from the floor. There will be at least one director from the board and one senior staff member at each meeting. We aim to provide updates on key areas, engage with our committed and valued members, have open dialogue - on how we work together to further develop Curling and ask questions of each other.
The Agenda will feature:
- The Structure Review 2018-2020
- Scottish Curling Championships Review
- The World Men’s Curling Championship 2020 in Glasgow
- Questions and Answers from the floor
- On Wednesday 4th December – The Peak, Stirling. 6-8pm
The board and staff of Scottish Curling look forward to welcoming members to the meetings and learning from each other. Refreshments will be provided prior to the start of each meeting.

You will be aware the Men's World Curling Championships are coming to Glasgow in 2020, from 28th March to 5th April 2020.
Scottish Curling and Glasgow Life (who are organising the event on site for the City of Glasgow) are keen it receives maximum publicity and that it is a sell out. To that end they approached all Rinks to ask for a Rink Ambassador to promote the event within their rink, and to be a central point for questions in the Rink, and to push events to publicise the event. Derek Young has been nominated for this role at the Peak, Stirling.
The Emirates is an excellent venue, and this has the potential to be a world class event. Tickets for the event are now on sale for packages. Individual day passes will go on sale on 23rd October. Cost of a 9 day package is only £199.
You will hear updates on a regular basis on the event as we hit key dates, and you will see promotional information in the the Peak Ice Rink.
Stirling Curling Group will also hope to do a lot to promote the event - so more to follow on this web site. For example, we are looking at organising a day trip to the event with travel included. If you are interested in this then let Derek know at the above email address.
