Today's Practice for The Scott
The John Labatt Centre, in downtown London, is busy today with (most of) the best women curlers in Canada preparing for The Scott Tournament of Hearts. Each team has practiced on each sheet of ice, testing the ice and testing EACH rock to get matched pairs of rocks for each of the curlers. Further, each team has assistants and coaches helping them record their observations about the ice and the stones.
As one of the Canadian Curling Association officials told me, at this level, every detail is important.
Beginning Saturday, Alan Adamson and I will be filing reports from The Scott Tournament of Hearts on a regular basis on CHRW. We will also be providing live, play-by-play, of the Thursday morning draw.
