BELFRY CURLING: K-W Granite skip advances to senior men's Canadian championship
THE CURLING NEWS BLOG: Morris announces curling sabbatical – perhaps
No Mo Johnny... unless... John Morris has spoken. The finalist from both the Brier and the Canadian Olympic Trials has issued a statement today on his immediate curling future, and here it is: This ad appears in our April issue After a lot of thought and deliberation, I have decided to take a step back from the game of curling next year. I had the tremendous pleasure of playing with three great, genuine teammates in Jim Cotter, Tyrel Griffith and Rick Sawatsky as we made it farther than I think anyone would have predicted for a team playing its first year together. You were all amazing, as was our coach, Pat Ryan, and our alternates Jody Epp and Jason Gunnlaugson. I am extremely proud of our squad for what we accomplished, and would like to thank my guys for helping me recover my passion and...
VIEW FROM THE HACK: Dumfries Welcomes The World – Part 1
The 2013-14 season has been a busy one but it seems to have passed very quickly and now here we are in April ready for the final events of the season. Happily, they are close to home and there are no pesky time differences! Sochi and Beijing in the same season...anyone else still catching up on sleep? Dumfries, Scotland is currently hosting the 2014 World Mixed Doubles Curling Championship and the 2014 World Senior Curling Championships and I think it's fair to say that the town's population has grown significantly thanks to the record number of teams taking part. Of the 53 nations that make up the World Curling Federation, 34 have sent teams to this year's World Mixed Doubles while there are 25 across the men's and women's events at the World Seniors – impressive numbers I'm sure you...
THE CURLING SHOW: Kaitlyn Lawes, playing Third for Team Canada at the Sochi Games.
She's been on the ice since she was a five-year-old and in the spotlight since her days as a top junior skip. I talked to Kaitlyn back in December, shortly after her team had earned the right to be Team Canada at the Sochi Games. Even if you don't curl like an Olympian, there's no reason you shouldn't look like you really know what you're doing. Give your team the trappings of the best with Runback curling apparel â€;quot; go to Runback and find custom curling apparel for your squad. Just Run It.

BOB WEEKS ON CURLING: Morris to skip Team Canada, Bailey to fill in for Rycroft
Yup. Just a few weeks after announcing he was going to take the year off, Johnny Mo is back. In a release from the CCA, Morris said has agreed to skip the three remaining Team Canada players although the schedule will be quite limited.;nbsp;"My plan was to take the 2014-15 season off as I move ahead in my career as a firefighter," said Morris, a resident of Chestermere, Alta., just outside of Calgary. "But to be able to play for Team Canada, and considering the Alberta events are so close to home, it was hard to pass up on this offer. I talked it over with Jim, Tyrel and Rick and they were very understanding. I can't thank them enough for the season we had, and I wish them nothing but the very best going forward."As well, Carter Rycroft will be appearing in a limited...

Three more medal opportunities will be on the line when Canadian teams open play on Wednesday at the 2014 World Senior Men's, Senior Women's and Mixed Doubles Championships at the Dumfries Ice Bowl in Dumfries, Scotland. Colleen Pinkney's team from Truro, N.S. (third Wendy Currie, second Shelley MacNutt, lead Susan Creelman) will be looking for Canada's 10th World Senior Women's Curling Championship. (Photo, Canadian Curling Association) The Canadian entries will be looking to defend the gold medals our country won at the 2013 World Senior Men's and Women's Championships in Fredericton, N.B., while our mixed doubles entry will be looking for just our second medal in the seven-year history of the event. In senior women's play, Colleen Pinkney's team from Truro, N.S., (third Wendy Currie,...
CURLING HISTORY: Curling Connections
The Dumfries Museum was founded in 1835 as an astronomical observatory and museum in a stone windmill built about 1790 on Corberry Hill. A Camera Obscura in the tower is still a popular attraction. The main hall of the museum was built in 1862 and houses collections from all over Dumfries and Galloway.The museum is worth a visit at any time, but from today until June 15, there is a special exhibition, 'Curling Connections', celebrating that Dumfries Ice Bowl is the venue for the World Seniors and the World Mixed Doubles Curling Championships. The exhibition examines the social importance of curling and reveals the contribution to the development of the sport made by the people of Dumfries and Galloway.As well as local items, some of the rarest artifacts from the history of the sport...
FULL GRANITE JACKET: The 2016 USA curling championships will be in Jacksonville
Yep, there it is on the USCA website. We're going to have a curling championship in Florida. This is apparently something they've been working on for a few years, trying to get some niche interests into the region.Currently there are zero active curling clubs in Florida â€;quot; the closest one is Atlanta â€;quot; but there used to be one in the Tampa area. This is certainly part of their attempt to expand curling interest into states with pretty super awesome winters, such as the Continental Cup in Las Vegas and the clinic in Hawaii last year. They haven't announced the facility but it'll probably be the Jacksonville Ice ;amp; SportsPlex, and with any luck they can also start a recreational curling club there, similar to what Kalamazoo did â€;quot; they founded a club in 2008 and hosting...
COACH BILL: Proceed With Caution
It's not only that time of year, it's that time in the Olympic quadrennial and when it happens with the most high profile teams, it gets played out in the media for all to see. Of course I'm taking about player personnel changes.But, to be quite frank, I'm not that concerned about the elite teams and what they do re. player changes, they're big boys and girls so I'll defer to their experience in matters like this. No, this is directed at you, the serious recreational curler who might be contemplating a change in team personnel.What follows are my thoughts on this most important issue but permit me one observation on what's happening literally as I publish this post. I'll not delve into the specifics of the teams who have announced changes although I will...
CURL WITH MATH: ATH, 03/27/14: Between Two Worlds

BEHIND THE GLASS: In Defence of the Scottish
Actually, it all started with a miss by one of the five against the other four.;nbsp; Otherwise the four would never have become five and, I suspect, we would have had a different team at the recent Winter Olympics.;nbsp; Confused?;nbsp; Let me explain.It is February 2011 at Perth ice rink and the Scottish Championship is approaching its denouement.;nbsp; In the semi-final, Tom Brewster is skipping a team of young hopefuls - a couple of whom wore the same kind of scars as their more experienced skip had in abundance.;nbsp; Both Greg Drummond and Michael Goodfellow had recently aged out without winning the Scottish Junior Championship.;nbsp; Their last chance had been against the Ally Fraser team, with Greg's brother, Kerr at lead.;nbsp; Anyhow.;nbsp; Back to the semi-final; Tom and company...

GRASSROOTS CURLING: CurlingGeek is for curling geeks - I mean, fans - anywhere
So, there I am at the Capital One Road to the Roar - the Canadian Olympic Pre-Trials - in Kitchener this past week, watching Draws 1-18 until I think even I have the tricky ice on Sheet E figured out... I'm writing a game summary to go on the CCA website (yes, this is my day job) and get distracted by a question/phone call/great shot on another sheet. When I look back, there's Gushue's teaming
EDMONTON JOURNAL: Chelsea Carey moves to Alberta; teams up with Laura Crocker
Manitoba skip Chelsea Carey takes a shot during her semifinal loss to Alberta's Val Sweeting at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts Canadian womens' curling championship on Feb. 8, 2014, in Montreal.Move over Alberta champion Val Sweeting. Step aside 2012 Canadian champ Heather Nedohin. The province just got a little more crowded for the elite women's curling teams with Chelsea Carey moving to Edmonton. Calgary's Cheryl Bernard and Shannon Kleibrink have won Olympic medals. Two-time provincial champ Renee Sonnenberg of Grande Prairie is always a contender....
OTTAWA CITIZEN: Skipping Out, Skipping Off On An Olympic Journey
Bryan Cochrane uses a whistle to signal to his sweepers during the 2014 Ontario men's curling championship at Smiths Falls. The Ontario men's curling championship ended with a semifinal loss for the City View Curling Club team of Bryan Cochrane, Mat Camm, Brad Kidd and Jason Camm. What comes next remains to be seen, but it seems as likely as not that the 56-year-old Cochrane will “retire” from competitive curling, which would allow 23-year-old Mat Camm to move back to skip with his own...
MIKE THE CURLING GUY: Dear Santa - Don't put me on the naughty curler list
Dear Santa;Once again, I am writing to you with a set of wishes for Christmas for me and some of my fellow curlers. I realize that I was on the "naughty" list last year, which explains the autographed Wayne Middaugh shirt I found under the tree. Unfortunately I have not been able to find a good home for it on eBay yet, but I am still trying. I feel that I have been particularly nice this year; my broom slamming and throwing was limited to but a few thoroughly justifiable occasions (I think even Mrs. Claus would have whammed something if her draw had stopped an inch short of shot in an extra end); hardly enough to warrant inclusion on the infamous "naughty curler" list.So here are some gift suggestions:;nbsp;- For Mark Dacey; a postcard from Charlevoix - saying: Come Back...
