With one of the largest and most diverse applicant pools in the history of the tour, the committee faced a daunting task. There were a total of 65 applicants across the U.S. - 24 from the East representing 16 clubs, 15 from Central representing 11 clubs, 8 from Wisconsin representing 6 clubs, and 18 from the West I and II representing 13 clubs. Six stick curlers applied. Applicants' ages ranged from 31 to 76 years. Years of curling ranged from less than 1 year to 46 years. Twenty women were selected for the tour, with two alternates for each area. Congratulations to the 2016 Scot Tour Team!
