Scot Tour Postponed until January 2022

(by Donna Pearson, Scot Tour Chair, August 30, 2020)

The 2021 Women's USWCA Scot Tour will officially be held 364 days later than planned!  Moving the Scottish trip forward one year, the women arrive in Minneapolis, Minnesota, January 3, 2022 and spend several weeks curling, touring, and visiting clubs across the country and return home January 28, 2022, from Boston, Massachusetts.  Visting clubs across the nation, the women fly into Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota and begin curling.  The USWCA Clubs participating include: St. Paul/Arden Hills, Four Seasons, Denver, Wausau, Madison, Kettle Moraine, Milwaukee, Chicago, Exmoor, Bowling Green, Detroit, Belfast, Nashua, Cape Cod, and Broomstones.

This provides an additional year of preparation given our current health climate.  And I assure you the Lady Scots are very eager to visit.  They send greetings of good health and wellness in addition to good curling.

All USWCA Clubs will receive an email announcing such changes and invite everyone to join in the curling when the Tour Comes to or near your club.

If there are questions or concerns, please contact Donna K. Pearson using the Contact page and putting Scot Tour in the message box along with your inquiry.  

Wellness and Peace.

Scot Tour 2021

Clubs Ready to Welcome Women's Scot Tour (by Donna Pearson as appeared in the Aug. 2019 Curling News)

The USWCA received so many applications to host the incoming Scot Tour that the committee wrestled with how to create the best schedule and most representative, diverse experience for our Scottish guests in 2021.

The Tour will kick off in Minneapolis with an opening banquet in early January.  The Scots will curl with the women of host clubs St. Paul, Arden Hills, and Four Seasons before flying to Denver for a three-day curling and sightseeing trip.  The Scots then head to Wisconsin to curl in Wausau, Madison, Kettle Moraine, and Milwaukee before taking a break in Chicago for more sightseeing, and curling at the Chicago and Exmoor clubs.  Their Midwest swing ends with stops to curl at Bowling Green and Detroit.  From there they head to the East Coast to curl in Belfast, Maine, and Nashua, N.H. before traveling south to Cape Cod.  They end their American tour at Broomstones, which will also host the closing banquet.

The USWCA invites all curlers and clubs that are near a host club to share in the songs and laughter, and love of the game.  Please contact the regional coordinators with questions about playing or volunteering:

East: Stacie Pinnavaia and Ann Kirkpatrick

Central: Cheryl Drake and Tammy Hoffman

Wisconsin: Margie Knitter and Kristin Smith

West: Carol Ann Naso and Sandy Bromenschenkel

For additional questions, please contact the 2021 Scot Tour Committee Co-Chairs, Donna K. Pearson and/or Tracy Lawless.
