Scot Tour 2016

A twenty member women's team is chosen every 10 years to compete and represent the United States in Scotland.  Tour participants are selected based upon several criteria including physical and social stamina as well as dedication to the organization and game of curling.  For 2016, the tour lasted approximately 3 weeks in early November.  Participants got up early, retired late, and played two 8 end games almost daily.  When not curling, they were traveling, sightseeing, and participating in other group activities.
