We thought it would be good idea to find out what plans the winners of the first Scottish Curling Tour had for next season.
Kyle Smith and his team pipped Ally Fraser by 27 points to 24 last season to win the first prize.
Included in the first prize of the Scottish Curling Tour last year was an opportunity for the winning team to spend time during the summer conducting elite training courtesy of the World Class Performance Programme.
Kyle stated that his team worked with Soren Gran and Nancy Smith on various sessions which covered sliding technique and delivery release. He felt these were very worthwhile and his team thanks Soren and Nancy for their time and expertise.
We asked Kyle about his plans and schedule for this season and he confirmed that his junior team now has his brother Cammy in at lead, in place of the over age Kerr Drummond. Aswell as featuring on the SCT, as part of their inclusion in the Performance Squad 2012/13 , Kyle’s team will be competing in four Champion’s Tour events across Europe, the Scottish Mens and the Scottish Juniors (of which they are the holders).
This is a busy schedule indeed along with juggling university workaround.
The teams main aim for this season is to successfully defend their Scottish Junior title which commences with qualifiers at Perth on the weekend of 7-9 December. They also would like to put on a good show in the Scottish Mens Championships and we have no doubt they will indeed be a team to watch this coming season.
We all wish Kyle and his team the best of luck for the season.
