The Strathcona Cup, the world’s oldest international curling competition, is returning to Saugeen Shores next month.
The cup takes place every five years between Canada and Scotland and this edition will pit four Scottish teams against four of Port Elgin’s best rinks.
The Cup is over 120 years old, starting way back in 1903. This year will see three tours from Scotland visit about 24 clubs across Canada before meeting in Ottawa in February for a final celebration.
The local leg of the Strathcona Cup takes place on Jan. 15 at the Port Elgin Curling Club, beginning at 9:30 a.m. with an opening ceremony.
