Curling is an International Olympic sport in which 42lb granite stones are slid along an icy surface to come to rest atop a painted target. In some ways similar to Boccie ball or Shuffleboard, curling has been described as 'Chess on Ice'. /Curling is your source for Curling news, Locations for learn-to-curl events, and other such topics.

The world's best head to London for Continental Cup

It’s been just two years since the Continental Cup of Curling last hit the Forest City — now, teams from all over the world are set to return Jan. 9-12, taking over the Sports Centre at London’s Western Fair District.
The 2018 edition drew near-capacity crowds all weekend before coming down to an epic end, with Team North America’s Brad Gushue barely winning a draw-to-the-button against Team World’s Thomas Ulsrud after an intense competition with a 30-30 deadlock.
It was considered one of the most thrilling finishes in cup history.
The event traditionally attracts a host of curling’s biggest names, and 2020 will be no exception with a stellar field that includes Canadian, world and Olympic champions from both sides of pond as Team Canada takes on Team Europe in a series of traditional four-player, mixed doubles, skins games and more over the span of four days.
In addition, Team Canada (there will be no U.S. representation this year) will be in the rare position of seeking to avenge after losing last year’s Continental Cup in Las Vegas, with Team Europe defending the crown. The win ended a dry spell for the overseas squad since losing six straight editions of the Continental Cup, since their last win in 2012 in Langley, B.C.
As always, the home team will have a deep lineup — with just some of the qualifiers for Team Canada including teams skipped by Tim Hortons Brier champ Kevin Koe of Calgary, Scotties Tournament of Hearts champion Chelsea Carey of Calgary, as well as Brendan Bottcher of Edmonton and Rachel Homan of Ottawa; with the latter two qualified based on their 2018-19 Canadian Team Ranking System performance.
Calling the shots for Team Canada has Coach Jeff Stoughton leading the way, with support from the husband-and-wife tandem of Heather (Assistant Coach) and David Nedohin (Captain).
standing in the way of a Canadian victory will be a powerhouse Team Europe lineup brimming with confidence after last year’s win in Las Vegas, including reigning world champs Niklas Edin (Sweden) and Silvana Tirinzoni (Switzerland), Olympic gold-medallist Anna Hasselborg of Sweden, along with Peter de Cruz (Switzerland) and the Scottish tandem of Eve Muirhead and Bruce Mouat.
Also returning to the Team Europe staff will be Coach David Murdoch of Scotland, Captain Fredrik Lindberg of Sweden and Assistant Coach Christoffer Svae of Norway.
The format will also remain the same as the Las Vegas event, save for one change — a mixed doubles draw is being dropped, replaced by an additional draw of the popular mixed scramble, in which teams are blended to form new lineups.
And based on the results of an early ticket sales drive, curling.ca says fans in London need to act quickly if they want to watch the world’s best curlers under one roof go head to head in curling’s version of the Ryder Cup.
The 2020 OK Tire and BKT Tires Continental Cup hits the Forest City Jan. 9-12, 2020 at the Sport Centre (865 Florence St.) at London’s Western Fair District.
Subject to availability, single-draw tickets have been on sale since Nov. 19, ranging in price from $20 to $45 per draw. Also subject to availability, youth tickets will be available for purchase during the event at a price of $15. This offer is not available for advance purchase.

2018.09.14 05:42 Obversa "The Aristocrats": Hamilton's British Relatives' Relationship with (and Opposition to) King George III During the American Revolution

This is an informational post / article as to another perspective not explored in "Hamilton", written and posted to explain the historical background, context, and role(s) of Alexander Hamilton's seemingly absent British-Scottish family, relatives, background, and heritage in the play.
About a year ago, I made an Casual AMA post here. As a tl;dnr: I am a descendant of the Hamilton family through Robert Hamilton (c. 21 March 1476 - 1543), a relative / ancestor of Alexander Hamilton, the namesake and protagonist of Hamilton.
The Hamilton family, also more formally known as the Stuart-Hamilton-Lennox family (as the royal Scottish house of Stuart married into the Hamilton and Lennox noble families, and often had cousins marry each other throughout the centuries), as many Hamilton viewers may not be aware of, also gave rise to other members of the Hamilton extended family...particularly, the Lennox family.
I will paste in the part I wrote for my casual AMA below:
It is said that [my ancestor] Robert Hamilton was the third son of Princess Mary, Countess of Arran, daughter of King James II of Scotland, of the royal house of Stewart; and her husband, James Hamilton, 1st Earl of Arran, and 2nd Lord Hamilton. (Some records indicate this may be the case, but I do not have access to them at this time. I kind of had to piece together records for this due to them being spotty at best.)
As such, Robert was thought to be given the title of "Seigneur d'Aubigny" ("Lord / Duke of Aubigny"), a traditional title of the Stewarts given to them by France (Aubigny) as part of the Auld Alliance between Scotland and France.
(In 1942, Charles de Gaulle said of the alliance, "In every combat where for five centuries / 500 years the destiny of France was at stake, there were always men of Scotland to fight side by side with men of France, and what Frenchmen feel is that no people has ever been more generous than yours with its friendship.")
Interestingly, according to the records I currently have, Robert married Elizabeth Campbell, the daughter of Campbell (Goodman) of Glaister, or Glacester (Angus), the niece of the Sheriff of Ayrshire [the latter of whom also had connection to the earls of Lennox].
They had at least two (claimed) children: Janet Hamilton, born in 1500, who wed Alexander Burnet, 4th Baron & 9th Laird of Leys; and Matthew Hamilton, born in 1512, who wed Jean Muirhead of Torrance.
It is noted that Alexander Hamilton's Scottish-born father, James A. Hamilton, was the fourth son of Alexander Hamilton, laird of Grange, Ayrshire. Ayrshire and Arran are the same / right next to each other, so it's quite likely that Alexander may also be descended from Robert, and, quite possibly, Princess Mary Stewart, the Countess of Arran.
Indeed, the Hamiltons, due to James Hamilton's marriage to the King's daughter, were known henceforth as the "Hamiltons of [the Countess of] Arran".
Which would make Alexander Hamilton technically of royal descent.
(If not royal by blood, then most definitely by marriage - the Hamiltons were "cousins to the King of Scotland", from James IV of Scotland onwards. They...well, the older sons, at least...were also gifted lands and titles "for [their] nearness of blood" to the King.)
Due to their proximity to the throne, Mary's descendants, the Hamiltons of Arran and the Stewart Lennoxes, would obtain considerable power, and play conspicuous roles in 16th century Scottish politics; especially affecting the life and reign of Mary, Queen of Scots, the great-granddaughter of her brother, James III.
Quite interestingly, the Stewart Lennoxes - another branch of the Hamilton family (Countess / Princess Mary x Lord James Hamilton), also Alexander's relatives - were also nobility and of royal descent.
In 1759, King George III was smitten with Lady Sarah Lennox, sister of the Duke of Richmond, but his royal advisor Lord Bute advised against the match, and George abandoned his thoughts of marriage.
Sarah Lennox was "the most notorious of the famous Lennox Sisters"; featured on the BBC miniseries Aristocrats; and, like Alexander Hamilton, was orphaned at an early age (5 years old)...and, much like her male cousin(s), she was known for "having affairs".
To this end, Sarah Lennox committed adultery with Lord William Gordon, the second son of the Duke of Gordon, and gave birth to his illegitimate daughter, Louisa, in 1768. She also divorced her noble husband to marry an army officer, the Hon. George Napier. With Napier, Sarah had eight more children.
Sarah Lennox and George Napier's sons - Charles James Napier, William Francis Patrick Napier and George Thomas Napier, all of whom were noted military officers - are collectively referred to as "Wellington's Colonels".
(Indeed, many of the Hamiltons, or Hamilton extended family, served as military advisors, generals, and officers for the Kings of Scotland and England.)
That being said, after additional research, I realized something: the aforementioned BBC program "The Aristocrats", which I will link below, also covers the activities of Alexander's relatives - most notably, his Lennox female cousins, and their husbands - and their political efforts as leaders of the British opposition against King George II and his son, King George III.
These events take place leading up to, during, and after the American Revolution, albeit on the British side of the conflict, giving the perspective of this British branch of the Stuart-Hamilton-Lennox extended family.
Episodes of the program below:
That is to say, Alexander Hamilton's desire to fight for Patriotism and against King George III and the Hanoverian dynasty wasn't just political. As a likely royal Stuart descendant himself, through his father, one could say that it was simply in Alexander's Scottish blood and heritage.
There is a long, and quite frankly, very detailed history of the Hamilton family, leading up to the American Revolution. However, the long and short of is this: the Stuart-Hamiltons once held the throne of Great Britain, resulting in the Stuart dynasty. The father of the last Stuart monarch, King James II, was forced from the British throne for being Catholic, resulting in the Scottish Jacobite uprisings / War of British Succession.
James II's Stuart (and, in turn, Hamilton) succession was, in turn, replaced by the Protestant House of Hanover, the latter of which King George III belonged to.
The War of British Succession also gave rise to the Stuart vs. Hanoverian conflict over royal succession, which was likely to have been one of the factors that caused Alexander Hamilton's father, James Hamilton, to try and "make his fortune / life" in the Caribbean to begin with...thus, in turn, leading up to the birth of Alexander Hamilton himself.
At one point, prior to the Stuart dynasty, James Hamilton, 3rd Earl of Arran, had once been a potential husband, and Prince Consort, to Queen Elizabeth I of the Tudor dynasty...a deal that ultimately fell through, with Elizabeth's royal advisors claiming that Lord Arran "showed signs of madness".
Lord Arran himself was regarded as second (and then third) in line to the Scottish throne to Mary, Queen of Scots, for whom his father served as Regent for. Lord Arran, too, had once been a potential groom for the Queen of Scots, but that, too, fell through, in favor of marrying the Queen to the French heir to the throne to further solidify the Auld ("Old") Alliance between Scotland and France.
(The Scottish-French Auld Alliance, too, would later be symbolized and demonstrated through the friendship of Alexander Hamilton and Marquis de Lafayette in Hamilton.)
Mary, Queen of Scots ended up later remarrying another member Stuart-Hamilton-Lennox family - Henry Stuart, Lord Darnley, heir apparent to the Earldom of Lennox, and himself also descendant of Lord Hamilton and Princess Mary, Countess of Arran. This coupling would give rise to King James VI and I of Scotland, England, and Ireland, founder of the Stuart dynasty.
After the ousting of the Stuart dynasty, the efforts of the the Stuart-Hamilton-Lennoxes, over the years, seemed to be relatively split. The Journal of the American Revolution claims that the Scots attempted to distance themselves from American colonial politics; in 1762, John Stuart, 3rd Earl of Bute, who posed no succession threat to the Hanoverians, became the first Scot to become prime minister of Great Britain, and close royal advisor (and tutor) to King George III.
It was also Lord Bute who advised King George III against his desire to wed Lady Sarah Lennox, another one of Alexander Hamilton's cousins, and another descendant of the "exiled" Stuart royal bloodline. (See original paragraph at the top of the post.)
Even before King George III's rule, many Scots, or even Englishmen, weren't exactly fond of the Hanoverian monarchs at points, including the King's father, King George II.
George II and chief minister, Sir Robert Walpole, were loathed by the chattering classes of the day. Jonathan Swift’s diatribes and fables, John Gay’s “Beggar’s Opera”, and Samuel Johnson’s commentary pilloried the Hanoverians as corrupt and in league with the bankers and financiers of the City of London.
The anti-Hanoverian Cato’s Letters and Bolingbroke’s Idea of a Patriot King provided arguments and inspiration to the Founding Fathers in North America. (Source)
Indeed, during and after the War of British Succession, many Jacobites ended up settling in America. Some also supported the Patriot cause.
It is interesting to note that those Scots who had lived in the colonies for long periods, and were familiar with colonial politics, tended to support the Revolution, even in areas of Loyalism.
They supported the Revolution not because they were Scots; they supported the Revolution because they believed in the potential of the Revolution to challenge the corruption of the Old World, and turn its back on the constraints of aristocracy and privilege. (Source)
Most notably, the Lennox sisters, their spouses, and their children, like their cousin Alexander Hamilton, were known for their ever-changing (and often antagonistic) relationship with King George III. This also may have very well been due to the King's perceived slight in his leading-on, and rejection, of Lady Sarah Lennox as his original intended bride, and would-be Queen, in favor of Lord Bute's choice of Princess Charlotte of Mecklenburg.
The opposition also included the actions of the satesman "The Right Honourable" Charles James Fox, son of Lady Caroline Lennox Fox, and nephew of Lady Sarah Lennox. Fox also occasionally corresponded with Thomas Jefferson, and had met Benjamin Franklin in Paris.
[Charles James] Fox, [later known for his advocating of "Equal Representation" before Parliament and the "Man of the People"], became a prominent and staunch opponent of King George III, whom he regarded as an aspiring tyrant; he supported the American Patriots, even dressing in the colours of George Washington's army.
Briefly serving as Britain's first Foreign Secretary in the ministry of the Marquess of Rockingham in 1782, he returned to the post in a coalition government with his old enemy Lord North in 1783. However, the King forced Fox and North out of government before the end of the year, replacing them with the twenty-four-year-old Pitt the Younger, and Fox spent the following twenty-two years facing Pitt and the government benches from across the Commons.
Though Fox had little interest in the actual exercise of power and spent almost the entirety of his political career in opposition, he became noted as an anti-slavery campaigner, a supporter of the French Revolution, and a leading parliamentary advocate of religious tolerance and individual liberty. (Wikipedia)
Likewise, in the aftermath of Britain's "disastrous" loss in the American Revolution (1782–1784):
Rather than accept in office Charles Fox and the opposition, King George III drafted an abdication speech declaring he would retire to Hanover. He did not deliver the speech, and he was rescued from a situation which he found intolerable by young William Pitt, in 1784. But the crisis had taken its toll, with the king frequently agitated and talking excitedly. (Source)
George III seriously thought of abdicating at this time, after the comprehensive defeat of his American policy, and the imposition [and political alliance] of Fox and North, but refrained from doing so, mainly because of the thought of his succession by his son, George Augustus Frederick: the notoriously extravagant womaniser, gambler and associate of Fox, who could swear in three languages.
Indeed, in many ways, the King considered Fox his son's tutor in debauchery.
"George III let it be widely broadcast that he held Charles Fox principally [and personally] responsible for [his son] the Prince’s many failings, not least a tendency to vomit in public."
Many Colonists of English descent, however, largely tended to look down upon those of Scottish descent. This included Thomas Jefferson, who also features heavily in Hamilton, and who used anti-Scottish sentiment to try and decry Lord Bute, King George III's "Scottish royal advisor".
Thomas Jefferson may have been influenced by Scottish philosophy, but this did not prevent him from claiming in a draft of the Declaration that Britain had sent “Scotch and foreign mercenaries” to “deluge” the colonists in blood.
The offending article was only left out at the insistence of Scottish-born John Witherspoon, the president of the College of New Jersey (now Princeton) and a signer of the Declaration.
If these were the attitudes toward Scots present in the highest levels of the Revolutionary leadership, the idea that Scottish support for the Revolution was widespread must be treated with some suspicion.
On the other hand, Alexander Hamilton, in defiance of Jefferson's slight to those of Scottish blood, wrote letters to his paternal relatives, including his uncle in Scotland, William Hamilton. (One of Alexander and Elizabeth's "black sheep" sons, William Stephen Hamilton, was also apparently named after Alexander's Scottish uncle.)
Alexander Hamilton, who grew up without a family, also expressed an excited interest in reconnecting with his Scottish relatives, writing to inform his uncle (and extended family) of his achievements and life...
Albany, State of New York
May the 2d. 1797
My Dear Sir,
Some days since I received with great pleasure your letter of the 10th. of March. The mark, it affords, of your kind attention, and the particular account it gives me of so many relations in Scotland are extremely gratifying to me.
You no doubt have understood that my fathers affairs at a very early day went to wreck; so as to have rendered his situation during the greatest part of his life far from eligible. This state of things occasionned a separation between him and me, when I was very young, and threw me upon the bounty of my mothers relations, some of whom were then wealthy, though by vicissitudes to which human affairs are so liable, they have been since much reduced and broken up.
Myself at about sixteen came to this Country. Having always had a strong propensity to literary pursuits, by a course of steady and laborious exertion, I was able, by the age of Ninteen to qualify myself for the degree of Batchelor of Arts in the College of New York, and to lay a foundation, by preparatory study, for the future profession of the law.
The American Revolution supervened. My principles led me to take part in it. At nineteen, I entered into the American army as Captain of Artillery. Shortly after, I became by his invitation Aide De Camp to General Washington, in which station, I served till the commencement of that Campaign which ended with the seige of York, in Virginia, and the Capture of Cornwallis’s Army. This Campaign I made at the head of a corps of light infantry, with which I was present at the seige of York and engaged in some interesting operations.
At the period of the peace with Great Britain, I found myself a member of Congress by appointment of the legislature of this state.
After the peace, I settled in the City of New York in the practice of the law; and was in a very lucrative course of practice, when the derangement of our public affairs, by the feebleness of the general confederation, drew me again reluctantly into public life. I became a member of the Convention which framed the present Constitution of the U States; and having taken part in this measure, I conceived myself to be under an obligation to lend my aid towards putting the machine in some regular motion. Hence I did not hesitate to accept the offer of President Washington to undertake the office of Secretary of the Treasury.
[...] It is a pleasing reflection to me that since the commencement of my connection with General Washington to the present time, I have possessed a flattering share of his confidence and friendship.
Having given you a brief sketch of my political career, I proceed to some further family details.
In the year 1780 I married [Elizabeth Schuyler], the second daughter of General Schuyler, a Gentleman of one of the best families of this Country; of large fortune, and no less personal, and public consequence.
It is impossible to be happier than I am in a wife [as I am with Eliza], and I have five Children, four sons and a daughter, the eldest [Philip], a son somewhat passed fifteen, who all promise well, as far as their years permit and yield me much satisfaction.
Though I have been too much in public life to be wealthy, my situation is extremely comfortable, and leaves me nothing to wish but a continuance of health. With this blessing, the profits of my profession and other prospects authorise an expectation of such addition to my resources as will render the eve of life, easy and agreeable; so far as may depend on this consideration.
It is now several months since I have heared from my father, James Hamilton, [your brother], who continued [to live on] the Island of St. Vincents. My anxiety at this silence would be greater than it is, were it not for the considerable interruption and precariousness of intercourse, which is produced by the War.
I have strongly pressed the old Gentleman [James] to come to reside with me, which would afford him every enjoyment of which his advanced age is capable, [as a duty of one's son to his father]. But he has declined it, on the ground that the advice of his Physicians leads him to fear that the change of Climate would be fatal to him.
The next thing for me is, in proportion to my means to endeavour to increase his comforts where he is.
It will give me [and Eliza] the greatest pleasure to receive your son and [my cousin], Robert [Hamilton] at my house in [upstate] New York, and still more to be of use to him; to which end my recommendation and interest will not be wanting, and, I hope, not unavailing.
It is my intention to embrace the Opening which your letter affords me to extend intercourse with my relations in your Country, which will be a new source of satisfaction to me. (Source)

I'm 95% sure on each of the names that haven't been disclosed by TVNZ yet. I say 95% because as you see the numbers don't add up (8 men and 10 women). That would still make for two tribes equally divided by gender, though :)

2018.03.03 20:00 danz026 Scotland world championship playoff

Interesting scenes in Perth. As Eve Muirhead and Kyle Smith missed the Scottish Championships due to being in Pyeongchang, they’re playing a best-of-3 world championship playoff against the Scottish Champions Hannah Fleming and Bruce Mouat.
The olympic rinks are funded full time curlers whereas the Scottish champion teams are part time curlers, so you’d expect easy wins for the Olympic teams however Kyle Smith’s rink was thumped 9-4 by Mouat’s team in game 1 this afternoon and now Muirhead’s team are losing 7-1 to Fleming after 3 ends including a steal of 3 in the first.
Quite bizarre to see professional curlers being so easily dispatched by fun players.

2018.02.24 15:01 itsalllies If you read the BBC you'd think there is only 1 person in a curling team.

Not one mention of anyone apart from Eve Muirhead, every article is the same.
