BRAEHEAD OPEN 2017 sponsored by CARDWELL GARDEN CENTRE.
Friday 22nd to Sunday 24th September 2017
I have much pleasure in inviting you to enter a team into the Braehead Open 2017 which this year is once again being generously sponsored by Cardwell Garden Centre.
This competition, part of the Scottish Goldline Curling Tour, continues to attract a very high standard of curling. However, we always have room for the average club team as the competition splits into High, Middle and low Roads after the first three rounds. We hope to attract 32 teams including the usual mix of teams from other parts of The United Kingdom and Europe.
First round games start at either 6pm or 8.30pm on the Friday and the final is 2.30pm on Sunday. This offers all teams at least 4 games with the majority of teams playing up to 6 games.
The Competition is open to all teams, with prize money of at least £2000 and prizes are available for a range of participants including under 25s, best overseas, seniors, ladies, Braehead members, as well as the main prize of £650 for the Braehead Open Champions.
Entry Fee is £200. (Special entry fee of £160.00 to teams consisting of only Braehead members)
There are local hotels within 5 minutes of Braehead. Glasgow International airport is just 10 minutes away and Prestwick Airport is 30 minutes. Further information regarding travel or accommodation is available if required.
Any queries or To reserve your place send an e-mail to David.firstname.lastname@example.org

We promise you a top quality event, yet a very friendly competition, with great ice at the start of the 2017 season.
