As a result of the very successful World Women's and Seniors Championships held in Paisley, Scotland in 2005, the Local Organising Committee were left with a financial surplus to use for curling development in the West of Scotland.
The Committee have made two offers of event sponsorship. The first allowed Braehead Curling Rink to hold a very successful International women's event in January 2008.
Greenacres Curling Rink, the venue of the World Seniors in 2005 have accepted the second offer and will hold the inaugural European Seniors Invitation event in October this year. Invitations have been issued to all member nations of the European Curling Federation asking, where possible, that they give their men's and women's champion teams from last season the opportunity to take part in this first International competition for Seniors in Europe.
In addition to the sponsorship received from the 2005 events, Greenacres are also assisting with some further sponsorship of their own and the package being offered is a most attractive one.
There is no doubt that this is an exciting development in Senior curling and we trust that the event will be a great success.
Please note: This is NOT an ECF championship!!!
