Grippers (Anti-Sliders) deteriorate over time. One should change them before every season or when black material begins to shed.

When there are flat spots or balding around the heel and toe areas , it's time to replace as the gripper isn’t safe. General rule of thumb , if you curl in 1 league change once per season. If you curl in 2 or more leagues , change out at least twice a season.

SCC Pro Shop has you covered for replacement grippers and broom heads.

After 'stacking the brooms' in Simcoe on Tuesday, Jan. 17, Scottish and Canadian curlers enjoyed a dram of whisky, an old Scottish curling tradition. Clockwise from bottom left are Mike Davis, John Stevenson, Willie Paterson, Iain Buchanan, Derek Sutton, Alastair Fyfe, Mike Cobb and Rob Inglis.

Perhaps the highlight of Tuesday’s curling at the Simcoe Curling Club was the stacking of the brooms.

It’s a tradition during the Strathcona Cup, which is played every five years alternating between Canada and Scotland since 1903, for curlers to take a short break midway through their eight-end games.

“Back in the day, outside, the brooms were always stacked like this,” said Scottish second Ian Duffin, a member of the club council from the Broomhall Curling Club, which was founded by Victor Alexander, the 9th Earl of Elgin in 1880, in the Fife region, north of Edinburgh.

“You stack the brooms, halfway, come off the ice, and share a dram… it’s as simple as that,” said Duffin, who was playing on a team with skip Neil Murray, third James Young and lead Drew Paton. “It’s a very Scottish tradition. A good single malt whisky.”

Rotarians revive decades-long tradition put on ice by the pandemic
 

Anna Martin had barely crossed the threshold of the Simcoe Curling Club before someone handed the curler from Perth, Scotland, a nip of Scotch.

When she was offered a refill shortly thereafter, Martin began to suspect a plot.

“They try to fill us with as much food and drink so we’ll be absolutely useless on the ice,” she said with a smile. “And we do the same when they come back to us.”

Martin led a group of 16 Scottish curlers in a bonspiel against a team from Simcoe on Thursday in the latest edition of the Scotland Canada Rotary Curling Tour.

The curlers are piped onto the playing surface.
