The brier puts the focus on indoor ice

The warm weather has put an end to the skating season on outdoor rinks, speed ovals and the Skateway, but this week all eyes are on the indoor ice at TD Place for the Tim Hortons Brier. For an explanation of the game, or to keep up with the latest results, check out Curling Canada's website.

Fourteen teams representing the clubs across Canada plus the winner of last year's brier (represented as "Team Canada") vie for the Canadian curling championship. 

We may update the curling news in the coming days, but in the meantime, the Scottish Society of Ottawa is working on a letter it will send to potential kilt skate partners as we plan events for Canada's 150th birthday next year. We hope to make the 3rd Annual Sir John A's Great Canadian Kilt Skate the biggest and best ever.
