YARA Farmers Curling Championship

YARA'S ANNUAL Farmers Curling Championship celebrates its 30th anniversary this year and almost 300 competitors are due to take part at the event, which will run from January 21 until January 25 at the Dewars centre in Perth.

The championship will see 70 or so teams, made up of some of Europe's top curlers and coming from as far afield as Caithness in the north to Berwick in the south, compete over five days of intense curling action, with a trophy and cash prize awarded to the winners. Yara area manager – and championship organiser for the past 30 years – Alan Wood said: "Reaching the 30th anniversary is a real milestone. The competition goes from strength to strength and has become a real highlight for farmers in Scotland and Northern England, and gives us the opportunity to engage further with our valued customers." "I'm looking forward to seeing some world class curling and undoubtedly excellent support from a good number of spectators. The event sees all levels of players compete, from occasional or club curlers right up to world champions," he added
