The Rotary Scottish Championship (Rams head) is played every year with the two winners from either year automatically qualifying for the bi-annual Rotary World Championships. The 3rd spot, when not in Scotland, is decided by a play off between the two runners up from either year. If it is held in Scotland the host club qualifies instead. Rotary Scotland is divided into four regions for curling, namely: North, South, East & West. Each region receives entries averaging 12-15. The area organizer can basically run his own competition whichever way he chooses as long as he produces a winner for the Rams head finals in March. The four area winners then play a round robin with the top two going into a final to decide the Rams head winner.

The English team are proud to be members of the International Curling Fellowship of Rotarians and have been present at the Championships since 1994. They were delighted to be the first ever team to be the recipients of the Rolf McKeen Fellowship Award at the 2012 Championships in Laurel, Maryland, USA. The team is open to any Curling member of a Rotary Club based in an English Rotary District. In practice the English team has historically been made up of members of the Berwick-upon-Tweed Rotary Club, as it is the only Rotary Club based in England which currently has curling members. The team for the 2014 Championships is likely to consist, once again, of members of the Berwick Club. They curl at the Kelso Ice Rink in the Scottish Borders.
U.S.A. Rotary Bonspiel
October 22-24, 2021
The U.S Curling Fellowship of Rotarians is planning a bonspiel for October 22-24, 2021 at the Blackhawk Curling Club in Janesville, Wisconsin. This event will serve to renew the ties that bind, and it will be the U.S. qualifier for the April 8-22, 2022 Rotary World Championship in Dumfries, Scotland. Providing of course that public health issues allow that event to be held and international travel restrictions are lifted.
We have 5 veteran U.S. teams planning to participate, and new Rotary curlers would be welcome. All curlers must be a member in good standing of a Rotary Club. Men and women are welcome, and stick curling is allowed.
If you are interested but do not have a full team, contact one of the members listed below and we will try to match you up.
