The U.S. Senior Women’s Curling Association Friendship Tour stopped in Richmond last Tuesday as part of a 12-day visit to B.C.

Sixteen women from 11 states make up the team, which played four games against teams from the Richmond Ladies Curling Club.  So far, the U.S. team has played against teams from seven clubs throughout the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island.

Their visit to the Richmond Curling Club began with all the participating teams being piped onto the ice, in true Scottish tradition, to the tunes of a local bagpiper.
