I am pleased to welcome you all, on behalf of the organising committee, to the Mercure City of Perth Masters 2018, a World Curling Tour Event. A massive thank you to our title sponsor, Mercure Perth Hotel, our presenting sponsor Perth Honda and to Perth & Kinross Council for their continued excellent support of this event. We continue to attract the very best teams from across the globe to Dewars Centre and this year seven teams will use The Masters as a preparation event for the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in February.
You can see from the 32 team draw we have elite curlers from many countries all ready to battle on what top class curling ice. Enjoy Perth and Perthshire for what it has to o er and I look forward to many exciting games of curling and the usual sociable curling fellowship on the ice!
Chairman, Mercure City of Perth Masters
