A warm welcome to the teams and spectators at the 2018 Mercure City of Perth Masters! It gives me great pleasure to once again renew our sponsorship with the competition and I would like to take this opportunity to welcome the teams from various countries around the world to Perth and to Scotland.
The Mercure Perth Hotel management team, the organising committee under the leadership of Bill Duncan and Peter Loudon, the many volunteers and lovers of the sport have been working closely together on ensuring that the Mercure City of Perth Masters is another successful event.
I wanted to acknowledge everyone’s hard work and commitment and pass on my appreciation and thanks. Indeed the last few years’ finals have given us breathtaking closing moments which kept both the teams and spectators interest to the last stone.
I am sure the game will once again be played in the right spirit, excellent sportsmanship and outstanding Curling skills. I am very proud and honoured to be associated with the Masters and in being the main sponsor of this prestige event. I am looking forward to experiencing the match and presenting the trophy to the winning team.
Once again a very warm welcome to Perth and to Scotland.
General Manager, Mercure Perth Hotel
