Provost’s welcome

It is with the greatest of pleasure that I welcome all the competitors, officials, families and supporters to the Fair City of Perth for this year’s Mercure City of Perth Masters.

On behalf of Perth & Kinross Council, I am delighted to welcome all competitors, officials, families and supporters to the 44th Perth Masters tournament. A very warm welcome to all teams joining us from the Czech Republic, Germany, Norway, Switzerland, Russia, Sweden, China, Korea, Canada, Holland, Italy and Scotland.

We are delighted to have high-calibre teams from across the world joining us. Our ambitious new format for 2020 brings together the Perth men’s and women’s World Curling Tour events into one new and dynamic tournament. We are excited for a great weekend of curling ahead of us and the first major curling championships of the year taking place in Curling’s historical home of Perth and Kinross.

I would like to extend you all my best wishes for an enjoyable weekend and I wish all competitors every success – may the best team win!

Dennis Melloy

Provost of Perth and Kinross.
