    No changes as Team Scotland 2009 announced

    Bob Cowan, in his Curling Today blog, reports the announcement of Team Scotland 2009. There's no change from the team that tied for last place at 3-6 in Sursee, Switzerland inn 2008.

    The same players competed as Great Britain in the recent Richmond Cashspiel: Michael McCreadie (skip), Aileen Nielson, Tom Killin, Jim Sellar and Rosemary Lenton, with coach Tom Pendreigh. [Read more on the Scottish selection]

    I think the CANADIAN team is

    Armstrong (for sure)
    Neighbour (for sure)
    Forrest (for sure)
    Gaudet (for sure...if a second female)
    Yizek......team that was tried in Richmond, probably to give Armstrong a look at Yizek.

    Don't think for a minute, that the final spot will be determined without asking Armstrong

    I guess Angie has pissed somebody off! Don't be any good at anything and pissed off the coaches, nice to see the same things happen elsewhere as it does here.

    Angie Malone, who played lead on the silver medal team in Torino, has been facing some health challenges which may have affected her status with the British Paralympic program though I do not know that as a fact. She did, however, skip the winning team at the British Open at the end of November - see blog post for November 30.

    Calls to the eight candidates are in the process of being made and not everyone has been contacted as of early Thursday morning, so no announcement until that happens.
