October 2013

Open to LCA curlers in District 1 - Centres 1 and 2 and based on points. One eight-end game. Minimum of two teams per club required to be eligible for prize money. (added January 1988). This trophy was put into play in 1942, and in 1943 Mrs. Anderson of the St. Lawrence Curling Club donated a trophy to replace the Edinburgh Trophy. The Ladies of St. Lawrence Curling Club (donor's) name to be engraved on the trophy as they had won the LCA Granite Competition the first year ir was inaugurated.

Jackson Ladies Curling Association Granite Trophy to be engraved on the other side. The trophy was originally limited to play by Island clubs. The trophy was won by a team with high percentage score with no team rating, and was played on the same lines as the Edinburgh Trophy with a hidden partner from the same club. In 1964, clubs were asked to make up rinks on a point system, no more that ten points per rink (4 for a skip, 3 for a third, etc.) Each team had a hidden partner from the same club. Combined scores of these pairs determined winners. This was a one game event, 12 ends. 

Since 1967 it has been played as Grand Match, thereby a Club winning trophy, total scores of the teams being added and an average percentage win being worked out by the Committee. The point system is also followed in making up the rinks. The points per team have now been increased to eleven points.

A fixed portion of the registration fee is donated to the Sandra Schmirler Foundation.
