The Generation Game

Guess who I met at the Lockerbie Rink today? David Aitken (left) and Robin Halliday were teammates together in the 80s, and in 1986, in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, with Peter Smith and Harry Reilly as their front end, they won the Uniroyal World Junior Curling Championship, see here. They beat Canada's Kevin Martin in the final.

So what brought them together at Lockerbie today?

Rachael Halliday and Gina Aitken, their daughters, were playing together with Mhairi Baird (skip) and Katy Richardson, in the Lockerbie U-17 competition.

More photos and the result of the competition by Monday.

The results so far are on the RCCC website here.
