As I was arriving at Curl Aberdeen on Sunday, several club curlers were heading down the road to Forfar for the RCCC Area 9 Top Ten Team Challenge. Sponsored by Ferguson Oliver, the format of the Top Ten Challenge is unique. Twelve clubs competed as rinks, triples and pairs in the first three sessions. Then four players nominated by their club competed in the final hotshots session. It all lead for a fun event.
Fothringham CC were the winners with Dundee CC second and Letham Grange third.
Mike Ferguson says, "I think this style of competition could easily grow and should be used by other ice rinks."
There's more about the event on the centre's blog here. This has been the first season under Mike's ownership, and by all accounts the rink has moved forward. And I should point out that Forfar Young Curlers Club has its own website here.
