This is absolutely the last word from yesterday at Ayr. It's a little photo essay to show what's so great about junior curling! The 'model' is Laura Ritchie who was playing third for Hamilton 1 with Andrew Ballantyne (skip), Sarah Wood and Scott Gibson. These are all real photos, as it happened! Enjoy.
"Hello. My name's Laura, and I'm just playing a little barrier weight round a guard. I have complete faith in my skip and sweepers to look after my stone once I let it go!"
"I think it's going to need swept..... "
"Oh come on skip, it's curling........ "
It's what makes junior curling the wonderful sport it is: passion and emotion!
Thanks to Laura for letting me post these pics.
