Good to see this Russian senior team at the Pertrofac Aberdeen City Open. They are competing in the BLUE section. Can you spot the odd one out. L-R: Oleg Badilin, Billgey Gibbski, Sergey Korolenko and Sergey Melnikov (skip).
Sergey Melnikov and Angus Robertson
Soren Jensen (aka Shuffle). Now, what happened next? Did -
1) His hat fall off and foul the stone?
2) Claire Sloan knock it off with her brush?
3) Soren jump up, run after the stone, join in the sweeping, and was still short?
If you picked 3), then you were correct!
