If you ever visited the Letham Grange rink, you will have, as I do, happy memories of Jim Duff, the genial manager. One of the great personalities of the sport, Jim passed away in the early hours of this morning.
Several blogallies have been in touch with the sad news. One writes, "He will be greatly missed by lots of folk around the world. One of curling's characters and a Scottish gentleman. End of an era!"
