I dropped in to the Lanarkshire Ice Rink, Hamilton, yesterday to see a little of the play in the Under-17 event there, the fourth of the Royal Club U17 Slam competitions. Twenty-four teams on the ice!
You can find all the scores here.
That's Gregor Cannon above.
Mhairi Paul is in the head, Lynn Paul and Kirsty Sloan the sweepers.

This is the Ross Whyte team in action. Chris Howat is behind the hair, Zack Stewart is nearest the stone and Fraser Kingan is the other sweeper.
Amy MacDonald is in the hack, with Eilidh ready to sweep. The team were all the way from Elgin to compete at Hamilton.

Here's another of Cameron.
