Brad Askew was watching his charges for the Winter Youth Olympic Games in Austria next month.

And here they are in action. Skip Duncan Menzies hurries to help sweepers Rachel Hannen and Angharad Ward on Thomas Muirhead's stone. The mixed team are playing in the junior men's event, and lost their first game against Ross Whyte.

That's Struan Wood and Hamilton McMillan sweeping hard. Thomas Sloan was in the head. Good to see him back on the ice after his accident.
