It seems funny to be already looking forward to the end of the season, or indeed to next season. For our competitive junior curlers, the year will be over come Monday for all bar a few, once the Scottish Junior Championships, currently underway at Curl Aberdeen (see here), are over.
Those that didn't make it to Aberdeen may well already be thinking of the next curling year, and perhaps planning for one last fun event this season, the Dumfries Junior International for the Globe Trophy. Graham Sloan has been in touch to say that there are still a few places for the event, March 30 - April 1.
There are also places for the Speed Pairs, which has an interesting new format, three stones each with timed fifty-five minute games. The event is not restricted to juniors. £50 to enter, and winners take home £300. So are there any speedy curlers out there who are free on February 11 and 12? If so contact Graham.
