End of the Season at Forfar

Forfar Indoor Sports ran a very successful Top Ten competition on Sunday last, with ten clubs from Area 9 participating. Mike Ferguson reports, "The format of rinks, triples, pairs and hotshots worked really well combining to make fast, energy packed competition lasting all day (and into the night). A special mention needs to go to Banchory CC for making the trip down from North Eastern province, hopefully more will make the effort next year. All in a really great end of season atmosphere with super curling and loads of social activity. Well done to all the teams who passed on the brilliant spring sunshine to support the competition."

The competition was won by Evenie Water CC, with Dundee CC second, and Forfar CC third. Photos are here.

I was interested to see that Forfar is hosting an Ice World 'Dancing on Ice' extravaganza on April 7 on the four-sheet rink with staged seating on the ice, and VIP tables in the lounge. There will be a curling demonstration as a warm up to the main skating event. With around 400 tickets sold, the hope is that the demonstration might attract new curling recruits.
