When Murrayfield hosted the International Junior Curling Club Bonspiel last season, the organisers made a profit, thanks to all the financial support the competition garnered from sponsors, clubs and individuals. This legacy has allowed two teams from Murrayfield to travel to this year's competition in Geising, Germany. A girls' team (Karina Aitken, Sophie Sinclair, Laura Barr and Hannah Findlay) and a boys' team (David Baird, James Baird, Gavin Barr and Callum McLean) fly out tomorrow.
There's another Scottish team in the draw from Ayr - Aileen Rennie, Shaun Rennie, Andrew Maitland and Robert Alner.
There's two English teams among the sixteen in the event, skipped by Ben Fowler and Lucy Sparks.
What a great opportunity for these young curlers to play in this fun and friendly event which began in 2003 with the aim of bringing together junior club curlers from across the globe to compete and socialise together.
