Development news

It's all happening in the world of Area Curling Development Officers during these summer months! For the first time, Forfar Indoor Sports will have its own ACDO when Jill Macdonald (above) takes up her post, see here. And a replacement has been found for Jim Buchanan who has retired at the Borders Rink in Kelso. Liz Cullen will be in post for the start of the new season.

Morven Marwick takes up her position as the Inverness and Highland Curling Development Officer next week.

Applications for the vacant post at Kinross have just closed, and interviews will be later this month.

The Royal Club's Development Manager Judith McFarlane heads up the team which also includes:
Claire Milne (Perth and Dundee)
Graham Sloan (Dumfries)
Marion Murdoch (Lockerbie)
David Horne (Braehead)
Jim Morrison (Lanarkshire)
Logan Gray (Stirling)
Stewart Sutherland (Waterfront)
Laura Morris (Curl Aberdeen)
Gordon McIntyre (Greenacres)

Some of these posts are full-time, some part-time, and how they are funded varies from rink to rink. Contact details for all the Development Officers can be found here.
