Summer Camp

Summer is camp time for junior curlers the world over. The WCF's well established junior camp went ahead in Fussen, July 4-10. The first of the Royal Club's own camps was held last week, and by all accounts was a great success.

This season, for the first time, a TEAM camp is being held in the Netherlands, at Zoetermeer. This gets underway today, with two Scottish sides in the mix (Forfar's Duncan Menzies, and a girls' team comprising Naomi Whyte, Maggie Wilson, Dionne Clark and Claire Dagen).

The organisers are Mark Neeleman, Shari Leibbrandt, Margrietha Voskuilen and Laurens van der Windt. The instructors include Kay Montgomery from Canada, Ole Ingvaldsen from Norway, Eeva Rothlisberger, the WCF's new development officer, and our own Judith McFarlane.

The Sweetlake camp has a website here, for photos and news.

This also gives me an excuse to point you all towards another music video featuring curling! The group is called HIT ME TV, and the song 'Not a Real Talent'! It was filmed at the Zoetermeer rink! Find it here, or click on the image below. Enjoy!
