The 'overflow tent' was in place this morning for the beginning of the European Mixed Curling Championship at Greenacres!

Chief Umpire Dor Borthwick. That's Tom the piper in the background.

Dor held sway at the pre-event team meeting!

The twenty-four teams were piped on to the ice for the opening ceremony. Here are the Scots: David Edwards, Kerry Barr, Dillan Perras, Louise Wood.

The teams!

Andrew Ferguson-Smith (President ECF), Malcolm Richardson (Chairman of the LOC), Robbie Scott (President Royal Club), Brenda Macintyre (President Ladies Branch) as the event banner is acknowledged with the playing of Flower of Scotland.

'The ice is yours!'
