Ice and a Slice 2011

Have you put a new 2011 calendar up yet? Or are you waiting to buy one in the January sales? Don't be so mean!

I suggest you get in touch with Lynn Cameron and donate to her Children with Leukaemia charity cause for a copy of Ice and a Slice 2011. Some of Scotland's well kent curlers have stripped off for a 'glamour' calendar with a difference. Lynn says, "The calendar is a shining example of men who would go the extra mile to raise money for a children's charity."

The charity's website is here: Children with Leukaemia.

Lynn will be running the London marathon again in April to raise money for this cause. Contact her at: lynny999 at The calendars should also be on sale at many ice rinks.

Here are some descriptions of the 2011 calendar. "Pornographic," The Sun. "Educational," The Guardian. "With bodies like these, Scottish curling is in good hands." The Curling News.

Personal testimonials include 'disgusting' (icegranny, Maybole), 'hilarious' (Skip Cottage, Wamphray), 'beautiful, beautiful' (redhandle, Kinross), 'perfection' (Lynn Cameron), 'erotic' (curlerbored, Canada), 'insulting' (anonymous), 'primitive' (curler2, USA), 'stimulating' (onthehog, The Netherlands), 'more crack than was confiscated in the whole of Scotland last year' (stonethecrows, England), 'an insult to animals' (donkeylover, Ireland), 'I fancy July' (Fiona, Hamilton), 'It will make 2011 much better' (onthepoppy, Millport), 'I wish it was in colour then I could see their rosy cheeks' (welovecurling, Cairnie House).

You will need to part with £10 (minimum) to form your own opinion, and see the other naked curlers featured each month!

Just as an example, January (pictured above) shows (too) much of Graham Shaw and Robin Niven. Graham is on a horse in the main pic (I have been reliably informed he had difficulty getting off), and Robin is doing something with a leek. It's captioned 'Spot the Stallion!' Wonderful, wonderful.

Brad Askew took the super photos in the calendar, and each month has its commercial sponsor. Well done to Lynn, to Brad, and all her models.

Happy New Year to everyone!

CCTV cameras at Forfar 'caught bonny' Jackie Lockhart (herself a former calendar girl in Ana Arce's Fire on Ice), Pat Lockhart and Claire Milne studying the 2011 Ice and a Slice calendar. The whistle blower who sent me this pic wonders which month was creating all the interest!
