This weekend's results

I think all of us that have curling websites have been looking over our shoulders recently given the hacker attack that has put CurlingZone off air for the past weeks.

Not that the problem to hit the Royal Club website home page has necessarily anything to do with hacks or viruses, but it appears that some members are having trouble accessing the home page and getting some sort of error message.

Kay Adams is looking into this problem but it is becoming a time consuming task to find the source of the error.

However, there is a workaround if you are just looking for results/standings from the mens' qualifiers this weekend. These pages are still accessible by going to Google and typing royalcaledoniancurlingclub (without the www/org and then accessing the relative pages from here for example, competitions or About RCCC for the tour stuff).

There doesn’t seem to be problems with these pages just the home page - and it is only affecting a few members. Kay and her team are doing their best to resolve the problem.
