Saturday at Dumfries

Some more photos from the Ice Bowl Open at Dumfries today, Saturday. That's Alice Spence and Kimberley Smith from the Hannah Fleming team above.

David Smith will be skipping his Irish mixed team at the European Mixed Championship in Taarnby early October.

Maggie Wilson

Claire Dagen and Dionne Clark look after Maggie's stone.

John Graham

Here's John's team. L-R: John Graham, Gillian Graham, Margaret Laurie and John McCormick. Did I mention that the Ice Bowl Open is the first event in the Goldline Scottish Curling Tour, presented by British Curling Supplies?

And do YOU have a good excuse why you're not playing at Dumfries this weekend? Open curling. Any four curlers. Any age. Any gender. Any size, shape, experience.... whatever. Fun. Perhaps next year? Make it so!

Zak Stewart

Grant Hardie

Here's Grant's last stone of the final end, with the scores tied in this game between these two young sides. It finished fully in the eight foot for the win.

And here's the two teams. Back L-R: Grant Hardie, Ruaridh Whyte, Hamish Geyer, Ross Whyte. Front: Zak Stewart, Fraser Kingan, Sam Hall, Christopher Howat.

Organiser and the Dumfries ACDO Graham Sloan. What's that badge he's wearing.

Graham is 30 today! Altogether now, join in here, (11,770,000 can't be wrong!)

Euan and Ewan look after Craig Joiner's stone.

Here's the team. L-R: Craig Joiner, Adam Flint, Euan MacDiarmid and Ewan Maguire.

Frazer Hare, Robbie Dick, Jamie Strawhorn and Don Frame reached the Bruadar Scottish Championship tiebreakers last season. Favourites to win Dumfries tomorrow?

Duncan Gracie and Heather Morton. Duncan's team has its own blog. If you think you would enjoy an alternative approach to the more serious side of the curling world, then this blog is for you!

Here's Heather.
