Maggie Wilson

I'm sure there is a rule in the Royal Club rulebrook that says something about falsely representing oneself! (Winner in the Swiss Curler of the Day category may have to be investigated!)

Dionne wonders if she delivers the stone at this angle, could she get through the hole!

Normal delivery seemed the best option. You know, the great thing about 'open' curling is that it matches young up-and-coming talent like Dionne ......

.... against the 'older curler'. Here, for example, Barton Henderson, Scottish Champion skip thirty-two years ago!

Who he?

"A study in determination." Billy Henderson. (Team staged a comeback to beat the young curlers at the last end!)

The important thing to notice in this photo is where Ross Bartlett is. I guess if you are the only guy in the team, you let the others get on with the decision making! Rosemary, Alison and Lianne work on their options!

"You know Claire, we should apply to join the Straw Dogs Curling Club. (Paul Stevenson, President, apparently. Ed.)
