Scottish: Women's Final Underway

The teams are piped on for the final of the Co-operative Funeralcare Scottish Women's Championship this morning.

The teams are introduced. L-R: Gail Munro, Lyndsay Cumming, Katie Wright and Jodie Milroy. Eve Muirhead, Anna Sloan, Vicki Adams and Claire Hamilton.

Support for Team Munro.

The commentary team get set up earlier. Bob Kelly and losing semifinalist Jackie Lockhart. Jackie is getting advice from Performance Director Dave Crosbee. Dave is probably suggesting phrases that could be brought into her commentary which might please the new sponsors. Perhaps we might hear a lot about 'burying stones behind guards' and 'dead draws'. But let's hope there are not many 'burnt stones'!

Enough nonsense. The link to the webcast is here.

Earlier, members and coaches of the local junior club got to try out the championship sheet as the TV production put the finishing touches in place for the big games. That's James Davidson and Robin Brydone in the head above. James Hay, Callum Kinnear, Kerr Sands, Leeanne McKenzie and Conner Wilkie Milne were the other young curlers on the ice.
