Wheels Update

One of the great characters of our sport, Judy Mackenzie (above), has stood down from the committee of the Scottish Wheelchair Curling Association. Judy chaired her last AGM during the Scottish Championship at Curl Aberdeen last weekend. She has been involved with wheelchair curling for ten years and her commitment and enthusiasm was recognised by a specially commissioned award, which was presented by Sheila Swan on behalf of all SWCA members.

Judy has been succeeded in the chair of SWCA by Freddie Cumming of Stirling WCC.

As reported already (here), the championship was won by the Gregor Ewan team. That's them above (L-R) Jim Gault, Jackie Cayton, Gregor Ewan (skip) and Mike McKenzie. There's a full report here.

Mary Bell (on the left) from the Lockerbie wheelchair curling club received the Sportsmanship Award, as voted by the players, from Rosemary Lenton.

What's this above? Could a little bit of colour be creeping its way into wheelchair curling. Well done to the Angie Malone team!
