Dumfries keeps on curling
Dumfries Lions recently held their 22nd Charity Curling Tournament at Dumfries Ice Bowl. Twenty two teams of four players from Scotland and Wales took part in a friendly but very competitive tournament involving 6 games over 2 days.
It was heartening to see a good number of junior curlers aged between 8 and 15 taking part and doing so well. They certainly gave some very experienced players a big fright. The competition split into High Road and Low Road after the first day and juniors played in the winning teams in both sections. A good weekend for Dumfries Young Curlers.
The proceeds of the Tournament were in excess of £2000 and this will go the International Youth Centre being hosted by Dumfries Lions next year.
