Colin Dick, Lindsay Gray, Ally Fraser and Ian Copland, who won the Royal Club's U-17 Grand Slam last season, together with Anna Sloan, Lauren Gray, Rhiann Macleod and Caitlin Barr, who were the highest-up girls' rink, set off today for the World Curling Federation's Summer Camp in Fussen, Germany. The trip was the prize for the Slam event which comprised four under-seventeen competitions in different rinks in its first successful season.
The Scots will join more than one hundred other young curlers from all over Europe. Instruction at the camp will cover areas such as delivery analysis and development, team communication, strategy, training drills and practice plans, sweeping, ice reading, stone matching, mental preparation and season planning.
Inverness ACDO Lynne Fraser and soon to be the RCCC Development Manager, Judith McFarlane, will attend the camp as coaches.
