Curling prominent at Border Union Show

The Border Curling Development Group has been successful in raising funds from the National Lottery 'Awards for All' programme, which helps local communities. Thanks to this support, the Border curlers were able to have a stand at the Border Union Agricultural show last Friday and Saturday to promote our sport at the local Border Ice Rink, Kelso.

Border Area Development Officer Jim Buchanan reports a very successful two days. Those manning the stand were able to point to recent success. Well kent local curler Keith Prentice skipped his Scottish Senior Champion team to the World title in Edmonton in March.
