Colin Dick, Anna Sloan, Lauren Gray and Struan Wood won the Atholl U-17 event, sponsored by Ventrolla Tayside. Colin and his team beat Thomas Sloan, Blair Fraser, Scott Fraser and Jamie Fraser 5-1 in the final of the fourth RCCC Slam of the season, at the Pitlochry rink December 28-29.
In the Low Road final, Alan Inch, Kyle Waddell, Andrew Ballantyne and Craig Waddell beat David Miller, Gary Cannell, Fraser Davidson and Grant Richmond.
Today's special mention goes to the young team from Forfar, skipped by thirteen year old Duncan Menzies with David Jenkins, Alistair Stewart and Angus Dowell, for finishing third in the Low Road. It's what these U-17 events are all about - to give an opportunity for our young teams to gain competition experience. Great to see.
