The March Scottish Curler was published at the end of last week and I would hope that all subscribers have received their copy, and have enjoyed what's inside.
That's David Kelly on the front cover, competing in the House of Bruar Scottish Senior Championship at Hamilton. This was Richard Gray's pic of course, and there's lots more of Richard's pics from the Seniors, the Juniors, the Scottish and the Gold League in the magazine. Plus all the usual features.

I'm still in Finland of course, but I hear news from home that Rhona Martin has been appointed to take over from Nancy Murdoch as the RCCC's Performance Development Coach. Nancy is moving on to become one of British Curling's Olympic coaches. Rhona's appointment is for two years.
Rhona is currently employed as West Area Institute Curling Coach. Her new role will see her take on lead responsibility for both the National and Regional Academy programmes as well as the role of National Junior Coach. Rhona will take up her new post on April 1, on her return from the Ford World Women's Championships in Vernon where she is coaching Gail Munro’s Scottish team.
Rhona says, “I am delighted to get the chance to lead these already successful programmes and work with a great group of talented curlers to help them reach the highest levels in the sport.”
Thanks to Copey for the cover scan! The pic of Rhona is courtesy of the RCCC.
