With this cold spell of weather, I was wondering this morning on the Scottish Curling Forum if anyone had been curling outside. Mairi Milne was quick to respond and sent these pics as proof. Thanks Mairi!
We're in Inverness on January 3 at the four outdoor rinks owned and maintained by the Highland Curling Club. (Not sure if they are concrete or tarmac base). That's the curling hut behind.
Ian MacDonald's stylish delivery!
No fancy painted circles, just rings scraped with a tee-ringer.
Note the 'dolly' which marks the tee.
Immortalised on the Curling Today blog! Well done everyone and thanks Mairi for making my day by sending these!

(Editor /at/ scottishcurler.demon.co.uk is where to send them!)
