My name is Bob Cowan and I have been Editor of the Scottish Curler magazine for five years.
Over the coming summer months the team will be setting up the Curling Today website, and this blog will tell you how we are getting on. Curling Today will be the online partner of the Scottish Curler magazine, a print publication that has been around since 1954!
What will be the aims of Curling Today? It will promote the sport of curling, and be an independent voice for the sport, just like the magazine. It will inform and (hopefully) entertain. Particularly, the website (and this blog) will bring news faster than the magazine can, and feature competition reports and photographs. It will focus on Scotland's curling teams and their sponsors! The website will complement the magazine, not replace it.
So, if you are interested in the sport of curling and feel that curlers in Scotland should have an independent voice, we'll be looking for your support.
The 2006-07 season has just finished. The May 2006 Scottish Curler, the last issue of the season, is at the printers.
Have a great summer. The Scottish Curler team is already looking towards next season!
