Many reading this will know that the Scottish Curler magazine has been published by Dunfermline Press since 1985. Reorganisation within the group has meant a change of name. The parent of the magazine is now the Clyde and Forth Press Group. One consequence of this is that the magazine now has its own website, particularly to facilitate the process of subscribing, and to make it easy to contact the publishers and editor online.
The address is www.scottishcurler.com. If you want to subscribe to the magazine you can download a pdf file of the subscription form which can be completed and returned in the regular mail with your cheque or credit card details. Soon, it will be possible to subscribe and pay online.
Please consider becoming a subscriber. Scottish curling needs an independent voice and the magazine can only continue if curlers support it. The first issue of the new season is currently being printed and will be available next week. Find the subscription form and costs here. If you are already a subscriber, thank you. How about giving a Scottish Curler subscription as a gift?
Another new website for you to bookmark is that set up by the curlers at Braehead. Find this here. Gary Macfarlane is the webmaster and he has posted lots of photos from the recent Curlathon on the site.
And we thought it was time that the Curling Today blog had a fresh look. Did you notice the new template? Do you like it?
