Putting together the Scottish Curler magazine is very much a team effort, and I continue to be grateful for all the help I get each month from the 'team'. The more observant of Curling Today watchers will have noticed recent posts, not by me, but by 'Christines' - aka the magazine's depute editor Christine Stewart. Curling Today is a team effort too!
Curling Today will be at the European Championships in Fussen! Check Curling Today often for reports and photos from the event which begins on Saturday.
The December Scottish Curler magazine has been printed and is set to go into the mail to subscribers early next week. Don't forget there is a thread on the Scottish Curling Forum looking for feedback and suggestions about the magazine. And if you are not a subscriber, details are on the magazine's main website here.
Incidentally, the Scottish Curling Forum is close to reaching one hundred registered members. As an incentive to sign up, Sandy Morton from Millport has crafted a wooden 'wee curling stone' which will go to one lucky curler, drawn from all registered users, when the magic 100 is reached. Registration is free, there are no catches, and you will not receive junk mail. Those behind the Forum just want as much discussion as possible on all aspects of the sport.
Incidentally, the wee stone is made from zebrano wood and is about five inches across.
