Another Royal Club masterclass was held at the Lanarkshire Ice Rink, Hamilton, yesterday. The first was at Kinross in December, described here. The objective of a Royal Club Masterclass is to let club curlers experience something of what performance players are taught and learn during their training sessions.
The Hamilton masterclass was organised by RCCC Development Manager Judith McFarlane with Jim Morrison, the local ACDO. Coaches on the day were Lynn Cameron, Nancy Murdoch, Lynne Robertson, Claire Milne and Logan Gray.
