Applications are invited for a Part-time Curling Development Officer for the Waterfront rink in Greenock. Applicants must have 'a high level of motivation and commitment to the development of the sport' and will be responsible for developing and promoting involvement and participation in curling, at all levels, throughout Greenock and Inverclyde.
The full details of the job, which arises because of David Horne's move to Braehead, may be found on the RCCC website here. Closing date is February 15.
Moving on to arguably the Royal Club's most successful development initiative, Development Manager Judith McFarlane reports that the camp scheduled for this summer is full with 28 participants and she has provisionally booked a second camp to run from August 3-8. If you are reading this and know of any young curler (aged 12-17) who would like to participate then more information can be obtained from Cairnie House. All of which gives me an excuse to post a couple of photos from last summer!
The summer camp is based at the Galleon rink in Kilmarnock and the Dolphin Centre at Culzean (above) and mountain biking was just one of many off-ice activities last year.
Sweeping practice is hard work!
It's not all hard work. Jennifer Paul in a fun delivery drill!
