April's Scottish Curler magazine was published last week and is in the mail to subscribers. On the cover are our Junior Ladies who won the World Junior Championship in Ostersund, Sweden, last month. There's a report and a photo spread from this event as well as coverage of the inaugural World Mixed Doubles and the World Seniors at Vierumaki.
The Editorial describes how even the World Curling Federation can be completely illogical. In Behind the Glass, Copey talks about, in his own inimitable way, the use of statistics at the Scottish Championships. Christine Stewart describes her first visit to a Canadian Brier Championship and John Brown reveiws the history of the Four Nations competition. The Abbotsford Curling Society is Club of the Month. The Quality of your Stones is the title of the Historical Bit feature.
Mike Ferguson, soon to stand down as Royal Club Chairman, gets the chance to say goodbye. He reflects on the problems facing our governing body, and the significant steps being taken in response.
Plus the regular Curling World, Sweepings, Hoggie, Letters and The Extra End features. The only thing missing is any comment on what happened in Vernon. April had already gone to press when that story broke! I wonder if there might be something about it in next month's magazine, the last of the season?
