In my final Scottish Curler editorial of the season I stated that the Royal Club Masterclasses were an initiative that the RCCC had got right. The objective of a Masterclass is to let club curlers experience something of what performance players are taught and learn during their training sessions. There were two last season. The first was at Kinross in December 28, described here. A second (see here) was held at the Lanarkshire Ice Rink, Hamilton, on January 27. Both were enjoyed by all who attended.
I am pleased to see then that two more will be held next season. Curl Aberdeen will host the first on Saturday November 8, 2008. Have a look at what the day involves here. The cost is £30 and includes lunch. Registration forms can be downloaded.
Ayr Ice Rink will be the venue for a second Masterclass on Sunday, December 7.
