The event once again has the morbid Co-operative Funeralcare as the title sponsor. Dying to get started.
Due to the World Championships being held in Beijing, it has been requested by the RCCC that all of the competitors turn up with their passports so visa applications can get sorted and the eventual winners get to smog central on time.
|A view of the arena in Beijing? Maybe?|
So this is when and who we line up against at the Scottish Championships.
Warwick Smith - Monday 10th February 12pm
Logan Gray - Monday 10th February 8 pm
Lee McCleary - Tuesday 11th February 12pm
Ally Fraser - Tuesday 11th February 8pm
Moray Combe - Wednesday 12th February 12pm
Ewan McDonald - Wednesday 12th February 8pm
Grant Hardie - Thursday 13th February 12pm
John Hamilton - Thursday 13th February 8pm
Kyle Smith Friday - 14th February 12pm
I don't actually know if 12 noon is AM or PM, but it says 12pm on the RCCC website, so that is good enough for us!
We have not played any of the teams in our opening 5 games of the Scottish, so hopefully they are all going to be rubbish.
We will be making our way down to Perth for the Sunday evening practise where we have 10 minutes on each sheet to figure out what the stones are doing. I am sure Dave will have some procedure set out to make it all go smoothly.
This year we are staying in Forgandenny which is 6.8 miles from the rink and will take 15 minutes to drive.
|Making it easy for the groupies.|
|How much of a mess can Scott make of this place?|
|Looking pretty good!|
|Where Collie is in his element.|
We will try and get some blogging on the go during the championships, but it takes surprisingly longer than you would think to write. It also heavily depends on how much wifi is kicking about, we will try our best though!
Wish us luck!
