Training: Marking Ice for Outdoor Curling

Posted on Tuesday, November 28, 2017 at 2:57pm

The RCCC’s Grand Match Committee are organising a training session on Saturday 9th December in Kinross from 10.30-12.00

The session will include learning the techniques for marking the ice with purpose built equipment, measuring the length of rinks and all relevant markings.

No previous experience is required, just bring warm and waterproof clothing (hats, boots and gloves) for being outdoors for a couple of hours.

The session will be led by Jim Paterson and will take place on the outdoor curling rink in Kinross. The outdoor rink is located across the Muirs Road from the Green Hotel and is accessed via the lane that leads to the Kinross Golf Club.  There is a car park 50 metres down the lane, behind the bowling green and the concrete curling rink is adjacent.
