There are thirty-one teams playing in the B Divisions of the Le Gruyere European Curling Championships in Aberdeen this week. And the Curl Aberdeen rink has a real buzz about it. The blog got there this morning, and here are a few photos which give no more than a flavour of the event. Enjoy - I know I did, being there and being part of it all, if only for a short time!
And the secret? It doesn't cost anything to get in! There are lots of really attractive curlers to watch, and the women's teams are half bad either!
