At this year's Moray Province A.G.M the idea of replacing the annual Mixed Pairs competition with the relatively new discipline of Mixed Doubles was suggested. The idea seemed to be welcomed by some and dismissed by others.(surprise??!)
With entries dwindling for the pairs in recent years ( only ten teams entered last year compared with thirty 5 years ago) change is needed to revitalise this once healthy competition.
As yet there has been no announcement either way, but for those of you who regularly participate in the pairs, or who might fancy participating in mixed doubles, if it becomes a province competition, and have never seen it played here is the official World Curling Federation demonstration video for you to get a feel for the game and its rules.
