Aviemore 1976


I'm sure a few members will remember the days, before the Moray Leisure Centre opened, when they had to travel south to Aviemore for a game of curling.  Obviously I am too young to remember this but I have heard many nostalgic tales, usually after a few drams at a Bonspiel, about the great rink at Aviemore.

Well today I came across a feature on 'Curling History'  regarding the 1976 World Junior Curling Championships that were held at Aviemore.  Bob Cowan has posted two very good clips on his site showing the highlights of key games from the competition, and there are a few Ballindalloch Curling Club members past and present featured in the footage. 

Please have a look at Bob Cowan's page here and see if you can spot the Ballindallochers!!!
