Developments at Dumfries

Dumfries Ice Bowl have managed to secure funds to buy new stones for next season.

It is hoped that they will be delivered for the opening of the New Season at the Ice Bowl on the 1st September.

These stones were secured due to the massive impact Curling had at the Ice Bowl During the World Record attempt and the fundraising that was generated during it along with other funding applications.

Dumfries Ice Bowl will also be improving ice quality to match the quality of the new stones so if you want some top quality playing conditions and some early points for the tour standings then sign up to Dumfries Ice Bowl Open NOW.

Entries are being accepted and again there will be Cash Prizes for the winners.
