ICA ladies’ NYC training camp

Katie and Ailsa

While Irish Ladies C League team members Jen Ward and Jacqui Barr were training in Scotland recently, skip Ailsa Anderson and vice-skip Katie Kerr managed to get in some training in New York.

Katie in action

Ailsa never travels far without her curling shoes and fortunately Katie’s Brooklyn based opposition were in need of a sub.

Although it was her first time playing arena ice outdoors, Ailsa reported that the ice was “interesting to say the least!”.

But a great game was had and big thanks to Curl NYC for allowing Ailsa to join in.

Down memory lane

We will have to concentrate on curling news very soon, so, as the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness –  and curling – looms, here is one more late summer look backwards.
