Kerry is skipping her own team again this year and has made a strong start in the Scottish Ladies Championship with a 4-1 record after the first weekend at Dumfries.

Gina Aitken, Karina Aitken and Laura Barr
Karina and Laura are playing in the same team this season and have safely qualified for the Scottish Junior Ladies Championship. They had a great victory over the event's favourite team skipped by Jennifer Martin.
Gina Aitken skipped her team to four straight victories to safely qualify for the finals.
Gavin, who plays in David Baird's young team, had an agonising loss in their last "winner-takes-all" game against Robert Tait. They were 6-3 up after six ends and peels with hammer coming home, but lost a 2 in the tenth end. Old people like me say things like "you have plenty of time yet", but that doesn't make the loss any easier, so bad luck to the boys and better luck next time.
