PENICUIK CURLING CLUB RECEIVE HUB FUNDING Penicuik Curling Club requested £240 through the Hub to enable the Club to buy 12 "Sliders". These will be used to enable prospective new members the opportunity to practice sliding out as they deliver a curling stone. The "Sliders"  which the club have purchased are various sizes and can be attached to the sole of a trainer so that the lead foot can slide out across the ice. This will help in coaching the correct delivery of a stone. The Club would like to thank the Hub for supporting this purchase.
