Today seems a nice time to acknowledge the contribution from a couple of guys to the tour. They were with us on the journey through the preparations and practices but regrettably had to withdraw from the trip.
Ian is a farmer from Balbeggie in Perthshire. He was our original Choirmaster and Entertainments guru who prepared the songbook and also had a hand in the development of the tour logo and badge. Ian curls with Glendoick Curling Club.
Frank joined in the fun and the building excitement at tour practices. He is from Edinburgh where he is a Chartered Accountant by profession and a business turnround specialist. He is also a Councillor, City of Edinburgh, and Deputy Council Leader. Frank curls with Athelstaneford Curling Club in East Lothian.
Suffice to say they are in our thoughts as we wend our way across the States. Best wishes to you both.
