Exhibition at Turnberry

Here's David with part of a small exhibition he put on at the Turnberry Resort, on the occasion of the World Curling Federation's inaugural Annual Congress, see here.

Using items from his own collection, David showed the evolution of the curling stone, a collection of medals, illustrations, and a variety of stones of diverse origin (Crawfordjohn, Carsphairn, Furnace, Creetown, Blantyre Black, Burnock Water, Tinkernhill, Lednoch, to name a few), illustrating that curling stones used on outside ice in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries did not all come from Ailsa Craig!

Many of the WCF delegates found time to visit the exhibition and talk with David about the history of the sport.
