As the opening of the curling season approaches, the Ice Technicians have been busy preparing the ice surface. Phil Martin took some photos of the stages involved in ice preparation at Dewars, in a week when the external temperatures made for some really challenging environmental conditions.
The new timing of the second session has been instigated in response to curlers finding that the ice surface significantly deteriorated in the latter stages of their game. By allowing the technicians an additional 15 minutes for preparation, every curler should experience the high quality of ice surface for which Perth is known.
