Thanks to our President, David McIntyre for reports on the following three events.
On Saturday night we had our quiz night with over 75 attending. A good night was had by all with Jack McCorkells team of Aileen McCorkell, Linda Thompson, Norman Lawrie, Wendy Hollingsworth and Doug Hollingsworth (pictured above) being worthy winners.
Quiz mistress Bella Kennedy had us all scratching our heads with one of the rounds being the national anthems of Curling countries!
On Friday afternoon we had an intercity away against Lanarkshire Curling Club. We won two games but lost the third heavily and as the match was based on shots up we lost overall.
I won’t tell you the scores but:-
Jennifer Mutter, Ernest Mutter, Janice Sutherland and Charles Sutherland won
Bert Andrew, Anne Kerr, Andrew Kerr and Moira Drummond won
Hubert Ireland, Wendy Hollingsworth, David McIntyre and Lillian McIntyre lost.
Sunday was our second Sunday bonspiel, sponsored by Anderson Crawford.
12 rinks took part with the rink skipped by our new Development Officer Scott Andrews winning all their games. Scott was ably assisted by Ewan Marr, Janice Sutherland and Michael Carruthers.
There was another undefeated rink skipped by Ernest Mutter who were second with two wins and a peel. Ernest’s rink was one short but played on with Linda McAulay and Bob Cherry playing three stones.
Third was Jim Wilson’s rink of Malcolm Rae, David McIntyre and Elizabeth Shaw who squeezed into third spot by dint of one end. They had two wins and one loss.
