Points Competition

The Points competition was as usual a friendly, sociable event with everyone rising to the challenges that points brings! It was good to be reminded of the variety of shots available to us when playing our league competitions.
10 of us played and the worthy winner was Ronnie Peat with Jim Paxton coming a very close second. Jim Lindsay was 3rd.
Campbell valiantly fought to defend his title but despite his best efforts came up a short!

First Games of Autumn League

Our season got off to a flying start last night on keen swingy ice.

Mara, with her team of Campbell Kay, Joe Miller and Jim Paxton had to fight back from 5-1 down to Bill Inglis, Robin White and Mabel Hildebrand. Scores of 2, 4 and 2 did the trick and she finished ahead by 9 shots to 7.

On the other sheet it was great to see Dave Pittam curling again, after his lengthy fight back to fitness, and also to welcome Will Morton to the club. Dave and Will were joined by Katie Hodge and Jim Lindsay in Margaret Morrison's team.

Margaret and Richard had obviously decided that  they didn't want the challenge of playing against each other in the first game of the season, preferring to spend the time in sunnier climes. In Richard's absence, Alison Young, Ronnie Peat, Katie Hodge and Steve Gillies got the breaks to score seven shots in ends two and three and finished up by 11 shots to 3.

Next games are Monday 1st October at 7.45, when Mara takes on Mike McNeil and Bill Inglis plays Richard Morrison.
