Due to the Ice rink being closed we have missed 3 dates in the Clachan Cup. A minor change to the end of the current scheduled dates will ensure that the three teams play each other 4 times for the Cup, rather than the original 6.
The committee has agreed that this is the easiest outcome since it is unlikely we would be able to secure additional dates during April. Please see the attached Adobe file with the changes. Anne and Chris need to play each other on 7th and 24th March.
Clachan Cup revised schedule 2017
There have been a few changes to times and one date change (March 7th) for the Clachan Cup so please make sure your diaries are up to date. Either download the electronic version or here is a document containing the team names and dates/times.
Although all the team information and dates are on this website, here is a printable version in an adobe file. Pages 2-9 contain all the club teams and dates and pages 10-12 contain the external fixtures and teams (there are a few gaps on page 11, sorry but Lorna is still trying to make sense of it all!).
Drymen Curling Club will compete in the following external competitions in 2016/17 :-
Robert Paterson Shield
Forth and Endrick Knockout ( Jim Carswell Cup)
Gordon Mitchell Rosebowl
Province Points Competition.
The fixture dates for these competitions are now on the club calendar. Further information is available on the Forth and Endrick Province website.
With the opening bonspiel only two weeks away, I hope everyone’s looking forward to the new season. After a lot of negotiation with the Peak, we now have our final calendar for the year. Please check it as there have been several changes, with many of the late sessions now changed to earlier times. As always, you can download the calendar to your outlook diary.
The next “come and try” evening is on 12th September, please let our Secretary (Archie) have the names of any person you know is interested.
Looking forward to catching up with everyone on the 8th September!
Time has flown and we need all members to complete the Membership Application Form as soon as possible since we need to book ice before the end of April 2016. Please select the item at the top of the screen and follow the instructions. Everyone needs to do this – unless you do not intend to play in any games next season!! If you have any problems please ring Lorna Young (see your membership list).
Held on 19th January 2016 the evening was, as usual, hotly contested with emotions running high. The evening ended with the Gents winning (not again, I hear you say) with 12 shots to 2. The Gents team was lead by Andrew Kinninmonth with Jim Bilsland, Alan Brunger and Stevie Martin. The ladies, who required a gin and tonic to aid recovery, were lead by Alexis Easton with Anne Ewing, Lorna Young and Janet Simpson. Oh well, there’s always next year!
