History

Drymen Curling club was founded in 1830

Some very early curling results may be found here dating from 1856

In 1930 the Duke of Montrose celebrated the centenary of the club as reported here in the Glasgow Herald.

A bit of history from 1978 when there was a debate about building a curling rink in Drymen by Hugh Fraser.  You can see a letter printed in the Glasgow Herald here.  These is also an old article from the Herald on the subject.

    We need the older members and ex members to contribute to the history. Perhaps we contact them to see what they have. Old photos documents and memories would make the history really interesting.

    Here is some more history it would be good to include in the history section. Does anyone have any artefacts from the centenary? See this Glasgow Herald article below
