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!

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!

The Ladies v Gents competition was played last week at Stirling. The Ladies team was Skip Anne Ewing and her team of Lorna Young, Janet Simpson and Anna Deacon. The Gents were led by Fraser Robb, and his team of Stevie Martin and Russell Easton. Despite a three point penalty for only having three players, the Gents fought a hard battle to win by one point, with the result going down to the last end!
