Province Knockout

Well done to our young team of Julia Mackay, David Wyllie, Justyna Konowrocka and Daniel Peart, who were pitted against a very strong Haddington Rink in the semi-Finals.  Unfortunately in this instance we ended coming second.  (It should be noted that Haddington then went on to win the Final.)

Thirds Competition

Last night, on very quick new year ice the thirds competition got underway with defending champion John Niven taking on Cathy Macleans rink.  This was a tight game all the way with some excellent shots being played by both teams.  The end result, fittingly, was a peel at 5 - 5.

Trophy Competition - Final Results

Congratulations to Team Dale Callander who have taken their second trophy of the season and secured the first Steak Pies.  Dale, ably assisted by David Wyllie, Pam Clark and Rosie Clark lost only 2 games and finished 3 points clear, giving them a great start in the Peter Allen Shield.
Runner-up, also for the second time this season was 'new' skip, Julia Mackey with her lackeys, Stan Howard, John McOmish and a succession of 'rota' players.

Christmas Bombshell

Another successful night with Dale complaining about Julia and Derek attacking the game like a pair of sharks (the score was peeled, so I thing he complaineth too much).  Meanwhile in the gentlemens game, Mike beat John G by 6.5 points to 4.
Congratulations to our Bombshell winners of Mike, Karen and Pam.

COME & TRY CURLING - report

What Can Friends Make?
All nine first-timers at a very busy Aberlady TryCurling session on 3rd November had been encouraged to come by one or more of our members.
That says a lot for the persuasive skills of the members who did the recruiting, and their enthusiasm for the sport. There was at least one common response from the friends we asked: “Curling? Yes I’ve seen it on tv. Sure, I’d like to give it a go”.
President Pam Clark introduced the Club’s team of herself, David Wyllie, Julia Mackey and John Good. The newcomers stepped on to the ice with smiles which, thankfully, lasted without hesitation or deviation - but with lots of repetition – all the way through the session.
The only moment of contention was when the result of the last end was declared, as some folk wondered if there had been a plot to ensure that both teams had the same final overall score. Even if that had been the case, all players happily shook hands and joined the President for a cuppa in the Clubrooms.
We gave participants what-to-do-now sheets. The very good news is that within a few days ________ had committed to one of the Beginners’ Courses at CurlEdinburgh.
Here’s hoping that before too long we’ll all welcome some new members ready to curl in our Club.

John Good.

Trophy at 50%

With Dale taking a decisive win over Team Maguire the first phase of the Trophy Competition was completed.  With 3 teams all on 3 wins and 1 loss, only three ends separate first from third.
Team Callander leading the way with 16 ends won and the Maguire squad one end behind on 15.  Team Mackey lurk ready to strike  only two ends behind that on 13.
With Mike Wood having been absent for a large part of the first round, he cannot be discounted and Team Good is also in a strong position (ie propping up the rest of the league) and is bound to mount a comeback in the lead up to Christmas.
Round 2 commences today !!
