Due to clashes with holidays and school vacations we have taken the decision to POSTPONE our Pairs Competition.
We will try to arrange an alternative date for later in the season.
The draw for the Swan Trophy has now been added to the Fixtures Page.
The First Round will be against Mid Calder on Thursday 18-11-21 at 15.00 (3pm)
The Semi Final will be on Thursday 6th January 2022 @ 15.00 (3pm)
The Final will be on Thursday 13-1-22 @ 15.00.
Our teams are:-
M Wood, G Maguire, D Callander, R Clark, P Clark PLUS 2
If you would like to play, please let Mike Wood know asap.
Following a successful 'Practice' session at the weekend, all four rinks were out fro the first round of the Knockout Competition.
There were excellent wins for Julia's and David's rinks (That should have been Graeme's but he forgot to tell David that he was on holiday, but had arranged for a sub!).
Julia's game was against John Good's squad and was a pretty balanced affair, with the exception of one loose (for loose, read BIG !!!) end. The Wyllie squad did well to beat the powerful Callander quartet, although maybe made a bit easier without Graeme.
THE FINAL will be held on Friday 5th November at 6pm, when we can no doubt expect fireworks. (I'll get my coat on the way out.)
This season's syllabus has been added to the 'Fixtures' page. This has been amended since the issued syllabus and now includes the date for our Knockout Final (5th Nov at 18.00 in case you are interested and too lazy to click the page).
This online syllabus will continue to be updated as more information is received. Please take note of the revision dates on the 'live' syllabus.
The lights are green and it looks like we will be getting back to curling again soon.
We welcome Rosylynn Clark as our new President and she is joined by Julia Mackey as her Vice President. Pauline, is taking some time off curling and we are very grateful to Pam Clark who is standing in as our secretary (play nice, we need her to stay!)
We welcome Ian Campbell as a full playing member, Ian actually joined us last year but never got the chance to play ! We also welcome Susanne Udall as a reserve and I have abused my position and already arranged for her to sub in the Knockout game, which starts our season on 28 September. This means that our members can welcome both Ian and Susanne that night.
In the meantime, the website is going through it's spring clean.
COVID Precautions, pending an update of the Covid Risk Assessment, as long as we remain at or beyond 'Level 0' actual curling can be played as normal i.e. 2 sweepers. Although if anyone is unhappy with this please let their skips know and arrangements will be made to accommodate their fears and concerns.
Physical distancing, on and off ice is encouraged and the changing rooms will still have limited capacity, so arriving ready to change shoes and play is also encouraged.
Session times are still staggered and the one-way system will still be in operation ie separate entrance and exit doors.
Masks should still be worn, unless exempt, indoors EXCEPT when on ice or drinking/eating upstairs. It should be possible for each rink to share a table.
Fingers crossed for a smooth and full season without any hiccups.
