Leswalt 150th Anniversary Bonspiel


Congratulations to Our President Liz Nicoll and her team of Morgan, John (Good) and Graeme who travelled to Stranraer to take part in the celebratory bonspiel of the Leswalt club, on Saturday 29-10-11.
There were 20 teams from all round the country taking part, and our squad took to the ice at 10.30 in the morning.  Despite the ice being very challenging, with slight frost, some fast patches and some areas of fall back Morgan managed to skip us against a very experienced Leswalt side to an impressive score to nil.  The Leswalt skip advised that he had been curling for 50 years and that was the first time he had been grannied (wish I had been so lucky).

Our second match was against our previous opponents son and current President of Leswalt.  This was a much tighter match, but Aberlady still ran out the winners, losing only one end, although that definitely flattered our team.
Following the Bonspiel was a Grand Dinner at which Aberlady were awarded the overall prize and John Good offered thanks on behalf of all the competing teams.
