A slightly smaller field of 10 teams were mustered at Murrayfield for
the annual bonspiel which was held in the usual good spirits. Despite a
'blue light' injury to Pam Clark, Vice-President of Aberlady during the
first game (She was released from hospital that night and hopes to be
back on the ice with her new scalp staples next week!) the first round
was keenly contested. The defending champions, Haddington 1, started
off with a peel against the remnants of the Aberlady team but it was
Haddington 2 that went into pole position with a score of +5.

After a break for soup and sandwiches, they took to the ice with the top
billed match being the two leaders, Haddington 2 and Athelstaneford 1
(on a score of +4). Haddington got off to a great start and looked
'nailed in' for the overall win until in the final end the wheels came
off the bus and Athelstaneford bounced back with a 4. This was still not
enough to derail Haddington 2.
We therefore issue our congratulations to Haddington 2 and, over post
match drinks, watched President Dave Munro present himself and his team
the ELCO Cup and associated silverware.
Congratulations are also due to Yester 1 who came in 3 shots behind for
second place and an extremely creditable third place went to the 3 man
Aberlady team, of Morgan & Sandy Nicoll, John Good and Pam Clark, who were a further 1 shot behind.
