Hamish Tait Trophy

The sixth annual bonspiel to commorate the contribution of Hamish Tait to Chartered Surveyors, Merchiston, Penicuik, and Watsonian curling clubs was contested on Saturday 29th November.  Each club fielded two rinks although Merchiston were augmented with two Penicuik players (Reg Dunbar & Iain Scott) and two of the Penicuik ‘Belles’ (Jean Lennie & Pam Ramsay) turned out to supplement the Surveyors.  Penicuik ran out winners on an aggregate score of +19, followed by Merchiston on -2, Watsonian on -3, and Chartered Surveyors on -14.  Penicuik was represented by Jim Ramsay, Keith Morris, Tom Alexander, and John Jacobs (+14); and by Walter Brown, Ken Hunter, Dave Carr, and Jim Cowper (+5).

Following the afternoon of sport, the participants ended an enjoyable occasion in a meal together in the club dining room at Murrayfield.
