Although a couple of League games were played on Friday evening, our 2015-16 season got off to a formal start with the Opening Bonspiel on Sunday afternoon. Each of eight teams played single ends against six of the other teams, ensuring a good mix on the afternoon. Players who had not previously ventured onto the ice this season, strove to reach the peaks attained during the previous season (with mixed success). After what seemed like a busy afternoon, members repaired to the bar and then partook of an enjoyable meal in the Murrayfield Club Room.
Success went to Team Ramsay who won on +11 shots. Team Hunter were second on +9, and Team Anderson just pipped Team Brown to take third place on +1. The booby prize went to Team Lennie.
Thanks go to sponsor Ian Neil, and to Barbara Gillespie and her colleagues on the Social Sub-committee for organising the event.
