Midlothian Province Bonspiel

The annual Province Bonspiel was held on Monday 25 January.  Penicuik fielded three teams (a consequence of our Club size).  Ken Hunter skipped the first game, against our old friends Merchiston, with Ronnie Hope, John Glidden, and Reg Dunbar.  After a keen contest Penicuik ran out winners by 7 shots to 6.  The second game was against a strong Oxenfoord team; Jim Ramsay skipped with Jean Lennie, Andrew Lambie and Dave Carr.  Penicuik lost the game by a single shot.  The evening game against the Bank of Scotland was skipped by Walter Brown, with Dave Anderson, Roger Scott, and John Jacobs.  The final score in this game was 9 – 4 in favour of the Bank team.

Overall not so good, Penicuik ended the day being 5 shots down, yielding an aggregate score of -1.67.  The bonspiel was won by Carrington who ended the day with an aggregate score of +14.33 for their three rinks.
