The first social fixture between the two clubs was played on Monday evening (29 Feb). Jim Ramsay skipped the Penicuik rink, with Ken Hunter, Dave Carr, and Ronnie Hope. The 37 Club rink was skipped by Mike Williamson, supported by Mike Wilkinson, Alastair Hay, and Eric Leslie.
The respective participants were all well known to each other and as a result the game, whilst competitive, was played in a most cordial spirit. Afterwards the players shared a refreshment together in the Edinburgh Curling Club Bar, engaging in general chat about curling and club matters. The discussion eventually touched on the future of this new fixture, and it was agreed that ice should be sought for a double rink match next season.
