Midlothian Province Bonspiel 2018-19

The annual Province bonspiel was played across Monday 28 January.  As usually Penicuik fielded three teams.  Dave Anderson skipped the first game at 10.00 am against MIdcalder.  His team included Liz Anderson, Dave Carr, and Ronnie Hope.  They came away with a 9-5 win.

The second rink played at 2.00 pm against the Bank of Scotland.  Jim Ramsay skipped a team of Ken Hunter, Roger Scott, and John Glidden.  The outcome was an 11-3 win; it could easily have been 12-1 but for a very fortunate (and somewhat undeserved) result from the opposition Skip’s final stone.

Our final game was against Corstorphine at 6.00pm, when Addrew Lambie skipped a team including John Jacobs, Iain Scott, and Margaret Carr.  Corstorphine probably represented the toughest opposition in our draw this year, and Penicuik went down to a 2-7 loss.

We finished the tournament on an average of 2.33 points.  The competition was won by Currie & Balerno with an average score of 11.67.  The Colin Black trophy for the highest up rink on the day went to Royal Bank of Scotland with a score of +14.
