This annual trophy, a double rink competition, is sponsored by auctioneers John Swan & Sons and was played this season on the 12th December.
Rinks of Andrew Lambie, Keith Morris, Roger Scott and Alex Moir and of Dave Anderson, Jim Ramsay, Ken Hunter and Ronnie Hope were pitted against our old adversaries of Oxenfoord. Andrew’s rink got off to a steady start then scored a five to settle down to win their game strongly by 12 shots to 6. Dave’s rink lost a single in the first end and were lying shot in the second with last stone for a potential two but unfortunately the last shot did not draw as expected and raised an opposition stone to gift them a single. This was the way that the game continued and we were outplayed by a strong rink. Although we managed two consolation shots we lost the game by 14 shots to 2, thereby losing the match overall by 20 shots to 14.
