Mid Season Bonspiel Saturday 15th February
23 seasoned curlers plus a surprise guest, Stef (an Oban scallop diver landbound due to Storm Dennis) met on Saturday to contest this year’s Mid Season Bonspiel. The ladies skipped as is the norm in this competition with the usual Skip men playing as lead. This proved to be a bit of a challenge for some of them who struggled to get their lead stones in the requested position. However it was a well fought contest overall with the highest score for an individual end attained by Janette Lambie’s rink who took a 5 from the opposition in the fourth game.
After each team had played 6 ends we had an outright winner in Christine Hope’s rink of Jan Stuart, Ian Neil and Reg Dunbar with a score of +4, closely followed by Jean Noble’s rink on +3, Liz Anderson’s on +2. Janette’s on -1, Barbara Gillespie’s on -3 and, propping everyone up, Margaret Carr’s rink on -4.
This was a fun afternoon’s curling finished off with a lovely meal after which President Liz asked Jim Cowper, arrayed in his many medals, to present the prizes. Many thanks to Jim and Margaret Cowper for acting as sponsors and also to Christine for arranging the meal and the prizes, and of course to everyone who played.
