Conclusion of Kettle and Thirds Leagues

As you will all be aware Murrayfield Curling Rink closed on 18th March until further notice. 

In the few days before the closure and in view of  the latest Government advice on Coronavirus, it was left up to individual Skips  to decide whether or not they would play their remaining matches. Most had justifiable concerns over their own health or that of family members.  As a result, only one of the two Thirds games was played on Monday 16th, and neither of the two remaining Kettle games was played on Wednesday 18th.

With no way of knowing how long Murrayfield will remain closed, or Rule to cover these extraordinary circumstances, it has been agreed that the results of  the Kettle and Thirds  competitions will stand as of now.

Many congratulations to Iain Scott and his rink of Ken Hunter, Barbara Gillespie and Jenny Wray on winning the Kettle League, after a very closely fought final few matches where in fact any one of three or four teams were in contention to win.

Also many congratulations to Craig Brown, in his first year as Skip for Penicuik, and his team of David Ballantyne,  Kirsty McWilliam and Frank Duffy on winning the Thirds League.

It is  increasingly unlikely that the Annual Dinner and Prize-giving will go ahead this year but hopefully the winners of all the Competitions can be presented with their Trophies at some point in the near future.

Enjoy your summer and keep well.
