On the 18th November two Penicuik rinks took to the ice to play against Currie and Balerno in the first round of the Swan Trophy, a popular two rink competition in which we have played for many years. It’s good for the Club to play in these competitions which are very competitive but great fun to play in.
Craig Brown, Keith Morris, Roger Scott and David Gillespie played against the rink skipped by Brian Fleming. They experienced unlucky rubs in a couple of ends and ended up losing by 9 shots to 3
In the other game Dave Anderson, Jim Ramsay, Dave Carr and Ronnie Hope faced the rink of Susan Kesley. It was a very close encounter with the final outcome being a peel, 4 shots each, however one of their players was late and we were awarded 1 shot because of that so the official score was;
Currie & Balerno 13 – Penicuik 8
