The evening of 11th February saw 2 teams from Penicuik playing against 2 teams from New Stones in a fun filled and good-natured social match.
Penicuik’s first team was skipped by Barbara, with Les, Alicia and David G supporting, whilst Kirsty skipped the second team of Jim Hume, David B and Jean. Four of our newest members, Jean and Graeme Cassie, Louise and Paul Clapperton played for New Stones along with Alan and Susan Gill, Saho Arakawa and Nicki Cassie.
Penicuik’s rinks swapped ice half way, and although scores for each end didn’t really matter at the end of the day, teams did make a half-hearted attempt at keeping the cards updated. It’s fair to say that New Stones were understandably outplayed although there were some great shots from both sides, maybe a few wilder ones, but we all managed to come off the ice unscathed after a fun night’s curling.
As is customary, we retired upstairs to continue the socialising over a drink and chat. Hopefully, we have achieved our aim, made some new friends, and shown New Stones players what a friendly club we are, in the hope that those who haven’t already done so may seriously consider joining Penicuik in the future.
