First Club Session of the new season

Sunday 6th October saw us taking to the ice for the new season. We had 13 members present and all enjoyed a competitive session on ice. Have we remembered what to do from last season? Just about I think as can be seen from these photographs.

Our President’s Birthday weekend

On 20th October 2019 we enjoyed our usual Club session which was attended by 12 curlers. What made this session different was our President Alison was celebrating her 30th Birthday! A major milestone for everyone however as you can see from the photographs below she is looking not too bad - for her age! Happy Birthday from all of us.

No Sweeping Bonspiel 2020

Sunday 2nd February saw our annual No Sweeping Bonspiel. We had 23 players taking part and were joined by curling friends from other wheelchair curling clubs, able bodied clubs and for the first time eight members of Glasgow Young Curling Club. Everyone quickly settled into their game and close competition was had all afternoon. At the end of the day there was a clear winning team whist four other teams drew on points and it came down to shots “for” to decide the runner up! We adjourned to The Curlers Bar where we enjoyed tea/coffee and cakes. We held a raffle where almost everyone received a prize. We would like to thank everyone who gave their support by contributing prizes for the raffle. The prize giving was then held and winners and runner up’s were given beautiful trophies made for us by a friend and fellow wheelchair curler from Lockerbie Wheelchair Curling Club (Mary Bell). Many thanks to Mary for making these for us and also for making the commemorative slate coasters which were given to all players. Everyone agreed it had been a great bonspiel.
