2019 -- The Stephenson Trophy was played on Saturday and the results were — Jackie v Rona 5-2 ends and 9-4 shots — Ruth v Gill 5-1 ends and 8-5 shots. Although both Jackie and Ruth tied on 5 ends apiece Jackie wins on shots. So congratulations to Jackie, Don, Laura and Elaine for a close win. The wine is chilling as we speak — well the white is!!
2018 The first of our weekend fixtures -- how will it go???
Nov 2018 -- Although there was a big rugby match on at Murrayfield a full compliment turned out last Saturday to take part in the Stephenson Trophy. However there were a few looking at phones during the game to see how Scotland were faring against Argentina.
Anne versus Janice was a nip-and-tuck type of game and by the 6th end the game was sitting at 3 ends to 2 however a last ditch rush to the finish saw Janice grab the last two ends to finish on 4 ends apiece. On the other rink Ruth and Laura ended the 5th end on 3 ends to 2 however Ruth turned up the heat in the last two ends to win by 5 ends to 2. So Ruth with support from Gordon, Gavin and Rona won the trophy — well done.
This match was the first we have undertaken on a weekend and most people I spoke to were, apart from the clash with the rugby, happy with a Saturday game. It would however be good to get your comments.
Note to myself — avoid arranging curling games when the Scottish rugby team are playing.
