The Alex Reid trophy is usually played for by 2 teams from each of the 8 clubs competing in this event. However, due to the ongoing ramifications of covid , the event was reduced to one team each. And so it was that, last week, Derek, Gordon, Alan and Laura played against the team they had been drawn against- Grangemouth. The game itself was very friendly and B&S comfortably beat Grangemouth (sadly neither Alan nor Laura can definitely remember the exact score (let's blame covid brain fog!) but we think it was 12-2). Three teams each won by 5 ends to 2 ends. And so, the match is judged on shots up. B&S scored +10 and Falkirk scored +11.
2020 This bonspiel was cancelled due to the Covid19 lockdown
Well we have gone and done it again — won the damn thing!! — the Alexander Reid Memorial Trophy to give it its full title. And convincingly too as we were the only club to win both games — Derek winning 9-4 on shots with 5 ends — Mark 8-2 on shots with 5 ends.
Very well done to both teams — Derek, Gordon, Rob and Tom — Mark, Fraser, Don and Alan L. Just registered that there is not much gender equality in these teams selections — oops — black mark for the committee!!
Now if you are of a sensitive disposition look away now — photo attached of the happy skips — well done guys. Also a photo of the boxed trophy being smuggled out of the Peak by two reprobates who have probably already been on the internet seeing how much they can get for it.
The downside is that we will be required to organise next year’s competition — any volunteers? There is also the required cleaning which will be down to Mark as he is currently the holder.
