Polmaise TrophyThe Polmaise Trophy.

Presented by Colonel Murray of Polmaise in 1896, it was to be played for between Stirling, Stirling Castle, Borestone and Sauchie and Bannockburn Curling Clubs in annual competition, the final being played at Bearside, where Colomel Murray had permitted curling to take place.   Over the years, the clubs have changed, first Stirling Castle ceased as a curling club, the Borestone and Stirling amalgamated to leave a single game between the two clubs annually.

 

 

 Having lost three of our Interclub games to this point we needed to try our best to win yesterday evening’s game — and we did.  On rink A — Gordon, John, Laura and Philip started shabbily losing a single shot but that was the only downside to this game as they never looked back for the rest of the game winning 10-1.   On rink B — Alan L, Fraser, Tom and Dave had a more nip and tuck game but the 4 shot win at the 5th end sealed the game and a final win of 8-5.   
Well done to all who took part.

So having cleaned the trophy within an inch of its life on Sunday it is back at Chez Mott.   I’m happy if the skips Gordon and Alan wish to give it a home — or anyone else?    The downside of course is that you will be expected to keep it clean and shiny a la Gollum!!
