Seniors qualifying

The Forfar rink (above) was one of the two venues for the Scottish Seniors Qualifying competition this weekend. All the teams, even those with furthest to travel, eg from Nairn, made it through to Forfar, despite the snow! Three teams qualified from each of the two sections. Jim Stevenson, Don Stark and David Rutherford came forward from one section, and Andy McGlynn, David Clydesdale and Ian Young from the other.

At Greenacres, there were three sections with two teams qualifying from each. Our Senior Champions, skipped by Keith Prentice, made sure of their place in the finals again (at the Lanarkshire Ice Rink, Hamilton, February 11-14) by winning their first four games. Graeme Adam's team, winners two seasons ago, are through too. George Christie and Gordon Butler came out of Section B, the surprise here being the demise of the Colin Hamilton rink, with just one win in four games. Ian Gillespie and Gary Macfarlane were the other two qualifiers.

All the results are here.
