Moira Hastings (in front) skipped her team of Anne Smith, Fiona Robson and Linda Smith to win the Henderson Bishop trophy yesterday, defeating Mary Barr, Ena Stevenson, Joy Bowie and Maureen Aitken in a close game. The linescore is here, and a photo of the trophy presentation is here.
Here is the Hastings rink in action on their home ice.

Low Road final now. June Swan, Glynnice Lauder, Gillian Smith and Joan Forrest (Borders) faced Lanarkshire 1 - Marion MacDonald, Mhairi Baird, Jackie Craig and Caroline Morrison. That's June in front. The Lanarkshire team finished 7-5 in front, here.
Marion was one of the first youngsters I coached way back in the mid 1980s, and I was pleased to see she still throws the stone very well!
She got good support from her team, including third Mhairi, above.

A team thrilled to be winners!
