Still Catching Up

Above: The teams which placed 1-4 in the Virtual Bospiel last Saturday at Lockerbie (click on the pic to see larger size).

An enthusiastic group of new curlers took part at the National Virtual Club Bonspiel at Lockerbie. Fourteen teams from Fife, Kinross, Murrayfield, Borders, Stirling, Braehead and Lockerbie played a schenkel in two sections, each playing three four-end games. The final and 3rd/4th games were played off with the top two teams in each section.

Both games were tight going down to the last stones. David Jones skipped his team from Kinross to victory beating Lockerbie's Alayne Smith and her team. Third place went to Gerry McCormack from Braehead who beat Grant Course from Lockerbie.

Ailsa Craig Jewellery provided the prizes for the winning team and Lockerbie Ice Rink gave additional prizes for the 2nd - 4th placed teams. Many enjoyed a meal and socialised before returning home. It was a great day!
