Witches at Kinross

Strange goings-on at the Kinross Rink yesterday! Lots of nose wiggling as the witches of Dunfermline Ladies took to the ice for their Halloween Bonspiel. (First time I've ever used 'witches' and 'Dunfermline Ladies' in the same sentence.)

Elizabeth Hughes must have cast some great spells over the other witches and helpers to win the bonspiel! Two of her helpers were enchanted in the Ladies' changing room from a sister club 'Time Out' to make up the team. These were finally released from the spell after promising to join Dunfermline Ladies.

Did anyone else celebrate Halloween on the ice?
