Rink Championship at Forfar: Back of the Bus and Other Stories

I'm at Forfar today for the playoff stages of the RCCC Rink Championship. This is from the quarterfinal between Perth and Forfar 3. Perth won this, stealing at the last end. All the results are here.

Robin Brydone delivers with David Brown and Peter MacKay at the ready.

Kenny Kinnear is in the head for Perth, with Ron Caithness and Mike Ferguson behind.

Two thirds. John Jo Kenny and Sandy Nelson in a local derby between two Kinross teams. Martin Sutherland's team won through to the semifinal over David Clydesdale.

Here's Robert Anderson of Ayr, with Alison Cunningham the sweeper. Ayr lost at the last stone against Hugh Neilson's Lanarkshire team.

Ian Gillespie congratulates his skip Gary Macfarlane on a good shot. The Braehead team lost out to John Penny's Aberdeen in the quarterfinal.

John Penny and Kenny Kinnear in the semifinal.

Hugh Neilson and Martin Sutherland in the other semifinal.

By all accounts this has been a great weekend, on and off the ice. The Forfar Indoor Sports minibus was put to good use, transporting competitors to their various guest houses and hotels. That's Jill Donald and Alex Donald.

No jokes please, about Eve Muirhead and the Back of a Bus!
