Report by Jim Strang
We began the new season on the ice in the usual fashion.
Lots of new clothes on show, lots of enthusiastic shouting,
lots of bad shots and lots of stiff sore bodies the following day.
It was also good to see some new members
being made to feel very welcome.
After lots of shuffling of teams by our match secretary
Willie Craig finally settled on his own winning team. (he thought)
The 7 ends were played on very good ice
after which we had our lovely buffet meal.
Then on to the prizegiving where our president Willie Craig
sat out 4 egg cups and 4 nice photo frames
with a picture of himself looking his best in them.
To everyone’s amazement he announced the egg cups were for the booby,
not the photo of himself.
I think this was decided after he realised
the bottom team on minus 7 was the one skipped by himself,
Peter Henderson third, Kate Torrance second and Katie Brown lead.
The runner up team on plus 7 was James Baird,
George Ballantyne, Aileen King and Robert Paterson
and the winners on plus 8 were President’s wife Jackie Craig,
Nancy Rutherford, Issy Tait and new member Tom Bryson (good start).
Jackie, upon receiving her photo frame
proceeded to kiss and hug it in such loving fashion,
the audience had to look away.
It must have been a lot easier than working with the real one.
p.s. Great to see future member Amy Paterson
on her first trip to the ice rink.
Pps Laura Strang’s shoes looked very similar
to a pair of golf shoes I used to have.
Must talk her father into buying her a new pair
before she suffers the kind of humiliating experience I did.
