EK&H C.C. -V- Hamilton Thorneyhill Winners 2018

Ryan Asher----------George Strang-----------Janet Leiper

Friday 5th October 2018 at 5.45pm L.I.R.

Report by George Strang.
Arriving in the car park I was met by my second
blowing up his tyre with compressor
and I thought to myself; he’s” pumped up”.
It got better in the changing rooms, we got the news,
all the Halls were at Nairn on a golfing trip.
I thought President Wullie
would want to play president Archie
but na he did a body swerve and left me to take the spoils.
Our game was a bit one sided
as Archie doesn’t normally skip in the inter club games
he said it was hard to play draw weight
with all that adrenalin going through him, tell me about it.
the result was 12-2 to my team of
George Strang, Ryan Asher, Jim Morrison and Janet Leiper.
If you are wondering why Jim isn’t in the photo
it's because he doesn’t do photos.

How poor Peter Henderson got landed with this lot
I don’t know.
Jackie skipped with Ali Taylor giving advice at third
and Margaret Brown the stick at second
poor Peter just had to sweep and keep his mouth shut.
They had a couple of close ends
then Arthur's "Devine Team" just got away from them.
In the Ryder cup it was referred to as dovetailing
but it was mair like wood chipping.
Keep this in mind Brian.
Arther won 9-4

President Willie liked the look of this team
so slipped in at lead with Margaret Ferguson
then David Lawson and finally Robert Tait in charge.
They were against John Harcourt
and it was a very close game up until the 6th end
when Robert and his team got a 5
which killed the game and they won 11-5.
It was all played in the usual good spirit
apart from Richard Kenyon crossing 2 sheets
to poke me on the shoulder
and tell me to be nice to his pals.
The food was great,
but I don’t know where Lawson puts it all
the Gammon steak then 4 bits of baking.

Monday 8th October 2018 at 5.45pm L.I.R.

Due to unforseen circumstances this leg of the match
was abandoned, both clubs have agreed
that the highest up club on Monday 7th January 2019
will be the winners of the Neilson Trophy for this season.

Report by Brian Cassidy

The result of this match was decided by the last stone,
at the last end, in the last game to finish.
After Willie Baird had played a couple of superb shots,
it was left to the Galston Haymouth skip, Tom Neill,
to play the pressure shot.
If Willie's shots counted,
this inter-club match would have peeled.
However, Tom withstood the pressure
and played a terrific shot to the button
to ensure that the Tappit Hen
was traveling down the M77
to the GH trophy cabinet.
Earlier in this game,
Willie had been troubled at 2 ends
by the spooky/dodgy No7 stone
suddenly changing direction at crucial shots.
It looked like it was being controlled remotely
by the "spirit" of Ayr Ice Rink,
although it veered that badly it seemed more like
it had picked up a lump of chewing gum.
After that, Brian Cassidy used this stone
and it improved his game!!
Willie was better supported by
Peter Henderson and Bill Gibson.

In the other rinks
it appeared as if curling
wasn't the only contest taking place.
As fashion goes, the ladies were in the shadow.
Lockhart's toorie bunnet though,
was outdone by the trousers
worn by former EK&H member, Paul Meehan.
I asked him if his mother had been up all night
vandalising tartan tea cosies
to get the material to make his multi tartan trews.
Paul's brother, Mark took on the legend that is
Lockhart Steele (Mark's words),
Fiona McGinnis, John Gilmour and Janet Leiper.
Lockhart showed why he is a legend
by beating Mark by a shot whilst only winning 2 ends.
I think he was teasing Mark
by letting him win the other ends.

George Strang's rink of
Willie Cannon, Willie Dykes and Helen Drummond
(good to see you back Helen!)
also achieved a win by a shot.

I did sympathise with Jim Strang
having to play his game with Stella and Agnes,
who had full bellies
having come straight from the EK&H Ladies Lunch.
I'm assured that no alcohol was taken.....
maybe it would have been better if it had.
Despite also having Jim Craig in the rink,
they lost by 3 shots.

Thanks to all those
who stepped in and substituted,ensuring
we still had a strong set of rinks for this match.
Following the meal, I observed a nervous Agnes,
as her 2 boys told some very funny stories.
Fortunately these, and all the other skips' jokes,
were well received
and contributed to a fine and sociable event.
