THE GREEN HOTEL KINROSS
CURLING and SOCIAL WEEKEND 2012
Tullibardine Weekend Green Hotel Kinross 2012 the High Road Winners
......Jackie Craig...........Willie Craig............Robert Halkett.......Senga Hair
The first weekend in February, East Kilbride & Haremyres headed to Kinross for their annual curling extravaganza.
Some of the group headed off early for a liquid lunch at The Grouse and Claret near Kinross.
Judging by their high spirits!(pardon the pun) when they arrived it looked like they had enjoyed themselves.
On Friday night we all met up for a room party before the hotels drinks reception and dinner.
After dinner the five teams were drawn, including EK&H members and super subs-Elaine Turnbull and Robert Halkett.
On Saturday morning we headed to the ice rink for our games against the five Beachnut teams.
During Saturday there was some good curling and some not so good…
Saturday evening began with a room party with plenty of stories and hilarity, followed by an excellent dinner.
After dinner we danced the night away, highlights being John Strang doing the YMCA and our male member's version of 'Its Raining Men'.
On Sunday morning we were back to the ice rink for the final games.
In the Low Road final were two EK&H teams
with Tommy Campbell, Stella Cassidy, Brian Cassidy and Elaine Turnbull
managing to win over Willie King, Agnes Strang, Aileen King and George Strang.
Moving on to the high road, it was the youthful EK&H team of Jackie Craig, Willie Craig, Robert Halkett and Senga Hair
against one of the mighty Beachnut teams.
With the EK&H front end playing well and Jackie playing some good shots,
especially an angled raise into the button against a two,
which drew great cheers from the fan club in the viewing gallery.
EK&H stayed in front and won the high road,
each receiving a bottle of Tullibardine Highland single malt whisky.
Speaking for everyone, a great weekend was had by all.
Remember this weekend is open for all our members to join in the fun.
Hope to see some new faces next year.
