Galloway Province honors champions

Galloway Province Curlers celebrated the unique
and unprecedented achievement of two of its players
on Sunday night in winning their respective
world curling championships in the same season.

You can find Christine and Gregor at the link below
giving their acceptance speeches to their awards.
Christine cut her curling teeth around the age of ten
following in her mother and father's footsteps
along the curling path with EK&H CC.
Well done grannie Alison Allison to have
two such brilliant curlers in the family.

BIRTHDAY GIRL Alison
Let the sun shine on you throughout the year,
Let the wind be gentle on your back,
Let the ice be kind and forgiving,
when you can't get off the hack.
Happy Birthday!

An email has been doing the rounds
thought McGonigal should be informed of
this red card affair

Dear Stella,
Two aging curlers arrived at Brian Scott’s physio clinic
this morning with aches and pains all over.
Bill and Jim told Mr Scott that, last night,
Bill had to throw
twenty four heavy curling stones and sweep forty.
Jim also threw twenty four and swept twenty four.
Jim’s older than Bill, you see!
Due to fatigue, both played rubbish,
leaving the skip with no chance and the game was lost.
Bill was so traumatised,
he has withdrawn from the next two games
and is going on a cruise to recover.
Jim is expecting to be picked up by the perpetrator of the crime
at the John Wright Sports Centre,
7.15pm, on Tuesday 13th October and a G&T after the game.
No doubt, Archie will have one also.
The perpetrator will not be named,
however,
I will ask Stella to pass this message on
if she knows the member concerned,
and also, the physio bill and the red card from the skip.
  Jim D.

  Hi Jim,
Unfortunately I do in fact know the perpetrator
and he will be suitably chastised.
Which I may say he may also enjoy!!
He definitely owes you all a G&T
and will be buying the drinks after the next game.
I am glad Bill has a cruise to help him recover from the trauma!
And I hope the physio has helped you both!!
I think it's a good idea for him to pick you up on the 13th at 7.15
as it will ensure he turns up for the next game.
Although that won't guarantee a win.
Perhaps drinks before the game might do the trick.
Stella

Big Willie' s Card night
Willie King
For those who didn't get a laugh
I thought a tale to tell
On leaving the card night at the Mains
Big Willie, …….…..well he fell!

"Good night!" he cried with hearty cheer
And stepped into the dark
Filled up with whisky food and beer
Now where has Aileen parked.

With "goodbye's!" ringing all around
To John, to Tam to Willie
He turned and waved his last good night
Thinking…. mah head's gone awfu silly

The door was open, the car was ready
On his feet…he felt…he felt… quite steady
On striding round to reach the door
Keeping his feet was quite a chore

THE CATTLE GRID ……..OH! By F**K
Now he found his leg was stuck
Thinking to himself, what a farce
I really feel……a silly arse

Aileen's laughing didn't help
She's lucky she didn't get a skelp
He pushed and pulled with all his might
But he was firmly in the S**te

With feet size 12 and legs like trees
Removing them…..it was no breeze
And so he writhed about on bum
His shoe it was the last to come

Safe out now and homeward bound
He checked his pockets for a pound
Not another word was said
Till he was safely home in bed
