Cartoon curler


The Wiseman Final was played between the rinks
skipped by Robert Tait and Willie Baird.
Robert was supported by Mhairi Baird,
Bill Gibson and Laura Weir.
Willie had Alison Taylor,
Archie McFarlane and Katie Brown in his rink.
To be honest, I was eating my tea back in the second row
as the match was being played and would only look up
when my mouth was full of chips
(I had to guard them from Willie King's big mits).
Then President Willie eventually turned and said:
"Are you doing the report for this match?"
I think it was what they call a rhetorical question
and when the President asks, the President gets
(I'll see if that works next term!).

A quick check of the board showed that the match
was close for the first 4 ends
as both rinks put points on the board.
At the 5th end, both Robert and Willie
attempted to play off stones at the edge of the circle
to get knocked in. Willie had more success and got a 2
as Robert's shot hit the stone on the nose.
As the match progressed,
Willie humbly admitted to getting a couple of good rubs
that helped him to open the gap in the score.
Robert eventually shook hands
and reflected on what might have been.
The veteran with the stick,
one Mr. Archie McFarlane,
was delighted with the win (and deservedly so)
as this gave him the opportunity
to pose for the winners' photo
and show off his new set of sparkling white falsers!
I've heard of lucky mascots, but this was a first for me.
Willie was lucky that he was eating at the ice rink
as I don't think Mhairi would have been
in the mood to make his tea.

Well, that's all the main EK&H club curling for this year
(I know the ladies had their Points Competition,
but this was really just an excuse
to go for a wee bevy up in Coatbridge afterwards).
See you all at the Prize Giving Dinner,
7.00 for 7.30, on the 29th March
and the AGM on April Fools Day at 7.30.

Bob Wiseman Semi-final Report 2019
Report by President Willie

The semi-finals of the Bob Wiseman trophy
took place on Tuesday 12th March 2019.
First up were Willie Baird, Nancy Rutherford,
Archie McFarlane and Colette Maule
against the young guns skipped by Emma Craig
with James Strang, Catherine Morrison and Robert Paterson.
Emma and her team got a 2 in the first end
but that was as good as it got.
Willie and his team went on to win the game
and they progress to the final.
The future of the club is good when we have
a young skip and third reaching the semi-final
in their first year of playing these positions.
At the other end of the age spectrum Archie McFarlane
is through to the final.
He pointed out to me he is 4 times the age
of the opposing third James Strang.
This really goes to show that curling can accommodate all ages!

The second semi-final was Alex Torrance,
Rachael Hannen, Jim Boyd and Linda Smith
against Robert Tait, Mhairi Baird, Bill Gibson and Laura Weir.
As in the first semi-final the losing team skipped by Alex Torrance
got a 2 in the first end. This game had a lot of big hitting in it
as well as delicate draws but ultimately Robert’s team won in the end.
Once again can I thank all of the spectators who came out to watch
and hope to see them all again and more
for the final which is on Monday 18th March at 5:45pm.
