Dunn Medal report by Chris Rennie
On 17th November the Club held its annual Dunn Medal competition.
8 Rinks gathered at 12.15 after our Vice President
had announced who would be playing in which rink.
Thanks should go at this stage to the 2 hardy spectators
who also turned up to support those of us clever enough
to decide curling on a Sunday was a good idea.
You know who you are (TN + AA!!)
First 4 end matches paired Emma Craig against Margaret Brown,
Bill Gibson against Issy Tait,
Audrey King against Carolyn Baird and
Chris Rennie against James Strang.
After some close games, close ends and
not so close games and close ends
(Lost a 6 in the first end!!!)
Carolyn Baird and Emma Craig both won 3 out of 4 ends
to top the leader board.
Issy Tait, James Strang, Chris Rennie and Bill Gibson
all won 2 with Audrey King and Margaret Brown
the unfortunates who suffered against Carolyn and Emma.
Quick soup and a sandwich for the participants
was followed by round 2
Carolyn played Emma, Issy against James,
Chris against Bill and Audrey against Margaret.
Some more close and not so close games followed
with Audrey winning 3 ends
to pull herself right up the leaderboard
and Chris and James also winning 3
to pull level with Carolyn and Emma.
At the end of the round these 4 Teams had won 5 ends each
with Audrey sitting right behind on 4.
Any one of the 5 could still win.
Then it came to the last round.
Chris played Carolyn, James played Emma,
Audrey played Issy and Bill played Margaret.
James started quickly taking a 4
and then a 3 at ends 1 and 2
whilst Chris and Carolyn traded a shot each.
Looking good for James
and it looked even better after end 3 when he stole a 1.
3 ends up and the other teams in contention
all winning and losing ends in equal measure.
James lost a 1 at the final end
but by then it was all over
with Chris and Carolyn peeling
and Audrey also only winning 2 ends
the Competition was duly won by
James, Andrea Fox, Emily Lawson and John King.
Yes I’m sorry –
something else for JK to regail us with
for the next year until next time.
A BIG thanks to all who subbed on the day,
Margaret for all the organisation
and many congratulations to James,
who skipped in the true family style.
