The 'Chanty' Challenge - EL v Borders

It was a close run contest on the new ice at Murrayfield this year with both provinces winning two games (and losing two games).  The scores on ice saw a two shot leading margin for East Lothian BUT we were given a 2 shot penalty for having a player arrive late.  The final adjusted scores saw East Lothian 27, Borders 27.
The Borders retain the trophy for another year.

NB Last year East Lothian was penalised for being one player short, which also had a bearing on the destination of the trophy.  ALL clubs should ensure that their players turn up in plenty of time and to allow for traffic.

Callum Harvey & Graham Elder

A big congratulations to the East Linton team of Robin Aitken and Paul Neison who beat the Haddington Team of Dave Munro and James Pate in the High Road Final.
The Low Road, this year was won by Dirleton's Callum Harvey and Graham Elder who beat Yester.

Edinburgh (Area 5) Bonspiel

Congratulations, but no cigar, to our East Lothian Team.  We were edged out into second place this year by Midlothian who finished with a score of +10 shots.  Thanks to a high scoring win in the last game by James Logan and his rink, East Lothian finished 2 shots behind on +8 shots.

Below is a report from Calder:-

Edinburgh Area Bonspiel 2018

This was held on its traditional date of the first Friday in December 2018.
Two rinks from each of our three Provinces, Midlothian, East Lothian and Peeblesshire joined battle with two rinks representing RCCC/ScottishCurling for possession of the coveted "Black Bull" trophy.
The RCCC/ScottishCurling rinks were unable to repeat their success of 2017, and Midlothian carried off the trophy. Basil Baird's rink was best placed individual team, with an overall score of +11 shots. 
As well as the main event, there was a separate "fun" draw shot competition, also won by Midlothian, emphasising their superior strength on the day. As with last year, the standard of drawing was ..... umm.... variable, with only 3 out of 32 stones thrown biting the button.
