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.
