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.
