Just a little reminder that this coming Friday sees the Cawder House A.G.M at Cawder Golf Club, 7 p.m. sharp!
In addition, if anyone has not yet returned their playing intentions sheet to Eleanor yet, could they please do so as soon as possible as ice allocation has to be sorted out as soon as possible. A copy of the form is available here
The Cawder House season on ice finished last Monday evening at Braehead with the points competition which saw one ‘Housie’ continue his recent winning streak…
For those still unaware of the winner, the following report has been received from Eleanor McDougall on the night’s events:-
Breaking with tradition, Cawder House held an end-of-season event which featured Points, Pizza & Pasta (and one hamburger).
Although there were a few last-minute call-offs due to work commitments and injury, a healthy 16 players took part in a noisy points competition, helped along by President Alaister buying drinks for the thirsty players half-way through. Sadly that maybe explains the dip in scores in the middle.
Seven disciplines were covered and the total scores for each tells a story –
Striking 61 points
Guarding 51 points
Drawing 50 points
Raising 33 points
Chip the winner 33 points
Chap & Lie 11 points
Wick in 11 points
Only 5 players managed to accumulate a personal score above 20 and the top three are
George Barron 29 points
Libby Torrance 25 points
Glenn Nash 25 points
Everyone adjourned to Prezzo downstairs for some farewell nosh and to set the world to rights (well, the RCCC and Braehead at least).
Well done to George Barron on completing a winning weekend by adding another title to his curling CV!
For those wondering exactly where they finished in this seasons league, the final league table can be viewed via the results page or by clicking here.
A big well done to George Barron, Sandra Goldie and George Elliott who along with Sandra Brunger won this year’s National Virtual Challenge at Braehead.
It’s the second year running that the winning team has been made up of three members of Cawder House and is testament to the club’s recent strategy of encouraging newcomers and in particular to the hard work of Robbie Stewart in bringing new players to the club.
As well as the winners, Jonathan Hamilton, George Reid, Donna Elliott, Libby Torrance and Sharon Taylor Kerr also took part in the event. Well done to all but especially the winners whose dazzling display was only matched by their luminous outfits!
The scorecards are now finally up for the last league games of the season and can be viewed by clicking the relevant link on the ‘results’ page. Apologies for the delay!
Cawder House will not yet be getting their hands back on the Littles Trophy after defeat by Howwood for both teams at Braehead on Thursday night.
However, given the different in experience of the teams, Cawder House gave an excellent account of themselves as they faced much more seasoned opposition.
Of the game he skipped, Rodger Burnett has advised:
We played well and if it was not for losing a 5 in end 3 it would have been a lot closer. We eventually lost 8-3 but went for it in the last end. Going into the end we were 7-3 down but had 4 stones lying with only three shots to go. The Howwood skip managed to draw in and lie shot with his second last shot so I was left with a difficult shot to take his stone out without disturbing my own but narrowly missed. We may have lost but can be pleased with a very good team effort.
No details have been forthcoming of the other game, which was also a defeat.
The final action of the curling season for 2014/2015 takes place at Braehead on Friday 3rd April when the Braehead Closing Bonspiel and Prize Giving will be held.
Cawder House have a team entered in the competition, skipped by Drew Jolly with Madeleine Sharp, Donna Elliott and George Reid making up the quartet.
