One of the Royal Club’s perhaps lower profile competitions is the District Medal. This is a shame because it gives club curlers the opportunity to play and meet others from around the country in a one-off game.
Kirkcaldy, for those who haven’t had the dubious pleasure of playing there, is a 1930s ice hockey stadium and, let’s just say the ice is “challenging “!
5 down after three ends, the Dundonald rink skipped by President Morag Evans with John Davers, Andrew Kerr and Linda Williams were clearly taking their time to get to grips with the fall backs and the varying speeds of the ice. At least these are our excuses !!
However, we hung in and managed to finish 6-8 so no medal this year for Dundonald but a most enjoyable day with good curling against a very friendly rink led by Ian Fleming.
Good luck to the two other Ayr clubs who entered this year’s District Medal, Galston and Troon Portland who have still to play their ties against Tarland and Dumbarton.
Many thanks also to Andrew Kerr for the above report.
