This friendly annual event was revived by the ICA in 1994 but was first played in 1861. Originally we hoped to play it alternating between Irish and Scottish ice rinks, however we cannot provide ice time in Ireland at the moment.
The Trophy is the Belfast Medal hanging in a wooden curling stone. The medal was originally played for between Belfast Union and RCCC.
The venue this year was be Harvies Rink in Ardrossan, Scotland, followed by sandwiches at the Rugby Club.
The competition is two teams from each club play a single 8 end game each and the aggregate score across the two rinks determines the winner. This year the trophy was gained by Ardrossan with an aggregate score of 22 stones to 10.
The ICA seldom play at this ice rink and found the ice challenging but the company warm and friendly.
