Another fantastic weekend of curling at the Four Nations in Hamilton hosted by the Irish Curling Association. Scoring was provided by Adrian Meikle with a very informative scrolling display (final version here) letting everyone know where they were at on the seven trophies up for grabs.
The event was well supported by all four nations and everyone enjoyed a very sociable dinner and disco on the Saturday evening. As always, entertaining speeches were given by all national associations, topped of course by our ‘guest’ speaker Bill Gray. The Irish Curling Association also marked its 20th Birthday with a cake cut by some of our founding members.
Scotland picked up 3 trophies, Wales took 2 and England & Ireland both took 1, so no-one went home empty handed.
Summary aggregate scores are:
Marshall Millennium – Ireland 20 Scotland 41
Meikle Trophy – Wales 38, Ireland 27
Turnbull Cup – England 20, Ireland 30
Kay Trophy – Wales 28, England 34
Tom Ballantyne – England 42, Scotland 58
Connie Miller – England 10, Scotland 18
