Prizes for Pete’s Posse at Kinross

Both the men’s and women’s senior squads got a run out at the  Kinross Over 40s prior to heading Canada for the World Senior Championships in April.

Peter, Johnjo, David W and David H

Peter Wilson, who skipped Ireland to world senior bronze last year, has formed a new team this season with the bulk of the gold medal senior winners from 2012 – Johnjo Kenny, Bill Gray, David Whyte and David Hume – in it. Unfortunately Bill injured his leg and couldn’t play last weekend so David Hume played at lead. The team finished as the ‘middle road’ winners with just one loss in five games, and that was due to an unfortunate pick-up with Peter’s last stone of the game drawing for the win against the eventual winners.

The ladies played four games, winning two and losing two, and were pleased with their performance overall.

Peter, Clare, Marie, David W, Louise, David H and Carloyn. Johnjo was on the dancefloor…

It was a brilliant weekend socially and thanks go to the organising committee, including our very own Johnjo, for working so hard to make sure everything was spot on for the competitors to curl hard on the ice and party hard off it.

The Return of the TT!

Tony, Tommy, Charlotte and Phil

Great to see Tony Tierney back on the ice at Kinross at the weekend – and winning a prize as well!

He and Charlotte teamed up with Phil Barton and Tommy Campbell for the Over 40s bonspiel and topped the low road. It was a fantastic competition on the ice and great fun off it and looks set to become a regular event on the curling calendar for many years.

Well done TT. Normal service is resumed.

Team Cameron will be Team Ireland

It was a very busy weekend for ICA curlers – all over the place, we were. The men held their championship and Euro C League playdowns in Dumfries, the men and women senior squads were at the inaugural Kinross over 40s weekend and Neil and Alison were playing  in the  Dutch Masters CCT Mixed Doubles competition in Zoetermeer.

Craig, Eoin, John, James and Arran

First, the men…….. In a best of three challenge,  James Russell, John Furey, Craig Whyte, Arran Cameron won game one 8-3 and game two 8-6 against  Dave Hibberd, Alan Mitchell, Bob Sherrard, Ross Barr and Andrew Gilmore, so no third game on the Sunday was required.

The winning team won the right to represent Ireland in the Euro C League in Andorra  May.6-13.
