The first night of the season always plays two roles – to introduce new people the the sport, and to help get existing players back into form after the long summer break. There were a number of people who came to the Try Curling sessions. If you wish to have the same experience, why not come along next Monday?
The Points Competition was not high-scoring. Scores were awarded as 2 (a “perfect” shot) or 1 (for a right result) in the disciplines of striking, inwicking, drawing, guarding, chap & lie, wick & curl in, raising, chipping the winner, drawing through a port and outwicking. With 2 attempts at each shot, the maximum possible score was 40. Out of a maximum possible score of 40, the top score was 22 – but that was an increase on last year.
