Points Competition 2013

 

The first night of the season introduces new people the the sport, and gets 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 – the same as last year.

New Season just days away

We are just a couple of days away from the start of the 2013-14 First Province season!

As with previous years, the season will begin with a Development Evening and Points Competition, this coming Monday (9th September).  Anyone who wants to Try Curling for the first time should come along at 5:30pm, 6:30pm or 7:30pm, for a one-hour taster session.

Also available over the course of the evening, for returning members and new members who have played before will be:

The cost for unlimited time on the ice will be £5 (£3 for under-21s).  Please bring friends, family and anyone else who might be interested.

If you want to take part in the competition, more details on what shots are required are on the animation on the main Points Competition page.

Returning players, please remember to bring your chequebooks to renew your membership (£50/£20) and if you wish, to pay for ice fees (£220/£120) for the main part of the season. Also, the draft schedule for the whole season is now available to view or download, though please note this is subject to possible change.

Points Competition Results (2012)

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.

TryCurling & Points Competition 2012

We have been waiting – with various levels of patience – but the start of the new season has finally arrived. On Monday 10th September, we have a special one-off price for unlimited time on the ice (up to our booking limit around 10:30pm) of £5 per adult, £3 for Juniors (under-21), to include any or all of: TryCurling, Points Competition or practice.

There is a chance for you to Try Curling for the very first time. Come along to Deeside Ice Rink for 5:30, 6:30 or 7:30pm. Established members and coaches, please be on hand to help out when needed!

At 7pm that same evening, the Points Competition gets underway. If you have never taken part in one before, have a look at the Points Competition page for a handy guide (including a nifty animation).  It is a good way to test your skills and find out what needs improvement.

Finally, if you have been playing a while and do not want to take part in the Points Competition, there should be some practice ice available, or just being an extra person to help out will always be useful.
