Tom Holmes Trophy

History

This trophy was presented to the club by Jim Barr, Jim Fleming and Robbie McLean in memory of their teammate, Tom Holmes, who died on 23rd January 1980 in Kelso Ice Rink.  Tom was born in 1901 and was club president from 1948 until 1968.  He was also involved in establishing the Coronation League and was made an Honorary President of Currie and Balerno Curling Club. 

The teams for the bonspiel are drawn randomly out of the hat and the aim of the trophy is for a sociable, fun afternoon of curling followed by supper and an evening of story-telling at the rink.  Originally, the competition was played over two games.  In 2001, the competition was altered to one longer session of curling, with three 3-end games.  The scoring is calculated on ends first, then shots; this ensures that even if a big end is scored by a team, the other teams still have a chance to win the cup.

Following a repeat win by Robbie McLean in 1986, the committee decided that a winning skip will not be drawn as a skip again.  This gives all members a better chance to get their names on a club trophy.
