Pairs curling is good old-fashioned fun. Fancied teams can fall by the wayside early doors and unfancied teams can come through from nowhere and lift the trophy. It's the club's equivalent of a knock-out cup - anything can happen (and usually does!).
But not this year! This year a strong team of Dave Munro, currently riding high in the Kettle Trophy competition and skipping one of the three teams in contention for the overall title, teamed up with Megan Priestley, one of the new generation of talented young C & B curlers. Megan had never played in a pairs competition - and she wins the very first one that she enters! I know someone who has played in scores of pairs competitions and has never won one of them!
Anyhow, they carried all before them and here they are in the club room celebrating their victory after a sumptuous roast dinner.
