Reserve Availability at 31 August

This is the first "Reserve Availability" chart for the first-half competitions.  Please could I ask that the reserves just give the list a quick check and, if there are any mistakes or dates that you need to mark yourself down as either already playing or not available, just let Jenny Barr or Robin Copland know.

Once the season gets into full swing, this will be updated most weeks.

Teams and Draw September to December

Hard to believe that the curling season is almost upon us!

I am looking forward to trying out the ice at Murrayfield now that the first part of the rink's refurbishment is complete.  The new floor will make a huge difference to the ice team and the ice should be more consistent throughout the day.

Anyhow, here are the teams for the Kettle Trophy/ Harlaw Cup competition.

Rinks for Kettle Competition 2018
1 Niall Gunn 2 Kerry Clark
Robin Copland Raymond Preston
Anne Anderson Maggie Barry
Sheena Munro Stuart Ronald
3 John Steven 4 Susan Kesley
Karen Munro Bob Barr
Megan Priestley Norman Nicol
Margaret Nicol Susan MacFarlane
5 Katie Wood 6 Jenny Barr
Brian Fleming Andrew Galloway
Lois Copland Betty Gibb
Pauline Alexander Richie Anderson
7 Dave Munro 8 Mike Wood
Joe Barry Shona Watt
Rowena Steven Morna Aitken
Richard Alexander Donald Kennedy

Some good looking teams there; time will tell how the league progresses through to December. 

Here is the draw for the first half.  Note the Points Competition on Friday 19th October at 18.00 and note also the Club Doubles Competition (replacing the Pairs competition this year) on Sunday 25th November.

One other thing: note the new draw times!  The 18.00 (6.00pm) time replaces the old 5.30pm start time and the 20.10 (8.10pm) replaces the old 7.30pm time.

Four of the draws see all the teams out on duty, so if you need to find a sub for any of the dates, you might want to get things organised as quickly as you can.

Reserves please get your availability to me as soon as possible and I will start the weekly reserve availability post as soon as I have meaningful returns.

Here's to a great season!
