The annual KCT Over 40’s weekend took place from Friday 11th to Sunday 13th January. 16 teams took part in 2 groups of 8. The first 3 games were played on a schenkel system then the top 2 teams went forward to the high road, the next 2 to the low road, and the remaining 4 to the Bonspiel Challenge.
Orwell Ladies was well represented, Sue Cameron, Susan Scougal and Fiona Doig in Team Scougal (skipped by Robin Kay), Angela Wilcox in Team Dixon (skipped by Judith Dixon and with Joan Reid and Debbie Higgins), Eileen Thomas and Maggie Saunderson (with their husbands) in Team Thomas, and Liz Glennie and Maggie Scott (with Fiona deVreis and Liz Thomson) in Team Glennie.
Team Dixon came 3rd in their group and met Team Scougal who came 4th in the other group in a low road semi-final. Very tight game, but a great final stone from Robin gave them the game and they went on to play the Musketeers, Team Chalmers in the final. They played really well but lost 5 – 3.
The High Road winners were Team Paterson, Willie Paterson, Sandy Nelson, Doug Templeton and Iain Robertson. For a full list of winners see the KCT website or Facebook page.
The Saturday evening was a buffet supper and karaoke. Taking part was not optional! It was certainly not tuneful but it was very entertaining and everyone had a great evening.
