Kirkforthar Cup

The Kirkforthar Potato Company was established and run by Derek McCulloch whose wife, Elma, was a founder member of Orwell Ladies curling Club. Subsequently two of their daughters, Lawrie and Hester, also joined the club.

The Kirkforthar Trophy was donated by the family to be presented to the winner of the annual pairs competition.

The Pairs is a knock-out competition, where a club skip or third plays with a lead or second.

At the AGM in 2012 it was agreed to try a high road and low road format in the pairs. This was trialled for 2 seasons and then dropped.
