Tunnock’s Bonspiel 4/5/6 April 2017 – Hamilton Ice Rink

2017 Winners: Team Wightman with skip Rosemary Lenton, David Wightman, Gill Kill and Beatrice Kerr for South Lanarkshire Wheelchair Curling Club.  Runners Up: Team Pimblett  and 3rd : Team McGarry both teams for Newcastle.

10 teams played a round robin competition with 3 games per day.  The players from all round Scotland, Northern England and Wales played good curling in good humour throughout the three days.

As always the event was a great success with the wheelchair community and is the final competition of our season.  This is the ninth year of Tunnock’s terrific sponsorship. Their continued interest and loyalty is greatly appreciated.

Organising any competition requires considerable commitment to provide what was a seamless and enjoyable 3 days of curling.  Moira Law and Ian Donaldson worked hard to organise this annual event.  Thanks to all those that contributed, it is a long list and they know who they are. SLWCC is very grateful for all the help and support received.  We look forward to 2018.
