Tunnocks Trophy 2018

Our annual competition sponsored by Tunnocks Foods once again rounded off the curling season.  Nine teams competed in a round robin competition over three days. This year two teams from Newcastle swept the board winning first and second place: Winners: Northern Ice 2 with Christine Warwick, Mick Walker, Jeff Ward and Paul McGinty.  Runners-up: Northern Ice 1 with Dave Melrose, Stephen McGarry,  Gary Logan an Stewart Pimblet.

Boyde Tunnock and Fergus Louden presented prizes to the winning teams at the dinner held on the last evening, which was also attended by the Provost, Mr Ian McAllan.  The event is always a success and is eagerly anticipated every year by wheelchair curlers across the country.  This was the 10th year that Tunnocks have supported us and in recognition of this, our club presented Boyde Tunnock with a picture depicting his life, hobbies and interests.  We appreciate the sponsorship as this competition helps to encourage wheelchair users into the sport of wheelchair curling.
