Last year’s Presidents of Cadzow Club (Jimmy Maxwell), and SLWCC(Arthur Bell), had agreed with their committees to set up an inter-club contest. Brian Douglas, a member of both clubs, had come up with the suggestion. So on Jan 17th a new challenge event took place at Hamilton Ice Rink.
Two teams from each club played a ‘no sweeping’ game, and the winners of both were SLWCC. Paul Webster and Jim Sellar skipped the two winning foursomes.
After the game Jimmy produced a superb new trophy and presented it to Rosemary Lenton of SLWCC. Cadzow had commissioned a Moffat based craftsman, and his extraordinary sculpted pewter wheel with curlers, all set on a slab of red Dumfries sandstone is truly impressive. Both clubs look forward to a return match next season, but Jimmy Maxwell threatened: “Next time we’ll play a sweeping game!”
