Thirty two hungry curlers faced up in eight teams to contest the 2nd World Haggis Curling Championship, organised by South Lanarkshire Wheelchair Curling Club, at Hamilton Ice Rink on Monday 21st January.
After seven ends the winning team was announced by umpire Ian Archer. It was skipped by Jim Sellar, and was composed of new club member David Bain, Steve Sutherland, and, reigning World Champion Jan Dryffe of Crawfordjohn.
In a play off for individual winner the Champion Jan retained her title.
Club President David Morgan thanked the sponsor Mike Shannon of Dam’d Delicious the Lanark Butchers who farm their own herd of Aberdeen Angus at Thankerton. Mike had supplied a haggis for each of the winning team, and a superb (dam’d delicious) plate of haggis, tatties, and neeps for all the curlers in the Ice Rink restaurant.
After the exciting, sometimes hilarious event, members started looking forward to a repeat competition in season 2013/14. Haggis should beware!
