Advance Press News for Editors, from South Lanarkshire Wheelchair Curling Club
Event Date: 28th November at 1.15pm.
Yes it’s true, the world’s largest wheelchair curling club, based at Hamilton Ice Rink, is to hold the first- ever haggis curling competition. It will be on the 28th November at 1.15pm.
Six teams of wheelchair curlers, and one of ‘able-bodied’ curlers will slide their 44lb granite stones down the ice at a… HUGE HAGGIS supplied by the competition sponsors Damn’d Delicious of Lanark.
No picture editor worth his haggis, neeps, and tatties will wish to miss this unique event…never before played in the hundreds of years of the Scots (and our Colonies) involvement in the Roarin’ Game.
Amongst those playing will be the Great Britain team, the Silver Medalists at this year’s World Wheelchair Curling Championships. But will they be best at Haggis Curling?
South Lanarkshire wheelchair curlers do it sitting down.
