Curling Dingers come out in force for meeting

MORE than half of the club membership attended the Duns Curling Club AGM, which was presided over by George Whiteford.

As Border League holders, Duns went well throughout this prestigious competition last season, only to lose out on shots in their section at the very end. No success came to the Dingers in the Berwickshire competitions, but it must be mentioned that their ongoing administration of the Tweedmouth Kettle was as good as ever. There are signs of a rehash of trophy arrangements in this contest – details of which will be given to all Berwickshire clubs in due course.

Duns won the Borders double rink competition and will go to the finals in Stranraer in December.

A recent addition to the membership is one Luigi Massari, who will liaise with the Borders Curling Development Group and also curl with Duns if he is not already curling for anyone else.

To return to the AGM, stability prevails with David Oliphant as vice-president, perpetual motion John Walker as secretary and treasurer Paul Jess.

Colin Jeffries is gently taking a back seat within certain elements of his club activities, no doubt brought on by his skipping of the winning Auld Yins team last season.
