Sue stays in place for Swinton

SWINTON CURLING CLUB held their AGM in the Wheatsheaf Hotel with some 32 members in attendance, writes Alistair Lindsay.

Sue Brewis presided in a cheerfully competent manner, now into the second year of her sentence, with Judith Dixon as understudy. Tom Baird is the very communicative secretary again and Alistair Hodge is guardian of the treasury.

High point of the season was winning the Berwickshire Bonspiel with a semi-final showing in the Tweedmouth Kettle for a follow-up. All club competitions were keenly fought and the Swinton pairs competition had to be one of the best of its kind in the Borders.

Elsewhere, the draw for the old established Harry Hogg knock-out competition, sponsored by Border Chainsaw and Lawnmower services of Earlston, for season 2012/13 has been completed and is as follows: Coldstream v Earlston; Yester v Lammermuir; Chirnside v Roxburghe; Jedburgh v Kelso; Ayton Castle v Greenlaw; Selkirk v Swinton; Foulden v Glendale; Duns v Teviotdale.
