Twas on the 18th Feb that four men stepped onto the ice for a semi-final appearance in the Allan Medal.  The tension was palpable, the crowd enormous (OK Partick league was playing on the two sheets beside us....)  But to cut to the chase it was an incredibly hard fought game with virtually nothing between the two sides but Partick came out victorious with a 6-5 victory.  The final end being particularly exciting with 14 stones in play and KA lying only one shot but with the hammer.  The last shot of the night required the opposition to perform an 8 foot raise to push our second shot out and take a 2 and the game.  Just too hard for the KA man who only just missed to take his own shot out but leave the shooter lying for a one. 

Partick 0 0 1 0 3 0 2 0
Kelvinside 1 X 0 1 0 2 0 1

Next stop revenge on Cadder in the final for the Allan Cup Defeat.

Update - Sadly no grand prize in the Cup.   In a close final Cadder came out triumphant with a 7-4 victory. 

After a thrilling Pairs competition this year's winners are Roy Lauder and Graham Ross. Pairs is a super game and very active - 3 stones each and only 2 ends per game meant that it was fast and furious. There was certainly a bit of fury as distinctly lucky shots were complained about. The TMO never saw a thing!


It was a close competition finishing 4-1 for Graham and Roy. Quite a marathon starting at 5.30 and finishing at 9.30 so only the fit were left standing. All the more astonishing then that the winners were Roy who is still recovering from a broken ankle and Graham is a bit over 55 lasted the pace!     

We recommend that you get your name in for next year.
