Symington Cup

Lockerbie and Dumfries come together in curling celebration.
A new competition designed to bring lady curlers from Lockerbie and Dumfries together in a spirit of fellowship and friendship reached its climax at Dumfries on Friday 11th March. 8 teams, each with 2 Lockerbie players and 2 for Dumfries, competed over a series of 4 end games for the Symington Cup. This cup was donated as a legacy from the Symington Club, now sadly wound up, that had curled for many years out of Lockerbie. It was fitting that two of the lady curlers, one from Dumfries and one from Lockerbie had previously been members of Symington. The competition that had been established to strengthen the links between the two centres was a great success. The format allowed players who had previously only met as opponents to play together in integrated teams and new friendships were forged. There was some excellent curling, both at Lockerbie in October and again on Friday 11th March. The winning rink was skipped by Fiona Hardie from Dumfries, with Margot Woods Lockerbie, Maureen Woods (D) and Anne Vevers (L). Runners up were Valerie Davidson (L), Marion Mather (D), Margaret Reavley (L), and May Bryden (D). Thomas Tosh from Thornhill generously sponsored the competition and provided prizes that were very well received.
