Wheelchair Curling Triples 2014
Once again some of the countries top wheelchair curlers converged on the Highland Capital to take part in the 3rd Highland Wheelchair Curling Triples Competition at Inverness Ice Centre.
The event was hosted by Highland Wheelchair Curling Club and Inverness Ice Centre and sponsored by TESCO Inverness.
On Tuesday morning the curlers were all piped onto the ice by piper Fraser Menzies from Nairn. Then Deputy Provost Cllr. Bet McAllister delivered the first stone to start off the event.
During the three days we saw some very skilful curling from all the curlers. With the Paralympic team getting prepared to go to Canada/USA it left six teams, including two teams from England (Northern Ice), to battle it out in a ten game round robin for the top prize. Last year, the North team of Mo Simpson (Inverness), Jim Gault (Lossiemouth) and guest player Ian Donaldson (Dumfries) topped the leader board at the end of the round robin to come out the winners.
This year the TESCO Triples Trophy is taking a trip south as one of the Northern Ice teams (Stephen McGarry, Paul McGinty and Gary Logan) , along with some engraved quaichs, which were to given to represent our ‘Highland Homecoming’ theme. Mo Simpson, Club Secretary said, “Once again Highland Wheelchair Curling Club are delighted to host the Highland Wheelchair Curling Triples event. Like last years’ competition, it is has been a great success, and has brought wheelchair curlers from all over Scotland and also two teams from England to compete, in what we think, is a unique event in the Wheelchair Curling calendar.
We are extremely pleased that TESCO Inverness (our main sponsors) have announced that they will continue to support us for the next 3 years. We are also very grateful to the Highland Council Common Good Fund, City of Inverness, Inverness Caledonian Thistle, Inverness Ice Centre, Ashers Bakery Nairn, and Dicksons of Inverness for their continued support. Also to McLeod Trophies, Perthshire Visitor Centre, and Hobbycraft plus all contributors of our various fundraising activities, and for all the other donations that we received towards the event - A BIG thank you! –it’s impossible to name everyone.”
