Delivering a fine start to the season
Competitive Wheelchair Curling was back once again in the Highland Capital when Scotland's top wheelchair curlers converged on Inverness to take part in the 2nd Highland Wheelchair Curling Triples Competition on Tuesday 10th and Wednesday 11th September 2013 at Inverness Ice Centre. The event was hosted by Highland Wheelchair Curling Club and sponsored by TESCO Inverness.
On Tuesday morning the curlers were piped onto the ice by piper Fraser Menzies from Nairn. Then Depute Provost Cllr. Bet McAllister delivered the first stone of the competition to start off the event.
On Tuesday evening, the City of Inverness Highland Council held a civic reception for the curlers, assistants, sponsors and volunteers. This was held in the magnificent surroundings of the Inverness Caledonian Thistle Stadium where Samantha Skinner and her team laid on a fantastic three course meal which was enjoyed by all.
There was some very skilful curling from all the curlers during the event which included Scottish/GB and Development squad players and club curlers. With the Paralympic team in Denmark it meant that six teams battled it out for the top prize with the first 5 games being played in a round robin format. This was followed by the finals and play-offs. 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 with 4 wins and 1 draw. The draw came in the first game on Wednesday morning against another North team of Mike McKenzie and Jackie Cayton (Elgin) and Craig Carter (Aberdeen). Both teams met in the final where Team Simpson beat Team McKenzie 9 - 6.
The TESCO Trophy (the Victory Torch) was presented to the winners by Rhona Brindle, Community Champion TESCO Extra Inverness. The Prizes of beautifully engraved slates (to coincide with the theme Natural Scotland) were presented by Keith Petrie, Ice Rink Manager.
Mo Simpson, Club Secretary said, "Once again Highland Wheelchair Curling Club have been delighted to host the Highland Wheelchair Curling Triples event. Like last years' inaugural competition, this year has been a great success, bringing wheelchair curlers from all over Scotland to compete in what we think is a unique event in the Wheelchair Curling calendar.
As well as TESCO Inverness providing the main sponsorship, we are extremely grateful to the Highland Council Common Good Fund, City of Inverness, Inverness Caledonian Thistle, Inverness Ice Centre, Ashers Bakery Nairn, Dicksons, Fayre-Ness, Rowanhill Natural Crafts, and Go Outdoors to name a few. Also, to 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.
2014 is a big year – as well as the Winter Olympics and Paralympics in Sochi, Russia, Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Year of the Homecoming and the Independence Vote – it is also our club's 10th anniversary so we are going to invite a couple of International teams and hold the event over three days same time next year ."
