On Saturday evening, supporters and friends of the Edinburgh International Curling Championship gathered together in the club rooms at the Murrayfield rink for a fundraising dinner.
The Edinburgh International Curling Championship Committee wish to thank its many sponsors including the Braid Hills Hotel, Belhaven Best, Murrayfield Curling Ltd and Edinburgh Curling Club Ltd. The Committee also thank everone who attended yesterday evening for their support. They invite all to come along to the rink to watch the best teams in Scotland and teams from across Europe competing for this year's Championship, November 27-29.
It was a great night! We were well fed and watered, and royally entertained.
Guests gather for the evening.
The trophies were on show.
The club rooms were full to capacity on the night.
The Championship Committee Chairman, Trevor Dodds, was in charge of the proceedings.
David B Smith was his usual sparkling form. Mind you there was the one about the swan, the duck, and the lawyer that I didn't understand at all!
Robin Copland stood in at short notice as the second speaker and was in fine form.
Trevor's better half, Catherine, failed to draw my number in the raffle.
And Robin Aitken gave the vote of thanks.
Here's the Committee. Back L-R: Ernie Prior, John Dignan, Robin Copland, Iain Baxter, Robin Aitken. Front: Ian Seath, Trevor Dodds, Anne Marie Ross (plus Colin Hamilton, not in the photo).
