The Braehead Pairs Competition was held at Intu Braehead on Saturday past. A great showing with ten teams entered and an age range of 12 to 65+ on show. The Braehead Rockers were well represented with 4 members taking part along with a member from the Braehead Virtual Club. To add some international spice to the event it was supported by Aileen Neilson (Paralympic Skip for Team GB) and playing partner former Paralympian Michael McCreadie. Thinking we couldn't top that? Well yes we did with Ross Paterson and Gregor Cannon from the British Curling Squad Team Drummond - Stirling Gin.
After 4 games for each it left Ross Paterson and Dominic Ferrie to play Gregor Cannon and James Bacon in the Final. Gregor and Rocker James controlled the game taking an early lead which Ross and Dominic battled well to recover. A great game and event resulted in Gregor and James being the overall winners, well done to them!
A special thanks to all who took park, of all ages and abilities.
Lets hope this will encourage more Braehead Members to get involved in some local Ice Rink Competitions.
