All games were played on Monday afternoons in two sections of 9 teams with the winner of each section playing against each other to decide the overall winners.
The Crook was very kindly donated by John and Judy MacKenzie in 1990 and the 1st winners were;- D Horner : S Kerr : B Gourlay and B Rooney (Skip).
The Crook was Originally played for at The Summit centre and then one season at The Lagoon in Paisley, before it moved to Braehead when the Curling Rink opened in season 1999 – 2000. There has been several distinguished names on the trophy since then but the main aim of the competition is still to create a friendly, yet slightly competitive competition for the 50 + age group.
It was slightly closer in Section “B” but Bill Marshall’s team managed to score 12 points with 6 wins and 2 losses and opened up a 2 point gap over the chasing teams of John Finlay and Jack Steven who both finished on 10 points with 5 wins and 3 losses.
The stage was then set for the final on Monday the 18th of February.
Once again Ken was skipping and lost one against the hammer in the 1st end. However, with the hammer they took a 3 in the second end to open up a 2 shot lead. Bill struck back with a 2 in the 3rd end to go all square. Both teams then exchanged 2 shots in the next 2 ends so it was 5 shots each after 5 ends and all to play for. With the hammer Ian’s team scored 2 in the 6th end and Bill’s team went on the attack to try and score 2 shots to even up the game going into the last end. However they were kept pinned down and unfortunately lost another 2 to go 4 shots behind going into the final end. Bill's team of Ian Hamilton, Bruce Benson, Robin Shand put their opposition under pressure and were lying 3 shots when it came down to the skip stones. However Ken took out one of the stones with his 1st shot and put the pressure back on Bill. As there was nowhere to hide Bill had to try and take out Ken’s lying stone but had to roll out to the wings to prevent another take out shot down the centre. Bill’s 2nd last stone stone stayed slightly wide just missing the target stone and sailing through the house. Bill did score a one with his final stone but the game was lost by 6 shots to 9.
