29/4 - AGM Notice added
Dear Members of Gogar Park Curling Club
I hope you enjoyed a successful season and are enjoying time off the ice – although today’s weather suggests we are still in the depths of winter!
It is that time of year that we get the chance to get together off the ice and review the administration and success of the club and its members. To that end I advise that :
Our AGM will be at 7.30pm on Thursday 19 May at Murrayfield Ice rink.
With best wishes
Huge congratulations to Bruce Mouat and his team on the wonderful achievement of winning the World Juniors !!
The Mixed League rounded off with the final games and best attendance ever at its end-of-season meal on 15 March. The omens are good for - at last - getting back up to 8 teams for next season. In the meantime, here are the winners of the round robins with the Donnie McPherson trophies:
First half winners: Caroline Carnie, Malcolm Winning, Lorna McDowall, Mike Wilkinson (skip)
Second half winners: Mike Wilkinson, Jim Preacher, Heather Davis, Nigel Fairhead, Iain McDowall (skip)

Congratulations to Lindsay Scotland, who was in the winning team of the Scottish Masters at Greenacres. See report on the RCCC website, and the Photo gallery
Member’s Update 15 November 2015
The season is underway and I trust that everyone is now well into the swing of their various leagues.
Just one or two points to bring to your attention
1. A big thank you to all members for their timely submission of subscription monies and ice fees. Our new membership secretary, Andrew Barr, has done a sterling job in pulling this all together in his first year in post and I am most grateful for the time and effort he has given to the club. Andrew has also provided each and every member with an update of our membership – something that we have been missing for a few years now – and this has been enthusiastically received. Again a big thank you to Andrew.
2. Bob’s Broom This annual competition against the Bank of Scotland is to be played on Friday 4 December at 17:30. We need two teams for this match and the stakes are high! This match has been played for many years and to date Gogar have always won! I would hate to be the President who incurred the first loss so I would ask you all to consider playing – it’s a fun match with a meal afterwards. It would be nice to get some strength in our teams so please think about helping me out with this. Please indicate your availability by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org
3. Gumley Fund After two successful applications for hoodies for Gogar Park Young Curlers and the provision of Super League Trophies the Committee are looking for fresh ideas. The fund is there as a vehicle to further the ambitions of Gogar Park Curling Club, furthering the sport of curling. If anyone has an idea or a project that requires funding then please come forward and speak to myself or any other member of the Committee. We are keen to continue the success of the inaugural two projects.
Enjoy the run up to Christmas.
Club Coaching Session
The club’s coaching session of the season was held on 10th October. 10 members attended this engaging session which was focussed on improving our deliveries and sweeping skills. Many thanks to both Ian and Margaret for sharing their time with us and teaching so graciously.
Past President Edith
New Season Information
Fresh applications are invited to the Gumley Fund.
The fund exists to be used to further our sport within our club. There is a considerable amount in the fund and it is for the members to spend. Last season two projects were passed through committee and resulted in the GPYC purchasing club hoodies which gives them a great identity boost. We also provided four bespoke trophies for the Super Leagues.
Any club members may apply to the fund through the committee. If you have an idea we will be only too happy to hear about it.
