Club AGM Agenda 2015

World Juniors

Many congratulations to both teams at the World Juniors, with Bruce taking Bronze and Gina taking Silver! A great performance by both teams.

New Super League Trophies

Work on the new trophies funded by the Gumley Fund is progressing well, and we hope to have them all ready for presentation at the AGM.  See the example photo and description below:

This curling trophy has been designed to allow a historic record of winning teams to be kept, without the need to add plaques to it or increase its size over time. Shaped like a curling stone, it is made up of a cast bronze handle, two wooden halves and a central bronze band. Its features include:

  • A Gogar Park club badge will be fixed flush with  the trophy's wooden surface, (not the bronze disc as shown)
  • A bronze band around the edge, engraved with the name of the Trophy
  • A scroll of paper inside the handle on to which a record or the winners can be added to each year. This scroll can be pulled open to view at any time
  • Storage space for extra scrolls inside the trophy allowing the records of winners to be kept for many years to come, without having to add to the size of the trophy
  • Each trophy will be 150mm in diameter.

Congratulations to our Henderson Bishop Winners

Congratulations to the team who won the Henderson Bishop - Jenny Barr, Susan Kesley, Fran Stretton and Morna Aitken 

Past Presidents' Bonspiel

Congratulations to GPYC who won the bonspiel. See the photo page. It was a wonderful occasion with 8 teams competing in the true spirit of the game ... plenty fun was had. It was so good to see faces new and old. Was it really 15 years since Mr Still came to the ice rink! Thanks to Trevor for lubricating the occasion with sloe gin and to Catherine for all the organisation and sponsorship. Thanks to everyone who came, and kept a good tradition alive and kicking.

Congratulations to our Junior Champions

The winning two rinks  of the Scottish Junior Ladies and Mens Championships were skipped by Gena Aitken and Bruce Mouat. 

This is a tremendous achievement and we wish them and their teams every success in the World Championships in Estonia next month. Other Gogar members in the Ladies team were Naomi Brown and Rowena Kerr.

Gumley Fund

Two projects are in the process of being supported through grants from the Gumley Fund:

The Committee are fair excited at the new trophies that are going into production for the Super Leagues. They are unique and we are sure you will like them. Thanks to Nicola Hume for  her wonderful design work.

The young curlers have been awarded a £1000 grant through the Gumley Fund to help provide hoodies for the members  A great way to promote our game through an active, well established club. The committee felt this was a good investment in the future.

All members are able to apply to the Gumley Fund  with ideas for promotion of the sport of curling:- be it ways to encourage others to play, or support of club activities better the sport as a whole.

This fund is for the whole Club to benefit from but we need your ideas.
