There was a resounding win for the Rhins O’ Gallowa’ Province over the Galloway Province rival in the Kinnear trophy, sponsored by Kinnear for Carpets, Port William, at Stranraer Ice Rink last Friday.

The Rhins teams in this mixed event had a runaway victory over the two sessions, racking up 80 shots to the Galloway Province’s 46.

The highest-up club in the winning province was Leswalt Curling Club, and the highest-up rink in that club was Katie Wright, Gerald Baillie, Rhona Baillie and Neville Wright, 12 shots up. The highest-up team in the losing province were Wigtown Curling Club’s rink of Christine Cannon, Jim Cannon, Louise Kerr, and Kevan Maguire who were eight shots up.

At the close of play, Galloway Province President Jim Cannon thanked everyone for taking part in the competition, but commented on how hard it was becoming to get players for daytime curling. He congratulated the winners and asked Rhins Province secretary Janette Sloan to present the prizes of hampers of goodies to the winning province team and the losing province team.

Rhins Province vice-president Trevor Harrison gave a vote of thanks the sponsors Kinnear for Carpets for their continuing support of the competition and to the two secretaries, Janette Sloan and Louise Kerr, for organising the rinks and the draw.
