AMOC Area 16 Curling on Ice Event 29th March 2015

The first AREA 16 Curling event was held on the 29th March 2015 at Fentons Curling Centre Nr Tunbridge Wells, 24 keen players all turned up and had a very competitive and enjoyable afternoon of curling, occupying the whole complex across 3 sheets (lanes) with 8 players on each sheet, 4 in each team, the banter grew louder with the challenge, along with periods of silence during intense concentration. There were 6 teams, Team, Virage, Lagonda, Vanquish, DB, Vulcan and Vantage. after a challenging 2 hours on the ice, with only 3 players falling over, but some very intense competition, Team Vulcan on sheet 1 (all guests from Area 7) I have to say, were the overall winners with the highest score of the afternoon.

The majority of the players then retired to a local pub, The Brecknock Arms, for a well earned drink and an excellent meal, our thanks go to the staff of the Brecknock Arms for accommodating 16 of us and for giving us such a good welcome.
