Swiss Tour 2014
The Tour Party arrived at Murrayfield Ice Rink to be greeted by Area 5 Rep, John Good and a resplendent Piper. Assisting John were Neil Calvert and Area 5 President, Robin Aitken who attempted to yodell along with Maya.
The games were shared 2 each and also so were the shots 27 each.
Soup and sandwiches were served for lunch and prior to the Final Game against the RCCC Curlers, Tour Courier had to source a Scotland Rugby Top for Mani the Swiss who earlier on Tour received a blood transfusion and his surname is now Mc Willen.
The RCCC Curlers proved to strong against a tired but happy bunch of Swiss Curlers who I think we’re gearing up for the Final Dinner and Festivities.
Both RCCC President David Henderson and Vice President, Billy Howat were presented with Swiss Cow Bells. Billy can of course put his Bell to good use as he is Dairy farmer from Ayrshire.
The Final Dinner was enjoyed by over 100 Curlers and their Partners and the evening ended up with a Giant Conga to the music from the Swiss Musicians.
All to soon it was time for Auld Lang Syne and to say our farewells to the Swiss and those who either Curled or met the Tour Party will retain fond memories of the 2014 Swiss Curling Tour to Scotland.
