Curling: Bute rinks do battle for Caldwell Cup

Donald Kinnear led his rink to victory in the Bute Curling Club competition for the Caldwell Cup at the Waterfront in Greenock.

Ten Bute players contested the trophy, with Donald leading Douglas MacDonald, June McKenzie and Nancy Kinnear against Beck Reid (skip), Margaret MacLeod and Muiriel Duncan, and Donnie MacLeod (skip), Colin Sharp and Hugh Yeamans.

The first of the three round-robin games saw Donald’s rink defeat Beck 7-6; Donnie beat Beck by a convincing margin in the second, but Donald defeated Donnie 6-2 in the deciding third game to secure the trophy.
