BUAS Bicentenary Bonspeil
Friday 15 February 2013

Following on from the very successful Launch of the Society’s Bicentenary in January a Bonspiel was held last week at Kelso Ice Rink. Sixteen Rinks drawn from all the local Show Societies, Agricultural Discussion Societies, NFU, RHET and the Department of Agriculture competed, with the Schenkel system used for scoring.

PNE Wind, Agrii and Thomas Sherriff Ltd gave generous Sponsorship for the Bonspiel, which was much appreciated and helped defray the costs for everyone.

After a very good meal at the Ice Rink in the evening the results of a tightly fought contest were announced : Winning Rink was Glendale Agricultural Society, represented by James Dixon (S), Jimmy Straughan, Joan Dixon and John Maxwell. Runners up was Border Union Agricultural Society, represented by Jonny McCririck (S), Peter Bowyer, Robert Walker and Neil Thomson and in third Place was Agrii, represented by Trevor Dodds (S), Neil McLain, Greig Baird, Christine McLain.

Everyone agreed that a hundred years was too long before having another such Bonspiel ! The 2013 version was very efficiently organised by Robert Walker, Peter Bowyer and Harry Dodds.
