 The Board of Directors of Lanarkshire Ice Rink Plc are delighted to announce, following the First Minister's statement on the 22nd of September and after receiving further confirmation from SportScotland, that the Rink will open for Curling on Monday 28th September. 

The first competition will be the annual Opening Bonspiel at 2.30pm. This is already fully subscribed with many staying for a meal after the game. 

One immediate result of the First Minister's statement is that, for the foreseeable future, Curlers playing in the 8.10 session will NOT be allowed to enter the Lounge Bar after their game.

East Kilbride and Haremyres Win the Boyd Senior League

The Semi Finals of the 22nd Boyd Senior competition saw Dippool take on Avondale Heather '2' and Wishaw versus East Kilbride and Haremyres. After a slow start the EK & H team with Willie Craig playing lead and skip and wife Jackie playing last stones scored five ends in a row winning 6 shots to 2.  The other semi was virtually identical with Dippool, skipped by Jim Sandilands coming from 2 down to win 8 shots to 2.
In both the 3rd / 4th place play off and the Final things seemed to be heading in the same one sided direction. In the former, Wishaw found themselves 6 - 2 down after 4 ends. Two threes and a one saw them 3 up playing the last end. Avondale Heather were not deterred however and played a solid last end, scoring 4 shots to take third place.
The Final proved to be even more up and down with EK & H holding a ten shots to one lead with just three ends to play. Dippool came back with four shots at each of the sixth and seventh ends and were lying 4 shots when Jackie played her last stone. If she was nervous she didn't show it and a superb shot to the four foot circle gave her victory.
The Winners
Jackie Craig 4th, Willie Dykes 3rd, Bill Gibson 2nd and Willie Craig lead & skip with Alan Turner, President HISC 

Runners Up Dippool
Eric Warren lead, John Tough 2nd, Jim Sandilands skip and Billy Sommerville 3rd
