A unique landmark was reached when Jim Motion received his winners prize. Jim played lead in Duncan McInnes's team which won the very first Farmers competition which was then sponsored by Lawrie & Symington back in 1980.

Tom Gibson (1940-2015)
It is with regret that the Directors at Hamilton Ice Rink, advise that Tom Gibson passed away on Monday afternoon (30th November).
Rather poignantly, Tom died whilst curling surrounded by many friends as well as curlers he had coached over many years.
Tom was of course a well-known and popular curler, but was also a respected and valuable member of the Board of Directors, having served as such for over 27 years. He brought his expertise as a civil engineer to the Board and his contribution, especially over the last few years, has been invaluable.
Tom was also a former president of Lanarkshire Ice Rink Club (twice) and in addition to his services as a Director, he has also served almost continuously on committee for over 20 years.
His input to the social side of the Ice Rink has been no less valuable, especially in connection with major events, such as the Grand Match and his infamous “Clyde Steamer” concoction.
At this sad time, our condolences go to Eileen and the family.
Tom will be greatly missed
Tom's funeral will take place on Monday 7th December at 12.30pm at South Lanarkshire Crematorium, Blantyre
