Willie Frame Receives Medal for 50 Years Membership RCCC

At the Avondale Heather Curling Club Prizegiving Dinner on Saturday, one of the longest serving members, Willie Frame of Haspielaw, was presented by his son, Don Frame, with a RCCC medal to recognise 50 years of curling and membership of RCCC.  Willie started curling in his early twenties with Hamilton and Thornyhill Curling Club and progressed quickly through the ranks, demonstrating his real understanding of tactics.  He played at Scottish, European and World Championships as well as in all the Ice rink and Club competitions.  Willie was part of the first Scottish team to win the European Championships.  Some years later, he joined Avondale Heather Curling Club and to this day thoroughly enjoys the competitive as well as the social side of curling.  He moved into coaching some of the younger members, including some skips who now play and are winning regularly in the Heather. All of Willie's immediate and extended family curl. Willie is a great inspiration to the Club and everyone learns when they play alongside him.  To commemorate this fantastic achievement, RCCC (Royal Caledonian Curling Club), present the medal to only a few every year across Scotland.
