JUNE

First Meeting
The first meeting of Ladies Branch was held at Ellersly House Hotel, Edinburgh with a good turnout of representatives in attendance.

Royal Highland Show
Good weather attributed to a good attendance at the RCCC stand at the Royal Highland Show.
Ladies Branch representatives assisted President Alan Durno, Vice President David Henderson and the RCCC staff in entertaining visitors to the RCCC stand. Members and visitors were provided with a glass of wine and or a tea /coffee and a biscuit or cake.
Many thanks to all those who contributed home baking, this was very much appreciated.

JULY

Meeting – Henderson Bishop Draw
First week of July was a busy one, starting on Monday 1st with a meeting of the executive committee, Vice President Mary Anne McWilliam, Junior Vice President Marion Fraser, Treasurer, Gail Munro and myself at Cairnie House, Ingliston, headquarters of RCCC to make the draw for the Henderson Bishop Trophy.

Royal Garden Party
Tuesday 2nd saw Jenny and I along with our husbands, Alan and David attending the Royal Garden Party at The Palace of Holyroodhouse, unfortunately I think it was the only day it rained all summer and it poured down all day, but nevertheless we made the most of the situation and a good day was had by all. And no, we didn’t see the queen; it was difficult to see anyone as everyone was under an umbrella.

RCCC Junior Summer Camp
Wednesday 3rd  I was made very welcome at the RCCC junior Summer Camp held at The Peak Ice Rink,  Stirling.   The young curlers experience a high level of coaching, learn new game skills as well as taking part in other sporting activities and fun events, socialising and making new friends.

Graduation Day
Thursday 4th   The family were in Glasgow attending my daughter Aline’s graduation from Glasgow Caledonian University where she received her degree in Entertainment and Events Management.

AUGUST

Scottish Ladies Tour to Sweden
I attended a meeting of the Swedish tourists at Dunblane New Golf Club to hear how they are preparing for their tour to Sweden in November.  Captain Corrie Lawrence appears to have everything under control.   Good luck to Corrie and her team.

I hope you have been enjoying a glorious Scottish summer and look forward to seeing everyone in an Ice Rink over the coming season.
