British & Irish Championships

Tremendous weekend of Tow just past at the British & Irish championships in Bedford ,the biggest ever haul of medals from the Scottish teams at an outdoor championships.4 Cornhill lads with a puller each from Tinto,Kinneff,Braemar and Fife&Kinross represented Scotland A in a tough 11 team league where they sneaked into the semis against the favourites and multiple medallists at international level Norton who were representing England A Scotland’s aggressive tactics proved too much for England and Scotland made it thru to the final winning 2-0 with the 1st end being re-centered, Ireland A was too strong in the final and won the gold medal 2-0.Next up the Cornhill lads and lassies represented Scotland in the mixed where after a 10 team league and overcoming England B in the semis they came up against England A in the final the European champions though were in fine form and England won 2-0. Ayrshire ladies also won 2 medals on day 1 with a gold in the 520 and silver in the 560.
Sunday was club day where the teams pull in the club colours Cornhill started the day with their best ever result at this level overcoming world class opponents G&B from Rep Ireland in the 600kg semis and then rattling up Norton again and winning gold in a feisty 2-1 win truly a fine performance especially losing the toss in the deciding 3rd ends in both semi and the final. The 4 Cornhill ladies then made up a team with 4 Irish lassies to get some extra pulling and made it thru to the last 4 in the 520 but just missed out on the bronze. The men entered the 560kg event and once again made the semis, but no final this time after losing to Upper Eden from England, the bronze pull was hard going but Cornhill got another medal winning 2-0 against Haldon from England. Last comp of the day was the mixed 580kg and with a lot of bodies now tiring 6 teams entered for a final chance to win medals, Cornhill proved worthy winners and won in fine style without dropping an end. Ayrshire ladies added to their medal haul by winning the 520 event, Elgin were also in Bedford competing in just their 2nd international event and stuck in both days and just missed out on medals in the 640 and 720 events on Sunday
