Unfortunatley the match against Fife did not go the way P&K had hoped however it was a good way for the team to try new pairings and to prepare for the Jamboree in June.

Fife fielded a very strong team which won the senior matches 4-0, the girls did fair a little better with a 1-1 draw.

Results were as follows:

Emily Ogilvy and Laura Walker lost to Louise Kenny and Elaine Moffat 3&2, Fiona Ramsay and Gwen Lambie lost to Fiona Hastie and Rachel Hanlon 3&2, Jillian Milne and Jane Yellowless lost to Lorna Bennett and Susan Jackson 1 down and Carol Muir and Ailie Burnett lost 5&4 to Lorna Dyball and Dorothy Ford. 
Eilidh Watson and Emily Aird won 1 up against Sam Munro and Shannon Maguire, and Hannah Robb and Erica Burnett lost to Lauren Whyte and Nicky Taylor 3&2

Many thanks go to Shona Leighton our match secretary who organised this event and also to Fife for hosting this annual event. We look forward to welcoming Fife to P&K next year.

County Squad member Eve Muirhead has had a pretty hectic time over the past year, I am sure you all know that she has been working flat out on her curling preparation for the Olympics in Vancouver. The team of Eve, Jackie Lockhart, Kelly Wood and Lorna Vevers, did really well, although they were not in line for medals, they had some excellent wins and all their games were close run things.
As soon as they returned from Canada the played the finals of the Scottish Championships which they won. So off they went again to Canada for the World Championships. Unfortunately Jackie Lockhart, sustained a severe knee injury during the Scottish finals, necessitating surgery, so Annie Laird took her place in the team. Jackie is well on her way to recovery.
At the Worlds, Eve and her rink excelled themselves, only missing the Gold Medal by loosing at an extra end in the final against Germany, in the semifinal they trounced the favourites Canada!
Very well done to them all, returning home with the Silver Medal. I am sure they will go on to even greater things in the future.
I hope Eve will now have some time to relax and play some golf, at which she also excels!!
