The Club season traditionally begins with Presidents Day which, this year, is on Saturday 15th April.
This takes the form of a 'Spider' (for a bottle of Scotch!) followed by a 21 end game, split into 3 sessions of 5 ends, and ending with the final 6 ends.
Players draw matching counters for teams and rink numbers at the beginning of each session, and the result is a very satisfactory mixing up of everyone on the green.
This is followed by a meal, the presentation of winner's and booby prizes, and a few formalities to get the season under way.
