In the words of Mr Graham Barnes...
On the occasion of his retiral from active curling
Many thanks for all your good wishes and for making my last game as enjoyable as it was!
I have loved my 40 years of Giffnock curling, though there may have been times when my expressions of wonder at the speed and direction my fellow team members had delivered their stones at might have showed something other than pleasure! I am very sorry that I have had to stop playing a bit earlier than I had hoped but, no complaint, I have great memories of my time on the ice, nothing surer!
So to you and all members of the Club, thanks again for the fun and fellowship.
Wishing you all good health and good curling,
