2020 Aberdeen City Open Champions

Huge congratulations to Team Van Dorp who visited Aberdeen for game time, winning the comp they have entered many times previously for the first time. They brought over team mates with them as the competition struggled for entries this year, and we thank them for that, the make shift team qualified out their group also finishing fourth overall.

Team Barr (Kinross) qualified out their section unbeaten to make the final against van Dorp. Barr put pressure on van Dorp in the final with some great draws, but for Grant Jaap and his team edged them running them out of stones in the eight end.

Team Woolston, former champions of the City Open finished third beating team Magan in the 3/4 playoff. This was in preparation for them as they head to Dumfries for their national championships.

This year the City open had 16 teams from Norway, Netherlands, England and Aberdeen, next year 24 is our target, so spread the word and help us get back to 24 teams, and who knows the Horses might be back for it.

If anyone has any leads or would like to sponsor this great competition, please get in touch.

Cheers

Aberdeen City Open 2019

Aberdeen City Open Winners 2019 Team McNay


Aberdeen City Open hosted 16 teams of varying ability and age. Teams were split into two sections and played a schenkel for 3 games to determine who would play each other in the final. McNay and Edwards fought it out in the final having both won their sections. It was a tight final with McNay 2 down playing the last with hammer, it was a tense last shot but he made his shot for the 3 and claimed the Aberdeen City Open prize.

Other updates from Aberdeen City Open 2019 can be found via facebook on this link, with the usual bloggers creating a make shift team due a late team pull out. Will be back to usual next season!

Cheers
