Central: Tuesday 17th – Simcoe

Another early start as the bus leaves hotel at eight sharp, with morning class on the bus. Alan Campbell wins the tammy for his major fall on the ice previously.

It’s a foggy day outside, with zero visibility, so progress is slow as we drive the tobacco fields of Tilsenberg (Tilsenberg, my back still aches when I hear that word).

We arrived at Simcoe CC at 9 to another warm welcome as were piped in and onto the ice.  This was a tough day, and our scoring was not good. Not good scoring from Scotland, and we finished 17 shots down overall , despite a good win by Edradour.

We had a beer-sampling progamme before lunch, then a delicious fried perch lunch. Paul did the thanks and we began the trip to Niagara.

After a quick stop at the Erie Canal, we arrived to all the glitz and glamour of Niagara Falls. We had a quick drive through their winter light show, where there are over 3 million LED lights attached to trees.  Then at 8pm the American Falls were lit up especially for us  – blue and white and red and white for our 2 countries. What an honour!.

With a free night on our hands we headed to the Keg Steakhouse for steaks and beers then bed.
