Dumbarton started the new season with their Opening Bonspiel on Saturday 28 September at Braehead Curling Rink.
Similar to last years inaugural opening bonspiel, participants were allocated into 4 rinks of 3, with each rink playing each other in a 3 end game. Unlike last year, the scores were kept for each individual game and the rink consisting of David Shanks (skip), Alex Brown and Ann Shanks were declared the winner with a score of +3.
Dumbarton welcomed 2 new members who joined the club during the summer, Karen Haggerty and Steve Magee, as well as guests Alex Brown, Kath Brown and John Dunlop from the Braehead Virtual Curling Club.
Once the curling was over, those who were able to stay assembled for the traditional pre-season dinner at Prezzo restaurant.
