The Lanarkshire Ice Rink, Hamilton, celebrated its 40th birthday party last Saturday. Representatives from all the clubs that use the facility, past presidents, and directors were there to enjoy a bonspiel over three sessions, masterminded by manager Lockhart Steele who is of course World Senior Curling Champion as third for Keith Prentice.
