On Friday, May 4, 2012, Charlotte Curling Club hosted the first half of the 1712 Cup. This is the second year of the annual event against the Palmetto Curling Club from nearby Greenville, SC. Four rinks, four matches, and one great night of curling fun was had by all. Each club won 2 events but the event uses the Points and Ends system for scoring, where Palmetto leads Charlotte 34.50 to 32.25.
Sheet 1 – Palmetto 13 (13.25 points) Charlotte 7 (5.75 points)
Sheet 2 – Charlotte 8 (12 points) Palmetto 3 (3.75 points)
Sheet 3- Palmetto 8 (12 points) Charlotte 3 (3.75 points)
Sheet 4 – Charlotte 7 (10.75 points) Palmetto 6 (5.50 points)
The second half will be hosted by the Palmetto club at a date and time to be determined in the near future. Each club will again field four rinks and the club with the most total points after all eight matches will own the 1712 Cup. All club members will have a chance to participate in the event and new teams will be drawn based on interest and participation. Look for information soon on how you can play for the Cup!
