East Kilbride News - - DISTRICT NEWS -

The Avon­dale Heather Curl­ing Club recog­nised one of their long­est serv­ing mem­bers at the an­nual prize­giv­ing din­ner.

Wil­lie Frame re­ceived a Royal Cale­do­nian Curl­ing Club (RCCC) medal to recog­nise 50 years of curl­ing and mem­ber­ship.

He started curl­ing in his early 20s with Hamil­ton and Thorny­hill Curl­ing Club and pro­gressed quickly through the ranks, de­mon­strat­ing his real un­der­stand­ing of tac­tics.

Wil­lie played at Scot­tish, Euro­pean and World cham­pi­onships as well as in all the ice rink and club com­pe­ti­tions and was part of the first Scot­tish team to win the Euro­pean cham­pi­onships.

Some years later, he joined Avon­dale Heather Curl­ing Club and to this day thor­oughly en­joys the com­pet­i­tive as well as the so­cial side of curl­ing.

He moved into coach­ing some younger mem­bers, in­clud­ing some skips who now play and are win­ning reg­u­larly in the Heather.

Wil­lie’s en­tire im­me­di­ate and ex­tended fam­ily curl.

Hon­our Wil­lie Frame was pre­sented with the medal by his son Don­ald
