STEICO UK’s Curling Championship
Team Barbarians slid to victory in STEICO UK’s inaugural Curling Championship, held at England’s only dedicated curling rink in Tunbridge Wells, Kent. The victorious and undefeated team, comprised of Mark Wilson of Panel Agency, Steve Place of Woodbridge Timber, Pete Stringer of New World Timber Frame and ably supported by STEICO’s very own, Alex Campbell.
A total of 6 teams competed ‘head to head’ for the honour of becoming the ice champions, including Travis Perkins, Buildbase and Lawsons, with the Steico teams doing the honourable thing of letting the customers win!!
Heiko Seibert – MD of STEICO Group Sales made the long trek from Germany to take part, but judging by his technique and his team’s inability to score a single point, wished he had stayed at home!!
For next seasons re-match, the ‘throwing’ techniques and sweeping endurance will need to be much improved for this ‘sedate’ sport, if the Barbarians are to be overcome!
