New this year….. Friar’s Briar (safety) Caps!!!
Richmond folks have a ‘merchandise offer’ ! There will be Friar’s Briar Caps at the Bonspiel this year. They are being made by Ray Howard in Victoria and have protection in the lining to save one’s head should one slip or fall and hit the ice. They will cost $45 (cash) each. If the demand surpasses the 10 being brought by Don Allen, orders will be taken and sent out afterwards. Pictures of these caps can be seen below.
(Word is, if you are wanting these hats, give the Registrar a ‘head’s up’ and if the demand seems to be there, Don Allen may be able to arrange to bring more than the 10 mentioned above.)
