26 Oct 2013 – Thistles were third in Auckland Curling's Premier League in 2010, second last year, and their consistent top results were rewarded with a well-deserved 2013 title.

Liz Matthews, Glenys Taylor, Pauline Farra, Christine Bewick and alternate Chloe Li beat last year's champions Ayrshire Rockers in the semi-final. They then went on to control their final against Ian Ford, Kenny Williamson, Anthony Derrick and Craig Bickerstaff, leading all the way for a 9-1 win.

19 Oct 2012 – Auckland Curling's 2012 season came to a close in mid-October with the club's Mixed Doubles championship.

Liz Matthews capped off a great year when she and playing partner Ian Ford held off a strong challenge from Waverley Taylor and Kieran Grieve in the final.

The 14 teams contested a lightning competition, with 5 draws of 4-end games completed in just over 4 hours.

All sides started with 2 games in the first three rounds, the draw having been determined by lot. Teams were then ranked by the number of wins, draws, ends won and points scored.

The four sides to qualify for semi-finals were Kelsi Heath and Kieran Ford, Liz Matthews and Ian Ford, Lucienne Langille and Dean Fotti (all on 2 wins), while Waverley Taylor and Kieran Grieve had a win and a draw.

18 Oct 2011 – The Shy Teds side of Kieran Ford, Brett Sargon, Keswick Pearson and Morgan Long, 2010 Auckland Under-21 champions, stepped up a notch when they won this year's Auckland Premier League title.

They beat Team Bauer 5-4 in the Final. Team Bauer (Alex Bauer, Nick Lambert, Katie Bauer and Emily Whelan) were the top qualifiers for the playoff rounds after topping round robin play with 14 wins from 17.

30 Sep 2011 – An Auckland Curling Club team has won the Victoria Curling Association's 2011 Open Bonspiel title.

The 8-team tournament was held at Melbourne's Medibank Icehouse on 26-28 September in conjunction with the Australian Junior, Senior and Mixed Doubles Championships.

Al Langille, Kenny Thomson, Dean Fotti and Ian Ford started their tournament with a less than convincing draw in their first game against a local Victorian side. They clicked in the second match though, recording an 11-2 win over the other visiting side, this one from Queensland.
