Presidents Day

Presidents Day 2018

Brian & Sheena

We had glorious weather for President’s Day this year with play getting underway promptly at 2pm. President Brian welcomed everyone and explained the format of the competition.  Teams played in triples and 4 x 6-end games would decide the winners.  Bob Letchford had worked out the teams in advance with a change of rink and opponents after each game.  

An interval after two games was most welcome on such a hot day with ice creams available for all.  The usual sit-down meal was served by our kitchen ladies who had worked tirelessly throughout.  Brian said grace and we all tucked in.  After the meal, the winners were announced.  In joint first place were the teams of Jean King, Jan Hines and Edgar Sanders, and Bob Newton, Viv Kirkland and Colin Hutchings who each won three games and lost one with an identical shot difference of +15.  In third place also with three wins and one defeat was the team of Mike Kirkland, Sue Hearne and Mike Verity but with a lesser plus shot difference.  Congratulations to them all.

Third Place

Thanks to Brian’s generosity, a considerable amount of money was raised for the club funds.  Many thanks to Brian for a splendid day.
