Normal Service - Resumed

Apologies for having missed the start of the season, for reasons of motorbiking pleasure.
I have now returned and will be updating the site as normal.  I am trying to catch up with the results of the games that I have missed and will update them when I get the score cards.
In the Meantime.

Mike v Sandy
Mike suffering from a first time failure of the (now scrapped) Rota system, took on Sandy short handed.  A score of 4 for Sandy in the third end seemed to halt Team Woods resistance and Sandy went on to record a 10 - 4 victory.
Lindsay v John G
Lindsay deputising for her dad, as is now traditional in the Knockout, had a tight fight against a short handed Team Good.  With John leading 6 - 3 after five ends, Linsday made good use of the last two ends to record an 8 - 6 victory
FINAL - Sandy v Lindsay
The final, between two previous winners, ensured that the KO would be won by a (born) Nicoll for the third successive year.  Team Sandy obviously had a point to prove with a dominant performance, although the feminine side of the family (is she still family, now she is married?) ensured that he couldn't score more than 2 per end. Team Sandy however restricted 'big sis' to a single end and took the title with a 7 - 1  scoreline. 
The Nicoll family should be warned, they have never won it 4 years in a row !
Congratulations to Sandy, Dave Wyllie, Cathy Maclean, Liz Nicoll/Alasdair Robertson

Annual Dinner and Prizegiving

The annual dinner and prizegiving will be held at the Longniddry Inn on Friday 20th April 2018, 7 for 7.30pm.

President v Vice President Mon 19-3-18

The Presidents teams for this vital game are as follows:-
1.   Graeme, Lindsey, Sheena, Justyna
2.   Sandy, John G, Cathy, Pauline

The Vice President's rinks will be selected from :-
Pam, Morgan, Dale, Rosie, Dave W, Stanley S, Stuart and Karen.

The game will be immediately followed by (hopefully a VERY short AGM) and supper.

Leagues - Final Positions

The last shots game of the season was between Mike's Rink and Morgan's Squad.  Morgan, hoping to capitalise on Mikes absence needed a 'decent' win to overtake Sandy for the final steak pies of the season.  Team Wood, led by David Wyllie, with new recruits Adam and Alsadair for the entire competition was not in the mood to suffer another defeat like in his first game against Sandy. Following a 'good' win against John (geddit?) he was hoping to maintain his form.  Hopes were strengthened when he added Graeme (Sandy's third) to assist.
The game was unlike a proper shots game, in as much as it was low scoring, which benefited team Wood (Wyllie).  Dave scored excellent singles against potentially large scores to frustrate Morgan and lead to questions being asked if Graeme was playing for Mike (Dave) or for Sandy.  The answer, of course, Graeme was playing for the pie!
With the final stone, Morgan failed to upgrade his 2 into a 3, which would have earned him a peel, so the final score was 5 - 4 to Dave Wyllie.
Due to his first round defeat Dave finishes the shots competition in last place, however he can take heart, If this had been a regular competition, he would have finished second to Sandy (on ends) .
So Congratulations go to Sandy, Graeme, John N and Sheena for securing the Shots Competition.

The loss in this final game means that Sandy and Morgan finish top of the Peter Allen Shield competition on six wins each.  Team Nicoll Snr. however secure the Shield with a 5 end margine.
Congratulations to Morgan, Dale, Pam and Rosie.

Shots Competition - progress

Team Nicoll Junior inflicted a huge 14 - 1 win against a very under strength Mike Wood team to take a strangle hold on the shots trophy.  With one game to go Sandy now has a 13 shot advantage over his father.  The final games will see Morgan pitted against Mike (who is still sidelined) and Sandy against John Good's team.
Meanwhile in the Peter Allen Shield race, the table is topped by both Nicoll teams tied on 6 wins.  Team Nicoll senior leads the race with the advantage of having won four more ends than 'junior'.  Sandy needs a big win over John win take the shield and even then has to hope that his father will falter against Team Wood.
