Congratulations to John Niven and his team of Pauline Alexander, John McOmish and Mike Wood. With a target of winning at least three ends to take the title, they held fast and had achieved their goal in the fifth end against Team Dale. This gave them a 4 - 2 lead but they celebrated in style by taking a 3 in the next end, giving them the final score of 7 - 5. It looks like nerves played a part in the final round with Team Howard having blinked slightly more than our deserved winners.
Congratulations are especially due to two new members having joined during the season. John McOmish who played in stead of Tegan Williams (another new member, who is still injured) and Julia Mackey who took over skipping when Stuart had to withdraw (with another injury). It is always difficult to skip with and against teams that you do not know the strengths and weaknesses of. Julia however was a quick learner and won her last couple of games with relative ease giving her a third place finish in the league.
