After initial wins by Dale's and Julia's teams they lined up for the final looking in relaxed mood.
Julia being one player short got off to a poor start with Dale's team getting away to a 5 - 0 start after two ends. Julia fought back by taking the next two ends to leave her trailing 5 - 4. Scoring back to back ends again in the final two ends of the game leveled the score at 6 - 6 to set up a Draw the Shot, winner take all, challenge.
With an audience from the Haddington players on the adjacent rinks Julia played first. Her shot ran slightly too deep and stopped at the back of the house. Dale then took his turn and held his nerve calling the anxious sweepers off to make a perfect (unswept) draw completely covering the button to take the applause and competition.
(Sorry Dale, no steak pies for this one!)
Congratulations to Dale, Pam, Rosie and Andrew - our season's first winners.
