What do Points Make ?

 A number of late call offs saw a depleted field of six, which included three 'skips' and two 'Points Virgins'.

Without last years winner or runner up, Graeme graciously volunteered himself and Julia to play first, which is usually considered a big disadvantage.  This and tricky ice saw them both get off to a poor start with Graeme considering he would lower his worst previous score. 

With good explanations of the 'exercises' and scoring and everyone pitching in with minding of the stones it was a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon for everyone and it turned out in the end to be an extremely close fought match both in the mens the ladies and the overall.

Rosie was the best performing President while Ian improved his previous best by 2 points. Jillian was the best 'first timer' and finished only 1 point off taking the ladies prize, won by Julia who upped last years score by 7 points.  Jillian's score was also only 3 points off the overall win - and all that while trying to come to grips with new shoes !

John Good, meanwhile, had got off to a great start end held the lead through to the second last end.  Graeme however came good at the last and was the only player to have an 8 point exercise (Chap and Lie) and stole it by 1 point in a relatively low scoring contest.

So its congratulations to Graeme and Julia.
