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.
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.
