Opening Bonspiel/Knockout/League

Despite late call-offs due to a spate of illnesses and injuries (coinciding with the Rugby World Cup final), three teams of three set about a new format for the opening Knockout/league/bonspiel competition.  This was to be decided by Total Ends won over two five end games.

The first game saw Graeme (who traded Pam to the undermanned opposition) squaring off against  John Good's duo (and Pam).  A tight game that ended up peels with 3 shots each but more importantly John winning the last end to be up by a single end.

Second up was Graeme's team again against Julia's squad.  Graeme took a while to adapt from playing a drawing game to Julia's hitting style.  Again a tight game peels in shots and ends going in to the last end which Julia took by a single shot.

The final game, fittingly saw the two winning teams, each with three ends under their belt face each other.  John struck hard and fast taking the first two ends leaving Julia having to win the next three to take home the 'pies'. Julia took the third end but John secured the fourth giving him an unassailable lead and hands were shaken.

Congratulations to John Good, Rosie Clark and Pam Clark (grateful now for the team swap!) who take the Knockout (!) Trophy and the seasons first Steak Pies.
