The drawn pairs draw and started on the 19th January, but due to the latest Municipality lockdowns further rounds will need to wait until the borders are re-opened fully to the members.
There were a number of close games and a tie break end required in one of the 4 games played.
George Roullier and John Wilson beat David Prain and Ian Gray 21- 13 with Ian and David always playing catch up after going 7 down in the first 3 ends.
John Corbett and Clive Nuttall beat Juan Abeal and John Rimell despite a spirited fight back over the last 4 ends and they had a couple of opportunities to make the four shots required to force the extra end.
Manolo Suarez and David Pointer beat Bill Neal and Pauline Ward 19-10 with a good team performance.
In the closest game and the last game on the rinks Ian Patterson and Ron Fox beat Kevin Bravant and Joan Corbett 16-15 with a nail biting measure for shot on the first extra end.
Kevin and Joan went into the 18th end two shots down and Kevin managed to draw to bowls with 10 inches to force the extra end and both Ian and Kevin missed the jack with their last bowls to take the tie.
Well done to all the winning teams on day 1of this Competition and if the first series of matches are anything to go by we should have some interesting and close games in the remainder of the rounds.
Lets hope we can all get back together in a few weeks time.
