The Drawn Triples Competition Semi Finals played on the 3rd November, despite having to bring in both Billy and Dave Pointer as reserves to replace Kevin and Juan.
Geoff, John Rimell and Ewan forced their way over the line in the 18th end after the teams had been neck and neck at 6 all after 10 ends before Geoffs team picked up a 5 in end 11.
Not to be outdone Ian Patterson, Joan and April picked up an 8 in the 14th end to level the game for the 3rd time. This was a high quality game with no quarter being given by either team and would have been a worthy final.
John W, Steve and Ron were being held at 5 all by Dave Pointer, Pauline and Billy until they lost a costly 6 in the 7th end and never recovered their early form. John Corbett was brought in as a substitute to replace Billy for the second half.
The triples final originally planned for Tuesday 17th November will have to be re arranged due to the travel restrictions between municipalities imposed by the Local Authorities.
Thanks to all the members for complying with the dress code and timely arrival which allowed us to get started on time.
The Drawn Pairs competition will start in early January, after we have completed the triples and the draw will be made just prior to the start of that competition to ensure everybody that enters are able to see it through to its conclusion.
Last years winners were- Triples- Hal Briscoe, Christine Naughton and Nabil Hamami
