THE CAPTAIN'S CUP
A new knockout pairs competition saw its final played in front of lots of spectators on the afternoon of Friday 4th March at Pedras. With a couple of ends to play, it looked as if it was all over with Geoff and Christine Worrall holding a big lead. Nothing daunted, Russ and Dawn Malin fought back and, with a six on the last end, tied the score at twenty-one shots all. So, an extra end was needed. Even then, the winners were not obvious and it needed the umpire Joe Scott to decide a close measure for shot.
