18 August 2019 President’s Day

Twenty entries this year so we played pairs with rinks and position drawn from the hat.

On each game of 5 ends one end was marked as a bonus double score which made the competition more interesting. Winner was Malcolm Beeney with a massive 39 points, with newcomer Peter Webster coming second and Pat Moore third. There was the usual prize for the lowest score but I have forgotten who that was. Photos on later pages including two taken in the Clubhouse.
