Consistency Final

The Final of the Consistency Competition was played this week with worthy finalists Dave Herman up against Gary Murane. Gary led early on but Dave caught up after six ends to lead 31 to 29. Dave started to draw clear and led 82 to 48 after 13 ends but Gary came back strongly to win the next two ends but that was when Dave steadied and won the next two ends to take the high standard match 101 to 69. Congratulations Dave for playing so well throughout the competition and also to Gary who had some good wins leading up to the final.

One game was played this week with Rod Holman and Tony Gors (skip) playing Barbara McNamara and Peter Jones (skip).The on fire pair of Rod and Tony bolted out of the gates to lead 12 to two after eight ends and they continued their jack attack throughout the game to take the match 29 to 10.

Outstanding in his field is Peter Jones who just drew another shot!
