Novice Singles Playdowns

It's Wilma Jilesen and Mary Kennedy going head to head to represent our club in the District Novice Singles in Stratford. Andy Davis will represent us on the men's side. Wilma came from behind to win the first game 21-19 in 26 ends. It's a best two out of three. Mary took the second game 21-11 and Wilma came back to win the third game 21-10. I have a few more photos from games two and three.

Gail Christie is the spotter.

Thanks to our volunteer officials Gail, Wayne and Andy.

That's it, Wilma takes it.

Congratulations you two and good luck in Stratford, Wilma.

Annual Maxwell C Rice Memorial Tournament

We had to dodge a few raindrops but it turned out to be a beautiful afternoon. We were the perfect hosts finishing out of the top four places with teams from Seaforth, Sarnia and Kitchener taking the top spots. Our team of Charles and Ros Macdonald along with Gail Christie took home the consolation prize. We had a great lunch, thanks again to Doug, Ann and Mark for preparing and serving lunch (and breakfast). Here are just a few photos.

Tools of the trade.
