Meanwhile the Pintos were at Emerald Isle taking on the Moonrakers, in a splendid match with several close rinks and fortunately the rain held off until close of play. The Moonrakers proved to be great company as well as opponents. In the end the Pintos came away with 4 rinks to Moonrakers’ 2 and the overall shots by just the small margin of 2.

On tuesday the Broncos played their re-scheduled match at home against La Manga Crusaders and what a cracking match they had in taking all the points, of course we all know that the speed of the mat is a little different from the grass at La Manga, but it is a splendid result from good play.

On thursday the Mustangs played their re- arranged match at Emerald Isle against their Cavaliers, we had a good match with several rinks that were close and could have gone either way. But in the end the Mustangs, with the home advantage took 4 rinks to the Cavaliers’ 2 and the overall shots by a small margin.

Friday morning found the Mustangs playing the Lanzadores at Vistabella, who gave us a tough match and took full advantage of the home mat to take 4 rinks to the Mustangs’ 1 the other drawn; they also took the overall shots by a reasonable margin.

Meanwhile the broncos were at home against San Luis Pumas, some of whom struggled to adjust to the speed of the mat. The broncos had a great day and took all the points. For membership details contact Brian Taylor on 965 07 7093 or  at or Carolyn Harris on 966 77 4316 or at
