A different story for La Siesta on Wednesday in the Winter League, away at Vistabella, where a brilliant performance saw La Siesta triumph by 79 shots to 70 in a close encounter winning on 4 of the 5 rinks thereby gaining ten points to their opponents two. A great team performance so difficult to mention individuals. What a game on one rink though where in 18 ends 23 shots were shared with Sheila Chorley, Fred Charman, Brian Gardiner and Alex Morrice winning 12-11 against a rink skipped for Vistabella by La Siesta old boy Gary Thorpe.

A chilly start to the day weather wise which was matched by a slow start for the Toreadors, who were down on all six rinks early on. We did improve to win on two rinks and losing narrowly on two other rinks. A good over all win for the Comets winning, 10 – 4 points Toreadors. Shots Comets 100 – 77 Toreadors.

Well done to our winning rinks of Cliff Norris, Pauline Woodfine and Skip Barrie Woodfine. Wendy Sheridan, Howie Williams and Skip Danny King.

On Monday morning The Broncos, played host to Quesada Diamonds who are always a tough opponent and although the score was 5 rinks to 1 in favour of Quesada, I note that several rinks were close. Often whether you win or lose is purely dependent upon who you are drawn against, but much more important is the spirit of the match and enjoying yourself in good company.

In the afternoon The Pintos were entertained by The Romulans at San Luis and put on a fine display to take the rinks by 4-2 and the overall shots by a reasonable margin, a good result away from home. Placing them in third place in the league, though it is a long journey to season’s end.

Friday Morning found The Mustangs at San Miguel playing The Jaguars, always one of our tougher fixtures and great fun. It was a very close match with both teams taking 3 rinks and only 3 shots difference in favour of The Jaguars, a very good result for The Mustangs away from home.

June Whitworth, Jane Hamill and Stew Hamill 21-14. Barbara Jones, Merv Armstrong and David Whitworth 16-19. Jim Taylor, Irene Thomson and Eddie Thomson 17-15. Ann Taylor, Malc Sykes and Jim Gracie 11-22. Maxine Wright, John Skipper and Rod Wright 10-17. Henry Ryder, Jan Bright and Richard Lee 17-8.

In the afternoon The Raiders played The Roundheads at Emerald Isle for a difficult match against a strong team. Alas they came away with just the one rink, but there is no shame in that and I am sure the company was good.

Edward Elsam, Shirley Edwards and Bob Taylor 17-20. Diane Yates, Peter Blackburn and Keith Longshaw 8-25. Pam Harris, Tricia Elsam and Brian Harris 8-24. Bob Easthope, Graham Day and Gary Newson 23-12. Gill Bartlett, Gary Dunstone and Rob Clark 5-32. Marion Haynes, Ann C Taylor and Dave Haynes 8-29.
