|VOYAGER DIVISION (C) WK 15 2016 - 2017|DISCOVERY DIVISION (B) WK 15 2016 - 2017||ENTERPRISE DIVISION (A) WK 15 2016 - 2017


The week started with The Broncos entertaining La Siesta Pioneers and played very well to take 5 rinks and the overall shots, a good result on a difficult day. As we know the losing rink can be just down to the luck of the rink and opponents draw. Meanwhile The Pintos were at Emerald Isle playing the Titans and although play was a mixed bag, though sufficient had a good day to enable us to come away with 2 rinks, never a bad away result.

On Friday the Raiders had a bye. Whilst the Mustangs were at Country Bowls playing the Gheckos, the mat was playing unexpectedly narrow and fast whilst heavy with due, but slowed down rapidly and widened as it quickly dried.

With several close run rinks the Mustangs came away with one rink and a draw, of course results can often be a result of rink and opponent draw as well as play. Judy Foley, Keith Cunningham and Geoff Jones 16-18. Barbara Jones, Sheila Cooper and Carolyn Harris 15-17. Ann Taylor, Malc Sykes and Jim Gracie 21-16. Irene Thomson, Jim Taylor and Eddie Thomson 12-21. June Whitworth, Jane Hamill and Stew Hamill 17-17. Bob Morgan, Merv Armstrong and David Whitworth 14-19.
