VCL Games This week we played rearranged games which were cancelled due to the bad weather, the first being on Wednesday was the two La Siesta teams playing each other (so there was only going to be one winner ‘La Siesta’), which resulted in a win for the Parakeets who won 10-2 (Shots 105-69) rinks won by; Dave Blackie (Men’s Singles 21-10). Martin Harley & Karen Kirk (Pairs 22-16).

The VCL game which we played on Thursday, was a home game for the Parakeets with the visitors being the Emerald Isle who walked away winning on four rinks but were unable to collect all of the points as the Parakeets Men’s single game went to Dave Blackie who won 21-17 for two points.

There was a Hotshot by our Trips team; June & David Whitworth with Jean Cooper but it was not enough to secure a win losing (17-22). Result 2-10 (Shots 76-96).
