In a strongly contested HB Gerald Scott Gala, it is pleasing to report that a team from our club emerged as clear winners.
Playing four games of eight ends, our team emerged with the only clean sweep - four wins and no losses and a shot difference of +35.
The first game was against three of our members playing under their old banner of Rowley Lane - Malcolm Alcock, Pat Stamp and Stuart Stamp - with HB SVP John Loudon skipping. John had an uncharacteristically poor game and couldn't save shots at vital times. It got our team off to a very healthy +13, after which, despite some difficult opponents and rinks, they went on without losing concentration.
Our team was lead Mick Dix, two guest player Yvonne Larkins, three Ann Dix and skip Peter McNulty who pocketed £120 between them for their troubles and who will receive their cup at the County Dinner in November
