Snow and injury meant a last minute change to the team line ups but eventually we had 2 teams of 4 playing against each other and 2 teams of 3 playing against each other.
E Banks and R Macnair played against each other. E Banks won a single shot in the first 4 ends to go 4-0 up. Then in the 5th end R Macnair’s team came back with a 3 to make it 4-3 going into the last end. This was a close end with many stones in the house but at the end a yellow stone was closest to the button which meant that the game was peeled at 4-4.
On the other sheet R Hotchkiss’s team were playing J Wesley’s team. J Wesley took an early lead to go 2 – 0 up after 2 ends. R Hotchkiss then got a 3 to go 3-2 up however J Wesley immediately came back with a 3 to go 5-3 up going into the last end. This was very close and a measure was need to determine that R Hotchkiss had only scored 1. The result 5-4 to J Wesley meant that the Doune Castle Trophy was won by J Wesley being 1 shot up.
A very enjoyable evening was had by all.
