Match Report 1: week 24 Apr-30 Apr
Two friendly matches this week to start the season.
Five mixed triples turned out in arctic conditions for an away game against Ewhurst.
After a keenly fought contest Ewhurst won by 3 rinks to 2.
All rinks were close with John, Sue and Charlie only losing out by one shot on the last end. A great recovery from Alec, Pat and Sonia saw them score 7 unanswered shots in the last 5 ends to win 18-15. A two shot win was also recorded by Carol, Martin and John.
The afternoon was so cold that Ewhurst loaned our travelling fan Paula their golden retriever to keep het feet warm. Now that’s what I call a friendly gesture.
The game was played in a great friendly spirit as the photo of the 2 teams in post match refreshments shows.
On Thursday evening DBC stepped out on our green as the away team for once, for a friendly triples match with the Police. As usual, it was a friendly affair played in good spirit. With the light fading fast and the temperature dropping to what seemed like arctic conditions, all rinks managed to finish the 18 ends and the rush for the warmth of the clubhouse. In each game, the team that took the early lead was destined to continue their winning way, with the long arm of the law taking two of the rinks comfortably and DBC just one. Well done to the Police !
