Results

The Mixed Pairs – Ladies Choice Competition should have been played between 19th and 22nd January but due to heavy rain over those days the semi-final and final had to be rearranged to the 16th and 18th February respectively. The spectators were not disappointed as they were treated to a thrilling final between Trevor and Gill Young against Ian and Janet Jackson. Trevor and Gill started the better and were 4-0 after the first 2 ends but then Ian and Janet picked up a 4 followed by a 1 to level the score 5-5 after 5 ends. Trevor and Gill pulled away again but Ian and Janet kept them in their sight and after the 17th end had levelled the score 15-15. It was all down to the 18th and last end and after some lovely bowling the umpire had to decide the winning shot as it was a very close measure. The winning shot was awarded to Trevor and Gill who won the final 16-15. A truly exciting final which was appreciated by everyone who watched it. Congratulations to Trevor and Gill and commiserations to Ian and Janet.
