San Luis 4-2-2 Open Competition:
This 3 day competition was a great challenge to the 24 participating teams because of the format, 6 ends each: rinks, 2 woods ladies pairs & 2 woods men’s pairs match. Some of the group winners were not known until the last shot was played, points & shot difference were so close!
The last morning matches were played in cold, wet, miserable conditions but fortunately it improved for the afternoon semi finals, between group winners (A) Kevin McKenna, Pam Lockett, Sheila Cammack, Les Bedford, who beat group (B) winners: June Jones, Sabrina & Russell Marks, Keith Jones. Group (C) winners: Jan & Brian Pocock & Sally & Roy Cordell beat group (D) winners: Colin Jackson, Kath Reid, Ann Holland, Giuseppe Galelli.
The final, between Pam’s San Luis team & Jan’s San Luis/Greenlands team ended in a clear win for Kevin, Pam, Sheila & Les.
Thanks to all the players & hardy supporters, sponsors Avalon, Keith for organizing the event & Jan for organizing the raffle & tombola & anyone else I’ve missed!
