Lovely to see both Greens full and everyone enjoying a game in the cool of the evening. Winners were the Raspberries (L. Andrews, O. McDonogh, E. Johnson), runner-up went to the Nectarines (M. Wilkinson, A. Mason, D. Mason). Lucky losers were Blueberries (S. Taylor and A. Perkins). Resting touchers tonight went to A. Williams and R. Want. Lucky ends drawn were 5, 10 and 13 and this sees the Plums (K and J. Morrissey and R. Want) still out in front. With 3 weeks to go in this competition any team can still win, it depends on the lucky ends drawn on the night. Tuesday March 1 Semi final of the Championship Fours and the winners were J.
