Trophy Competition - update

Mr Nicoll Snr.still holds an unbeaten record and stays at the top of the table. Meanwhile, the holder, Mr Nicoll Jnr. has returned to winning ways and along with Mr Good are snapping at his heals.  This leaves Mr Wood as the only other skip with a 100% record, so far, but he will be hoping to change that soon.

Trophy Competition - opening salvo

With the new double round robin format for our Trophy Competition Morgan has made a strong start, winning his opening two games.  It has also come to my attention that 9 seems to be Morgan's lucky number with him having scored 9 shots in each of his four games this season.  Other skips, be warned.
Meanwhile, Mike Wood is again mired in controversy, with a shortage of players in his game against John Good's rink.  With the game being void, players were swapped and a four ended, one sided game played resulting in a 12 - 0 win for team Good.  Under RCCC/Club rules the result for a forfeited game is 6 Shots and 4 Ends.

The Knockout

We have a Winner - or do we ?
The first rounds saw the Final being contested by Morgan Nicoll's squad and Team Wood.
The After an early start by Mike, Morgan edged ahead while the teams swapped 3's, although Morgan always held the upper hand, drawing into the lead then being pegged back.  True to form, Mike scored a 3 in the final and and peeled the game. 
There ensued a discussion as to the club rules (which although they exist for the leagues are strangely silent regarding the Knockout).  In order to make a decision, they decided to play a Draw Shot, and argue about the winner later.
The eventual result was that Mike's team would be the winners, IF the game was decided on ends BUT....
Morgan would be the winner if the Draw Shot was the decider.
As this game has no bearing on the other competition, an anonymous ballot will be held amongst the 'non-involved' committee members and the result made known at the prize giving!
(I really hope that there are an odd number of committee members for the vote!)

Start of the Season

The good/bad news is that after missing the start of the season, the President is back, from playing on his motorbike.  This also means that I am trying to get the results up to date, so please bear with me.

President v Vice President

Congratulations to the President, Sheena Munro and her rinks for regaining the quaich by a combined
with both her teams winning.
The night unfolded with two tight games.  In the first Sheena took on the vice president, Graeme.  Sheena along with Dale, Dave Wyllie and John Good took a three point lead into the final end but Graeme had a shot with his final stone for a possible, but tricky three (well he said a four just to worry Dale). In the end though it was very close but he only secures a one to lose the game by two shots.
In the other game, the president's team led by Sandy with Mike, Cathy and Stanley Simpson were all tied, against Morgan's side, going in to the last end.  With Sandy's last stone to play The Vice President's side was sitting with three shots, enough to secure the overall win should Sandy be wayward.  Our outstanding player of the season was not to be denied and played a beautiful draw for a one shot win giving the President a three shot advantage over the two games.
It was an enjoyable evening and both games and the overall contest came down to the final stones.

The game was followed by the AGM and a very enjoyable meal before everyone said their good-byes, until the dinner at the Longniddry Inn on 21st April at 7pm.
