The day started fair, entries were down on previous competitions and the preliminary rounds were played one after another using seven rinks.
Let battle commence.
|And then the rain
arrived, it was hard enough to interrupt play, and most took the
opportunity to take an early lunch.
|Lunch was prepared by the usual suspects, led by Captain Beaky and ably assisted by other members.|
|After lunch the weather changed again, with blue skies and enough sun to produce shadows|
|We had the odd interested spectators|
All premlins completed the four top teams split for the semis.
Fordham, Mitchell Lodge and two Bottisham teams.
|See no evil...|
|A frequently heard cry (with a Scottish accent) was "Well bowled George!"|
Successful finalists were Fordham and one of the Bottisham squads.
(There had to be at least one Bottisham squad because they played each other in the semi).
|Bottisham were extremely generous to the visitors, who took full advantage.|
|With the change in weather the spectators were now searching out the shadier areas.|
|Bottisham fought back|
|Despite some close calls, including one for a independent measurer (left), Fordham prevailed|
|Third place: Mitchell Lodge||Second place: Bottisham|
