Then it was the Yetton Plate, played at Plymouth, but against a Cornish team from Veryan. Honiton came out on top, 114-56, all four rinks winning, but with an outstanding top rink of Lynda Dommett, Dulcie Broughton, Joan Heard and Sue Evans with a magnificent 41-7 victory. Honiton are now into the last 16 in the country having to play Thornbury on January 24.

The men had less success losing their Interclub to Plymouth B 90-78, but with a winning rink of Ian Veitch, Steve Coles, Roger Binmore and Steve Dommett, 24-13. Then they lost their Over 60 match against ISCA 87-65, even though the two home rinks won, the best winning rink being Ian Veitch, Peter Goodwin, Roger Binmore and Mike Dart. Finally, the club’s mixed match against Exonia was a winning one at 51-46.
