It's been another encouraging week for both the men and ladies in their respective leagues. The B team took a well deserved nine points from their encounter with Bridport whilst the A team took six from Dorchester, thanks to a good win on Denis Perry's rink. The ladies keep in the chase for league honours with a six point win at Westmoors, again thanks to a fine win from Kathy Clissold's rink.

The Edna Paisley team took all six points at Melcombe Regis, again this has been a success story for the club after a year out of the competition.

There have been mixed friendly results - the lowlight being a drubbing by the touring side from Bedlinog!
