The triples team of Mike Harding, Pierre Anton, and Ron Rowley put up a terrific fight to draw level after 18 ends and then win their match by 2 shots on the extra end, unfortunately, the team lost 3-2 overall. In the Men’s Over 60’s, Mike Macalpine, Ron Rowley, and Terry Hurley-Smith had a great win over the highly-rated Exonia.
