A visit from the County President mid week with a side made up from various clubs around the county, resulted in a win on all four rinks for the Honiton men with a final score 90-56. Top rink was Brian Long, Doug Hirons, the club president, Ken Clarke and Mike Critchley 32-8.

The ladies' run in the Yetton came to an end at the hands of Exonia by just four shots. Nevertheless it was an excellent effort against such a strong side.

Gareth Mettam and Sue Evans have won through in the National Mixed Pairs against Ruth Rogers and Dennis Ball by 18-14, and Trevor Pipe, Gordon Mahoney and George Selvey won in the Over-50 National Triples against Fred Baker's trio from Dawlish, 24-13.

Both these squads need to win two more matches to get to the National finals, we wish them luck.

Ann Brown, Shirley Hiscocks and Julie Grant beat Margaret Parr's trio from Isca in the National Triples by 20-11.

Ann and Julie also beat Lesley Critchley and Rachel Brothers of South Hams in the Nation Un-badged Pairs by 20-16.

Ann, Julie and Shirley also beat the Madeira trio of Rainton, Cain and Perrin in the County Triples by 23-8.

Ann Hillyear and Pearl Hackwood beat the Sidmouth Pair of Wall and Hewett in the County Pairs by just four shots.

Last but not least, Berry Maynard, Rita Barwick and Dulcie Broughton pulled off a win in the County Triples against the Budleigh trio skipped by Joan Shaw.

To cap off this excellent week the Under-60s ladies pulled off a spectacular win at Taunton Deane in the 2 Triples Lingford trophy.

Taking up the lead's position in some style young Hannah Morfey played well for her team, followed equally well by Lynda Dommett and Carole Fisher and they won 28-6. The other three of Lynda Gadd, Yvonne Rainer and Sue Evans played equally well but some spectacular shots from the opposing skip kept their score down to a 16 all draw.

This puts them through to the last 16 in the country and they will meet either Thornbury or North Wiltshire in the next round on or around January 16.
