All members now looked forward to on paper to a very good game for the Final. And indeed it was, a very exciting occasion with lots of support looking on. Les Pratchetts team were level with Colin’s team at 9-9 on the ninth end, again on the sixteenth end at 16-16. On the seventeenth end Les’s team were piling them into the head and were at least holding four shots. Colin then who wasn’t a happy bunny until this point, fired at the head, missed with his first attempt, but the second hit the target and put the jack out of play. Two shot were earned on the extra end by Colin’s team and although Les’s team won one shot on the last end the championship went to Colin and his team.
Congratulations must go to all players giving us a quality final.
