The weather was kind and Royston tied three rinks each.

Skip Eileen Hyde, ably supported by Andy Keating, Terry Lovegrove and Mick Smith had a convincing win, 21-12 shots.

However this was not enough to stop Skip Stan Whitehouse with Gwyn Hardwick, Peter Nightingale and Evelyn Huffer taking top rink 25 shots to 14.

A similar fate befell Eileen on Sunday during the home game against Biggleswade.

In spite of a hard fought battle resulting in a 19-16 win, her plus 3 score could not hold off Don Sheriff, Renee Bowyer and Alan Warner who scored 21-14 shots, including a 6 on the third end and 4 on the thirteenth end, giving a top rink score of plus 7 shots.
