Highlight of the week was a last end victory for Sidmouth in the Inter Club competition.

Highlight of the week was a last end victory for Sidmouth in the Inter Club competition. The team, Brian Smith, Tony Brown, John Mason and Norman Brimson (skip), were leading 19-12 going into the last end, playing away from Home at ISCA. Overall, at that stage of the match, ISCA were holding a three shot advantage. Norman's team came up trumps with a 24-12 win giving Sidmouth the overall score of 75-72. The win was significant as ISCA were above Sidmouth in the league table with a three point advantage. ISCA must now win on at least two rinks in their last game of the season to overhaul Sidmouth. If they fail, Sidmouth will win promotion to the First Division.Results for the other rink's were - at Home: Ray Tallent, Stuart Hamer, Ron Cook and Bill Boddy (skip ) 16-20; John Farmer, Peter Mison, David Lever and Peter Clements (skip) 22-19.Away: Ken Bridgman, Jim Wrench, John Wall and Trevor Wilkins (skip) 12-21. Again, it does demonstrate the need to keep going in this game and that every shot counts!On Sunday, Sidmouth played the semi final of the County Charles Parrott Shield against a very good team from Torquay United. Unfortunately, Torquay proved too strong, winning by 20 shots overall.Sidmouth had proved themselves in the previous rounds against top clubs in the County and all members should feel proud of their success in reaching the semi-final.Earlier in the week, Sidmouth played their final County Trophy competition against ISCA B losing 74-93. Best winning rink for Sidmouth was: Robert Cartlidge, Peter Mison, Trevor A-Pritchard and Bob Seldon (skip ) 21-19.Two friendly matches were played during the week, with Sidmouth winning at Axminster 58 50. Scores were: Mike Savage, Peter Mison, David Lever and John Mason (skip) 17-20; Tony Holland, Ron Denning, Bill Turner and Bob Daniels (skip) 20-20.And the winning rink: Ray Talent, David Ware, Maurice Watson and Ron Cook (skip) 26 -10.Our second friendly was played away at Madeira. Result cards have mysteriously disappeared, but I am sadly informed we lost on all three rinks.l The club's trip to Axminster prompts me to say a special thanks to all our drivers who pick up and safely deliver teams back to Sidmouth. Their efforts are very much appreciated by the club. There can also be memorable occasions of certain drivers reminiscing about when they worked in Axminster and travelled the surrounding countryside on business, enjoying the sight of ever- changing seasons, lambs leaping in the fields and barn owls sitting on branches licking their lips. Proper romantic is our David Lever!
