Honiton ran their annual Howard Cottrell trophy competition, inviting seven clubs to play against seven home rinks, writes Julie Grant.
It proved to be a really enjoyable afternoon thanks in part to the organisational skills of Gerry Dommett.
The club that came out winners for the second year running were from Ottery St Mary, this time represented by Brian and Pam Baker, Carol Keating and Richard Bland.
In second place were a team from Honiton who, during the game served up a hot shot.
They were Iris Long, Barrie Singleton, Jimmy Smith and Brenda Harris.
