Nine members assembled on Wednesday evening (24 Feb) to contest the medal for the Second Points. Fastest out of the blocks on the first two disciplines was Jim Ramsay followed by Tom Alexander, and Reg Dunbar. Jim easily kept his place as front runner over the next two disciplines followed by a chasing pack of Walter, Reg, Tom, John J, with David B and Ken closing behind. The next lap involved Chap & Lie; Ken and Tom made decisive moves and closed the gap behind Jim and Walter. Wick & Curl In was probably the decisive lap, with Ken scoring a five to gain a three point lead over Jim, Tom, and John. A late surge by Jim in the final discipline (Raising) just failed to get him to the tape ahead of Ken.
Scores after 7 disciplines ; Ken Hunter 31, Jim Ramsay 30, John Jacobs 27. Some good scoring across the board on ice that was tricky at times. The stand-out performance of the night for your reporter was that of David Ballantyne who finished on 24 points. Well done David.
