The outcome of the long campaign to gain the Kettle was resolved last night (8 Mar). Team Hope met Team Hunter with the latter only requiring one point to take the Kettle. Team Hope faired better in the early jousting, taking a two in the first end and leaving their opponents struggling somewhat in the second end; only a last stone hit and wick to the four foot saved the day for Team Hunter who took a two. Team Hunter then stole a two, before Team Hope responded with two singles in the next two ends to tie the game at 4 – 4 after five ends. Team Hunter took two singles in the last two ends to run out winner by six shots to 4.
Congratulations to Liz Anderson, Robert Beaton, and Elaine Lambie.
