First Points Competition

On very challenging ice eight Club members fought out the First Club Points over 9 disciplines with highs and lows for all contestants, with only 2 players recording positive scores on every end.
As the competition progressed it became clear that the final outcome would be very close, and so it turned out to be as with the last delivery of the evening Jim Cowper recorder a three to draw level with Jim Ramsay on 31 points. So for the first time in a long time the dreaded outwicking decider was played,  Jim Cowper played first and scored 2 with his first stone then a 1 with his second.  Jim Ramsay recorded a single with his first stone but could only manage a single with his second delivery, so many congratulations to octogenarian Jim who achieved his first First Points win.  (He is now checking back the records to find out if he is the oldest member to win the First Points).
John Jacobs and Iain Scott both reached 30 points and shared third place.
Well done Jim Cowper on a fantastic win.
