Division 3 travelled to Wangaratta and with only one rink down came home winners on the day.

Rinks skipped by G. McIntosh and B. Docherty were able to finish with good wins however G. Rowe’s rink found the opposition too strong on the day.

Well played by all.

Division 4 met YMGCR at home.

H. Van Summeren, E. Hollingsworth and J. Burgess playing as skips with good support from the team were all able to lead their rinks to a good victory on the day.
