Difficult Day

Playing “Under the Dome”, Division One struggled to stay in touch with the top four by going down to third played Mt Barker. Christine Keller had a great fight to get home by six shots whilst Malcolm narrowly lost by three shots.  Unfortunately Bob Edward’s rink meet a very hot team and went down by fifteen shots.  Next week they meet ninth placed Woodside at Woodside with a great chance to get back in the winners circle.
