Top Division travelled to Lobethal to start the season on a cold, wintery day. Again the slow greens caused difficulty early with all rinks struggling to make an impression on the scoreboard. After the break both Phil Nagel and Chris Buttons’ rinks made inroads into the opposition leads and got within striking distance with two ends to play. Unfortunately they were not able to maintain the momentum and went down by four and six shots respectively. Bob Edwards rink played well at times but finished seventeen shots down.
Next week top division meets Oakbank whilst second division open their account against Mt Barker No 2. Both teams are at home.
