On the 26th of February the club’s pairs competition took place with 12 dynamic duos looking to become the dream double act.
After the group stages Alex Wilson and Craig Kirkwood would top section A and would play section B runners up Willie Smith and Gus Erskine in the first semifinal. In the other semifinal section B winners Stuart Smith and Janice Shepherd would play runners up from section A – David Reid and Greg Matthew.
After the dust settled in both semis, it was the teams from section B that prevailed. Stuart and Janice would now play Willie and Gus in the championship final, after meeting in the group stages in a game before, which John joked that if they peeled, they would both progress from the group first and second. Well people, lo and behold an hour later the game finished 2-2 with the teams exchanging single shots in each of the ends. In a tight game Willie and Gus edged it, with Stuart unfortunately missing an angled raise to take it to a draw the shot. Congratulations to Willie and Gus and commiserations to Stuart and Janice.
In the low road final, it was a repeat of last year’s final with Dougie Reid and Andy Currans taking on John Craig and Holly Smith. John would get revenge over Dougie for last year’s draw the shot defeat. Thanks to Davie Mundell for organizing the 24 athletes and Davie Reid for keeping everything ticking along on the day.
