Niall and his troops continued on their winning ways with a big win over club president Dave Munro.  For the rest of the competitors in the competition, Niall is accumulating ends at a frightening rate and will soon be in a position where he can almost afford to lose a game - and still be ahead of the chasing pack.  He has a strong rink ahead of him and even without his regular third, Shona Watt, Andrew Cargill was a more than adequate replacement in the vice-skip position.  Francis is as comfortable at second as he is at lead and Maggie Barry, the reigning world senior championship silver medallist, slotted in at lead to the manor born!

Meanwhile, John Steven played his way to a comprehensive win over Mike Wood.  After his initial stutter against Niall Gunn in the opening round, John is moving cannily up to the sharp end of the league table and will be there challenging at the end of the competition, I am sure.

Niall and Dave managed to get their eight ends played in what looks to have been a competitive game - there will have been plenty of draws played, I am sure.  A good effort that speaks to all the players being ready to play their shots when asked, decisive decision-making in the heads, a fast turnaround between ends and starting the game on time.  Good stuff.

This Friday, round three will be completed.  Robin Copland plays Susan Kesley in what should be a cracking game and Jenny Barr faces off against Brian Fleming.
