Niall Gunn, Shona Watt, Andrew Cargill and Francis Kennedy can put on the Kettle!
Niall and company kept up the good work with an outstanding final round win over Susan Kesley. They were aware that John Steven was on their heels and that a win was needed - and that is just what they delivered. They were 8-o up after only five ends and when Susan scored her 1 in end six, thus avoiding the dreaded "granny", hands were offered, brushes went up and team Gunn could celebrate their victory.
Their only loss was a really tight affair and the boilerhouse was missing - neither Shona, nor Andrew were available to play that night. Even when Niall and Shona were away on other duty, Andrew Cargill stepped up to the plate and skipped the team to victory.
Well deserved - many congratulations from the rest of the club.

John Steven takes the Harlaw Cup with a Dominant DisplayMeanwhile, on the next sheet, John Steven was keeping the pressure up, hoping for a slip-up from Niall. It wasn't to be, but his victory over Brian Fleming secured the Harlaw Cup for him, Katie Wood, Nook Weir and Agnes Barr.
John reports from the scene of the action, "we won the toss, but chose the blue stones rather than the yellow on sheet three. We lost a two in the first end before our team bounced back and came into its own - Agnes putting up the guards, Nook drawing the four foot and Katie hitting out any threats. I just managed to play the shots I needed to win the next four ends to take a 7-2 lead. Brian scored a point in the sixth end, then shook hands".
The final round takes place next week and minor places as well as bragging rights are still up for grabs.
