Absentee Landlord Strikes Again!John Steven may feel unwanted at this rate! Having planned his retirement do for a Friday C & B night (how could he?), he left his team in the capable hands of the club's president and immediate past-president - assisted and abetted by subs John Penny and Josh Kellock. They were taking on a top-end bereft team (the club treasurer and the club president's husband were becoming gin-soaked by the minute at the Pointe Claire reunion bonspiel and high tea up in the club rooms - who organised that little event, then? Did they not know at the time of organising that there might be a C & B game on that night? Idiot.). Pauline Alexander was also off on some social event or other, so up to the plate stepped lead Donald Kennedy with subs Norman Nicol (I was in the Nicol car home that night, having been kindly offered a lift. Not a lot said. All I'm saying. My lips are sealed.), Agnes Barr and (welcome to the club, Eilidh!) Eilidh Yeats.
In the other match up, there was a clash of the titans between Kettle boiler Niall Gunn (and we'll just have a wee pause for effect there) and other regular high Kettle man, Brian Fleming, there was indeed a great game that went all the way to the last stone. Niall went for a high tariff potential game winner that didn't quite come off as planned, so instead of a two and possible three, he ended up scoring a one instead - not quite enough to equal or overhaul Brian's two-shot advantage playing the last.
Here's the game scores.
That was an important win for Brian as he gets off the mark. Also a great win for John. Played two, won two and looking ominous already.
Here is the resultant league table.

Niall has found himself on the wrong end of two tight, tight games but we can expect him to bounce back, I am sure. Barrs heading off down the mines soon for the day job. Pit props. All I'm saying on that one.
