It was mixed matches all the way this week with three visitors and two away games, writes Matt Marriott.

This was followed by four rinks travelling to Chudleigh and resulted in an honourable draw of 107-107. Sandy Cox led her team of Stuart Grainger, Jill Honnor and Vic Doidge to a plus 13 win of 29-16 shots.

Madeira showed no mercy to visitors Wotton-under-Edge on their annual trip taking the day by 43 shots, 226-183 overall.

The smarty pants of the day were Catherine King with John Hopkins,Sue Lampley and Mike Marks taking top spot by 26 shots at 37-11. The visitors look forward to revenge next year.
