The Devon Men’s Pairs were held on Saturday and in Group A the finalists were Jim Wherlock and Martin Eveleigh winning by two shots at 19-17, writes Matt Marriott.

In Group B, Terry Reardon and Bill Davis took a five-shot win over Ken Roberts and Mike Orchard at 18-13. Both were close encounters!

Some more results to report in the over 60’s at last! Madeira A took six points from Madeira B who took the other two points.

Madeira D were playing away at Seaton B and took all eight points whilst yet again the E team took all eight from Culm Vale B and continue to steam along nicely!

Hopefully we may eventually get the league tables so we can see who lies where in the respective sections!

The week also saw the first round of the Axon Cup, and as with other competitions, I will announce progress after the players have been whittled down.

There were two away matches this week, the first being to Torbay on Sunday with Madeira only managing to win on two rinks, resulting in a 48 shot win for Torbay at 146-98. Of Madeira’s winning rinks, the highest was the team led by John Bellamy with Howard Rees, Vic Doidge and Debbie Fox landing a 23-15 win. The deficit will no doubt be corrected when they visit us later in the year!

The wheels seem to come off again as four rinks went to Belmont, but went down by 14 shots at 687-63. Madeira seemed to wake up after tea, but not enough to turn the game around. However, there was one winning rink for Madeira skipped by Alan Porter with Jenny Turner, Dennis Fears and Mike Ball winning by six shots at 22-14.

The home game against visitors Linslade from Bedfordshire saw Madeira in a fighting mood taking the game with an overall score of 148-106 shots. Must have been angry after the past defeats! There were two high scoring rinks, one at 30-15 but bettered by Deidre Norman who skipped her team of Martin Eveleigh, Gill Morrish and Bernie Andrews to a 37-10 win.

I must however finish on a sad note and report the death of Sheila Cond.

She was a well known and very staunch member of the club for many years. She was one who always called a spade a spade. Her experience and knowledge of procedures has led many of us in the right direction in whatever offices we filled and I, as with many others, will miss her.
