Captain Angela Denner hosted a friendly match against the Devon county ladies.

Norma Cureton, Jenny Smith, Deidre Norman and Annette Flockhart came a close second with an 18-12 loss although the county ladies did borrow our own May Dyson who had a very good game!

Angela Denner, Dee Williams, Ann Doidge and Thelma Wildon were hosts to the County president Jean Wards’ rink which romped home to a 45-5 win.

Jan Roberts, Christine Macaulay, Jean Healey and Shirley Smith upheld Madeira’s

honour with a 23-12 win over their county opponents. Everyone enjoyed the full tea after the game.
