More trophies for the already overcrowded mantelpiece of Rod Davidson, as Phear Park internal competitions came to a close. 

First up was the Dick Mann triples, a round robin competition over a total of 18 ends. Rod skipped Nigel Oates and Joan Cowing to an overall shot difference of plus 14 to narrowly beat John Anderson, Mike Killoran and Sarah Westacott who finished with a score of plus 13. 

In the John Tucker Trophy, a mixed singles straight knockout competition, Rod competed against Mike Killoran in a thrilling final that needed an extra end to decide the winner. Rod again came out on top, taking the trophy by 10-9. 

Finally, the season came to an end with the traditional Captain's Day, in honour of this year's captain, Margo Allen. 

The day comprised three matches; two rinks (teams of 4) and 1 triple. The yardstick format was won by John Anderson, Rod Davidson, Joan Cowing and Bryan Stone with a score of plus 10. Runners up on a score of plus 7 were Nigel Oates, John Whyte, Simon Weclawek and Sarah Westacott.

The club wishes to thank this year's Captain Margo Allen after a strange and difficult year. Thanks also to the members of the committee who kept our ship afloat, and to all our members who came and competed in the various competitions and matches, making some sort of season possible. 

We hope to see you all again next season.
