The disappointment for the Club members was the fact that their match against one another did not take place because of national, international

and World commitments of the Banks family.

The points from this match would not have changed the title, as McDougall was 3 points ahead, with wins scoring only 2 points.

Ron McDougall with brother James or Alan Rough, went through the card undefeated with some high scores in favour.

The closest was against Brian Reid, with the match going to the last end, when McDougal drew to the jack, and won 13-12.

With 11 wins, and a shot difference of plus 106, it showed what high score difference there were in many matches.

The McDougall brothers have shown some great wins over the years, but this year they have shown consistency and good drawing.

Jason, with a combination of family members, won nine of 11 matches, drew one and lost one.

The draw was against seniors champion Geoff Simpson 12-12, and the loss, surprisingly against the Jim Duncan pair 10-12.

Geoff Simpson finished 11th of 13 winning only three matches.

Third in the Pairs league was Fergus Muat with 17 points and plus 28 shots.

The Banks family with Carla sponsoring the triples team took the Open Triples Evening title winning all seven matches, scoring plus 89 shots.

Most of the matches were decisive.

Again because of commitments, the match, this time, against Norman Hepburn was not played.

It did not matter as the 14 points scored, was 3 ahead of Fergus Muat in second place.

Two points were what was available for this match.

Muat had a good season playing all eight, winning five, drawing one, and two losses.

His draw was against Robbie Cruickshank 11-11, a narrow defeat to Gordon Harper 10-11, but against Carla Banks his trio never got going, and lost heavily 2-15.
