The Finals

Let's start with the Seniors first. Colin Hamilton, Mike Dick, Trevor Dodds and Colin Baxter were just too strong for Michael Sutherland, Jim Wood, Frank Forrest and Alan Collette.

In the International event, Hammy McMillan, David Smith, Ross Paterson and Sandy Gilmour matched up against Graham Shaw, David Hay, Robin Niven and Kerr Drummond.

I found it a great game to watch. Nothing between the teams. Graham's side counted two at the seventh to take a one shot lead into the eighth. Hammy tied it up, and it was into an extra end.

With a long guard and a short one, it was David Smith who managed to hide his second stone which David Hay could not clear away. Hammy froze to it with his first. Graham could do little. Hammy came in on the other hand with his last, finishing open, perhaps six inches too far, but there were three McMillan stones clustered around the button. Graham was perfectly played with his last, a double takeout, with his own shot on the tee for the win. Enthralling.

Here are some pics from the International final.

Hammy and his team were certainly in good form this weekend, prior to them heading off to the European Championships in Champery on Wednesday.
