Tuesday, February 20 saw the final day of this season’s Silverfin 5’s.  On a day of changeable weather from a really hot, sunny day to rain showers and back to sun, 15 teams battled it out.

Winners on the day were Ian and Trish Hardy, Grant Keats, Evan Thomas, and a revolving team of replacements for Lionel Drew with Bevan Smith and Wendy Jensen stepping in to replace an injured Lionel. The team finished with five wins and 55 ends.


In second place also with five wins, but 51 ends were Jan Harrison, Walter, and Maureen Howden, Walter Seque and Kathy Stevens.                                                                                                                                   Third place went to another team with 5 wins but only 40 ends, Stuart Jamieson, Tony Trent, Irene Donaldson, Joy Watkinson, and Larry Cain.                                                                                                          In fourth place were Jan and John Gledhill, Sheryl Wellington, Phill Chisholm and Alan Telford with 4 1/2 wins 55 ends, narrowly pipping the McClintock team who also had 4 1/2 wins, but 52 ends.

Miles Brown of Silverfin and Alexandra Brown Investor Relations Manager were on hand to present the prizes.  We are very grateful to Silverfin for this sponsorship, and Miles assured us they  are very happy to continue sponsoring our tournament.
