Stranraer Weekend Results

  • 4th March 2020

Three Troon Portland teams spent their extra leap year day competing in the club’s annual competition at Stranraer.

Frank McHugh skipped TPCC3 this time and after getting humped 13-5 in the first game, came back with a big win against Mauchline and a narrow one against one of the many ‘Between the Sheets’ rinks.

Bert McKay was in pole position Sunday morning having won both his first two matches on Saturday but unfortunately for him he then had to play the rink who hammered TPCC3 on Saturday – he was ungraciously grannied and as a result TPCC3 just managed to overtake him on ends and shots.

Jack was in the other section had won one and lost one heading into Sunday but lost heavily in his last match.

Overall, Troon managed 5 wins and 4 losses which is a good result considering the standard of some of the opposition. I don’t think any of us were upset at not qualifying for the semi finals in what was a great weekend. We even had supporters in Jamie and Lisa’s (very well behaved boys who kept us entertained and can eat almost as much as DAvid McIntyre!) as well as Kirsty and Jimmy Letton who came down Saturday afternoon and stayed over night to socialise.

A fun sociable weekend for all ages
