Another round of
the pennant season has
been and gone.
The week commenced
with the ladies playing on Thursday morning. All
games played on Thursday were shortened due
to the heat.
Tanunda White played Lyndoch Gold and fol-
lowing good games, narrowly went down on both
rinks, Jean Stephen’s rink by four and Margaret
Hurst’s rink by five.
Tanunda Black played Kapunda Black and
again good games were played with Tanunda
Black coming out on top with Kathy Wallace’s
rink up by eight and Margaret Meertens’ rink
up by one.
Rink of the week went to Dora Murray, Glenis
Kupke, Judy Thompson and Kathy Wallace.
With the day getting hotter, Tanunda Black
were happy to have the bye in midweek, but
Tanunda White had to brave the conditions and
play 13 ends each against Freeling.
Peter Baverstock and Jeff Garrett’s rinks had
close games and after eight ends each were down
overall but they came back to record wins, Peter
Baverstock’s rink up by 11 and Jeff Garret’s up by
seven shots. Tony Edward’s rink had to battle all
day and were behind finishing seven shots down.
Overall they had an 11 shot win.
Rink of the week went to Hedley Rohrlach,
Peter Secker and Peter Baverstock.
Saturday was the opposite of Thursday with
rain threatening to delay or cancel matches. A
couple of light showers appeared early in the
morning but held off until later in the day.
First Division and Third Division played at
home and only just scraped in with the required
amount of ends to constitute a completed game.
First Division played Kapunda and Peter
Baverstock’s team had a slow start not scoring
until the seventh end but then made a charge to
be six shots up at the end of play.
The other three rinks had good starts and were
up at the end of play. Bradley Pech’s team by 10,
Tim Liersch’s team by 21 and Tony Edwards’ team
by 14. All rinks up and a good win.

team had an early lead but the opposition made
a comeback. Brian’s team won by two shots.

then on the seventh end picked up five shots

Malcolm Paech’s team had a slow start but on
the 12th end picked up a seven to put them in
front and they kept the lead to win by seven. All
Division 2 travelled up the hill to Angaston
