Another lovely dry and mild day, overcast but with some strong gusting winds.

Meanwhile Barry Young ( 2nd yesterday) had drawn OK also on Queensberry peg 26, Eddie Bibby ( 1st yesterday) drew Queensberry p21, with Symon Willan ( 1st yesterday.) on Queensberry p24.

Chris Gorrel scored his second section win with 50lbs 12oz of silvers from peg 46, section 2 on Wallace Lake, with Matt Threfal also winning his section for the second time from peg 32, section 1 on Wallace Lake.
