I'm told this was a well contested game, but Banwell came second at the end.
Harry Woodards and his rink took the winning rink money, and also picked up a 7 on the 16th end.
If you are wondering why there are strange names on all four rinks, it is because we could only
raise 12 men to play in this match. Knowle were good enough to lend us 4 from their club
Result: Banwell 58 shots - Knowle 85 shots
