Happy Hour is be­ing run on Fri­day night be­tween 5pm and 7pm. Come along for a chat and some­thing to eat. The food is good and the prices are cheap.

Divi­sion 1 started the new mid­week pen­nant sea­son with a 10-shot win over Mooroopna. The day started badly for Mooroopna as one of their play­ers had a fall and could not travel to Kyabram. We hope she has re­cov­ered. Bev But­ton’s rink had a real strug­gle on their hands when they faced Stacey Col­lier. Stacey’s rink started well and were lead­ing six shots to zero af­ter five ends. At lunch Bev’s team were still down 12 shots to four. Af­ter lunch they were able to win eight of the last 12 ends to go down 13 shots to 19. A good fight­back. The scores on Ma­ree Boswells’s rink were tight un­til the 12th end when Ma­ree’s team scored six shots. This gave them a lead of 13 shots to eight. This end was re­ally the dif­fer­ence as both teams shared the scor­ing for the rest of the game. The fi­nal score be­ing Kyabram 26 shots to Mooroopna 21 shots. Jenni Dixon’s rink started well and kept up the pres­sure for the whole game. At lunch they were lead­ing 20 shots to five and ran out win­ners 29 shots to 18.

Divi­sion two had an 11-shot win over Avenel. Terry Thomp­son’s rink had a won­der­ful 37 shot to 11 win. The game was close for the first five ends, with Kyabram lead­ing five shots to three. Af­ter that Avenel were only able to win five more ends for the rest of the game. Jill Bar­rett’s rink went down with an 11 shot to 33 shot loss. Jill’s team found it dif­fi­cult to score all day and were only able to win six ends for the match. Judy Wright’s rink won 20 shots to 13. This game was even un­til lunch, with the scores on the 13th end be­ing Kyabram 11 shots to Avenel eight. Judy’s team then won eight out of the next 12 ends to win by seven shots.

Divi­sion three trav­elled to Euroa. De­spite win­ning two rinks they were un­able to cover the loss on the other rink and went down by 22 shots over­all. Dossie Grills com­mented on their re­turn that one op­po­si­tion player was just too good and was able to con­sis­tently take shots away when they were hold­ing in the head. Dossie’s rink went down 10 shots to 44. They were only able to win six ends for the day, whereas Euroa were well in con­trol of the game. Jan MacFadyen’s rink had a close game. Kyabram were lead­ing 14 shots to 10 on the 13th end. Then the game tight­ened up and the scores were level on the 15th end and on the 20th end. But Kyabram were able to run out win­ners by three shots, 25 shots to 22. Our new mem­ber Jeanette Breen had a great re­turn to our club. She was able to lead her team to a 30 shot to 21 win in her first game. Jeanette’s team started slowly and were down seven shots to 14 on the 13th end. They ob­vi­ously needed their lunch be­cause they came out fight­ing and were able to level the scores 15 shots all on the 17th end. Win­ning six shots on the 16th end helped to im­prove the score line. From then they only al­lowed Euroa to win two more ends, while they were able to keep on scor­ing.

Divi­sion five had a day they will not want to re­mem­ber. Kyabram hosted Mooroopna Golf and lost both rinks with the over­all score be­ing Kyabram 24 shots to Mooroopna Golf 71. Fran King’s rink started well and were lead­ing seven shots to zero af­ter the first two ends. But by the eighth end they were down seven shots to 10. Af­ter that Mooroopna Golf were able to move ahead, with the fi­nal score be­ing Kyabram 16 shots to Mooroopna Golf 28. Win Crilly’s rink were outscored all day and were only able to win seven ends for the match. They went down eight shots to 43.
