Over­toun mem­bers en­joyed an­other one-day tour­na­ment on Satur­day when 14 mixed pairs played a round robin for the Nom­i­nated Mixed Pairs Tro­phy. Or­gan­iser Anna McLean had a dif­fi­cult task when ill­ness caused one or two with­drawals and she was glad when Benny Brown vol­un­teered to play as a lady. He was even hap­pier when he and Dougie Nod­ding won the event. No one is quite sure if they can be called the mixed pairs cham­pi­ons but, in a club that prides it­self on equal rights, maybe it is not such an out­landish ti­tle. The gal­lant run­ners-up, beaten by one shot in an ex­tra end, were Ann MacAlpine and John Meikle.

Se­nior mem­bers are still en­joy­ing their Tues­day night and Wed­nes­day morn­ing leagues while others are tak­ing ad­van­tage of any dry days to play ties as they progress to­wards the fi­nal stages of the com­pe­ti­tions.
