The club had a team competing in the Oshawa Combo Fours on Thursday. Bill Arthur, Louisa Arthur and Mary Salter were joined by John MacKenzie from the Oshawa club (John is almost an honorary Cobourg member!)
It's a fun format that starts with mixed pairs; that's followed by 3 of the team playing triples and one singles; round 3 is ladies and men's pairs and finally it is fours.
12 Teams competed and the top 5 were prizewinners. Unfortunately the Cobourg team was 2 points short of the prizes and finished 6th. Highlights were the ladies pairs with a win for Mary and Louisa and the men's pairs where John and Bill were 11 down with 3 ends to play but scored 3, 5 and 3 to tie the game.
Thanks to the Oshawa club for a great day but they could have turned down the temperature a bit!
Gordon Insurance Men's Pairs
Jim Gordon was a longtime member of the club and past President. This was the first time the tournament had been held since Jim passed away and the club is grateful to Gordon Insurance for continuing to sponsor the tournament.
Ten teams competed and the winners were the home town boy (boy?) Martin Foxhall playing with Steve Nelson of the Heritage club. Three wins and a points total of 44+4 was just enough to beat Mike Mogan and Frank Hibbs of Cosburn Park who also had 3 wins but points of 43+3. Rick Tompkins (Campbellford) and Bob Guppy (Peterborough) were third with 2 wins and 41 points. The last game high prize was won by David Saliba and Rob Cipparone (Pickering) with a score of 15.
