Bute Curling Club lost 7-5 to Greenock Ladies on November 25.

Ron Forrester skipped Alec Robertson, Nancy Kinnear and Peter Martin to a close victory in Bute Curling Club’s Sunday League competition.

Two games were played between the two participating rinks, with Ron, Alec, Nancy and Peter emerging as winners by a slender margin over Beck Reid (skip), Donald Kinnear, Bill Stein and Jim Findlay.

Ron’s rink won the first game 10-3, and though Beck and her team recorded a 9-3 win in the second game, it wasn’t quite enough to prevent Ron’s rink getting their hands on the prize.
