Click here for the 2011 Men's Meeting Dates

Presentations ~ Following the Northants Eversley game President Chris presented a "Life Membership" flash to Ronnie Croxford and a "Past President" flashes to Paul Bennett and John Hines. President Chris was then presented with a "Life Membership" flash by Chairman Robert Allen. See photographs in picture gallery.

Eversley v Northants ~ this was an even closer result with shots on each of the 4 rinks 25th end influencing the result in North Cambs favour. With Bob Allen's rink to play we needed 1 shot to draw or 2 shots to win. With his first wood he made the two shots and covered the back with the second, Neil Wright Northants was unable to change the head and it was our second win of the campaign 86 - 85 shots, 12 - 2 points. Again very well done President Chris, Steve and the TEAM. 

                             

Eversley winning team with Ronnie Croxford County Shirt Sponsor.

Eversley v Lincolnshire ~ what a result 110 - 61 shots, 14 - 0 points. Well done President Chris and Steve for selecting team.

        

Sponsored County Shirts ~ North Cambs Men have received a batch of 60 new coloured county shirts, kindly sponsored by Ronnie Croxford which will be worn for the first time on Sunday 20th November 2001 for the Eversley game v Lincolnshire.

North Cambs Ladies President Anne Halsey partnered by Janet Anderson also reached the final on of the Women’s Pairs but could not maintain their previous form and lost to Humberside. The Championship started badly loosing 6 straight games in the rain on the first morning, we then had 4 wins in the dry in the afternoon. Throughout the week the weather played a significant part alternating between sun, rain and eventually hail and a thunder storm on Saturday but we kept winning more games than we lost, ending with 6 loosing and 1 winning semi-final and a winning final on the Friday. Presidents Paul Bennett and Anne Halsey are very proud of the performance achieved by North Cambs players during the week resulting 8 semi-finalists, 2 finalists and a Championship Team.  Well done to all.
