THE Miraflores Drawn Triples competition took place this week in wonderful weather conditions. With a good entry there were some very closely contested matches, but in the end the teams of Carol Frost, Nancy Shaw & James Tyrer and Joyce Carr, Tom Cordner & Brenda Collier won through to the final.
Joyce and her team got their noses in front early on but Carol and her team kept plugging away so that after 12 ends the score was 13-12 to Carol. Carol, Nancy and James then had a run of winning ends to take an unassailable 24-13 lead after 17 ends at which point Joyce conceded defeat. Both teams received warm applause from the crowd for their efforts. Nancy was defending her title, but this was a first final for both Carol and James who will now take their places on the honours board.
