Monday 23 September
The annual clash between Region 15 (North Shore & Manly-Warringah Districts) and Region 16 (Mitchell &Macquarie Districts) took place at Northmead on Monday 23 September, with Region 15 keen to wrest back the trophy from last year’s winners. At lunchtime, our side looked on track, having won 5 of the 8 morning games and leading on aggregate shots, 112 – 92. However, over the years we have witnessed many afternoon turnarounds! This time, our players really dug in and suffered only one rink-loss in the afternoon, to finish with a decisive win overall, 244 – 176. This event is always enjoyed by those lucky enough to be selected, as it always involves hard-fought games against “old friends” from the other side of Sydney.
