Johnjo, Bill, David and Neil reached the quarter-finals of the Edinburgh Seniors at Murrayfied last the weekend.
In their section games they peeled four all with Alan Durno; lost 10-3 to Norman Brown before beating John Dignan 7-6 and Jim Hogg 11-3.
In the knock-out stages they came unstuck at the first hurdle going down 3-1 to Ken Horton.
Afterwards Johnjo said: “It was a nice workout for us and some good fun. We are still “tinkering” with positions and game strategies but finally we are getting closer to where we want to be. As to the competition itself it was disappointing to lose to Ken (Horton) especially with the horrendous pick-up which would have brought a swing of four shots in our favour but that’s curling. We have another couple of warm up’s scheduled in December and hope to be in serious game mode by January!.”
