The popular McMillan Bonspiel, sponsored by P&O Ferries, was won by John Cannon and his rink after an exciting final against Murray McWilliam’s team.

John, playing with Christine Cannon, John Clark and Jak Kane won the 10-end final by scoring ones in seven of the ten ends. In the two ends they did lose, they gave up two threes to Murray and his rink of Andrew Chalmers, Stuart Wilson and Alex Fergusson.

At the close of play Jim McLean from P&O Ferries presented the cup and tickets for trips to Ireland to the winners and travel vouchers to the runners-up.

The winners of the low road were Ian Kirkpatrick, Danny Hair, Andrew Hannah and Willie Hurcomb who beat Scott McColm, Robert Lammie, Elaine Dalrymple and Ian Struthers in that final.
