The Elmburn Shield.
The annual tournament between Elmwood Park and Burnside was held today in very windy and difficult conditions. 8 fours teams from each club opposed each other playing one game of nine ends and then moving rinks and playing a second game, again of nine ends.
After the first games Burnside was ahead 7 – 1 but Elmwood improved in the second games to tie 4 – 4. Overall a comprehensive win to Burnside thus regaining the Elmburn Shield.
A great day with games played in great spirit. Thank you Burnside for your hospitality.

Nationals, Singles and Pairs Summary. 2021
Highlight of this tournament would have to be the men’s pairs win by Lance Pascoe and Jamie Hill.
Lance Pascoe and Jamie Hill have completed a perfect run through the men’s pairs at the Summerset Nationals in Auckland. The composite combination have beaten the experienced Mike Bradshaw and John Carruthers (Royal Oak) 19-6 in the final at Carlton Cornwall, having won all eight of their previous games over the four days of competition.
After a number of near misses it was Pascoe’s first national title.
“It’s good to get the monkey off the back. I’ve been in a few semis and a final so I’m rapt,” Pascoe said.
Pascoe paid tribute to his lead Hill, who got the better of him in the final of the national fours in Mt Maunganui last year.
Mandy Boyd only just lost the women’s singles to Nicole Toomey in a pulsating last few ends. So close.
Andrew Kelly defeated, only just, Lance Pascoe in the first round of post section singles while Gary Lawson fell in the round of 32.
Tayla Bruce and Clare Hendra defeated the Boyd sisters in the quarter finals of the women’s pairs.
Well done to all the participants, you have done Elmwood Park proud.
