The second session of the Trail Retirees Curling wrapped up last week coinciding with the start of the holiday break.

To celebrate, all five players on a team curl, then enjoy a lunch and a draw to the button for a turkey. With the skips sitting off the first end, team Ernie Brown jumped out to a commanding 6-0 lead. Tom Hall’s rink fought back but could not overcome the first end meltdown as team Brown prevailed 10–7.

Team Pat Fennell faced team Harvey Handley in a low scoring game till the sixth end when team Handley scored three and jumped out to a 5-3 lead.

Stealing one in the seventh end, team Handley was poised for the win, but Fennell lying two with a draw to the full four foot for the tie, squeaked by a guard and bit the button for the 6–6 draw.

Primo Secco and Brett Rakuson were tied after seven ends in a well-played game by both sides.  In the last end Primo had hammer, facing three Rakuson counters, he was left with a hit and roll.  Primo’s shot rubbed a guard and slid through the house, giving Rakuson the 8 – 5 win.

Jim Stewart’s five-some was locked in a battle with team Serge Pasquali.  Tied after four ends team Stewart broke the game open with five in the fifth.  Playing aggressively, team Pasquali, could not close the gap and Stewart won 10 – 6

Team Dan Horan fell behind early to a hot shooting team Murray Walsh.  Leading 6-0 after three ends team Walsh kept the remaining ends simple and traded singles through seven ends.  Down by six team Horan was run out of rocks in the eighth, giving Walsh the 8 – 2 win.

Congratulations to Team Ernie Brown for winning the second section.  Since Ernie won the first section Ernie will skip that team in the finals. The second place skip, Clare Coleman, will skip the second section winners.
