The Primo Secco rink took down one of the top teams in the Trail Retirees Curling Club’s third session.

Secco faced the Dan Horan foursome, with the turning point coming in the fifth end. Amid a sea of team Secco rocks, and buried behind a long guard sat a lone Horan stone.  With perfect weight and great sweeping team Secco took out the Horan stone and counted five, on their way to an 11–5 victory.

Cal McKerracher’s foursome faced the Serge Pasquali team, this day skipped by Cliff Tyson.  Scoring five in the second end, team Pasquali was able to limit scoring chances and shut down team McKerracher’s offence. Tyson shot lights out and called a great game for the win.

In a game that had two ends of five, the Harvey Handley side battled the Frank Jorgensen foursome.  Unfortunately for the Jorgensen side, the Handley side scored both fives.  Make the final 11–3 for Handley.

Forest Drinnan’s team faced the Tom Hall foursome in a game that all eight players  had draw weight down pat.

The turning point however was a double takeout in the second end to score four for the Hall side.  A well curled game for both sides saw the Hall team prevail 9–3.

Team Murray Walsh faced a streaking Team Jim Stewart, but after seven ends punctuated by sterling shots, it was tied at five.

With hammer in the eighth the Walsh team was forced to a takeout with last rock.  Executed almost flawlessly and giving the game to Walsh, 8–5.
