In the West Fife Senior fours semi-final at Dalgety Bay, Bobby Reekie, Lindsay Black, Robert Thomson and Derek Easson did not perform anywhere near their normal game and lost by five shots to Dunfermline West End.

On Saturday Robert Thomson played in the final of the Fife Singles at Windygates against the local champion, Blair Fleming.

Local knowledge paid off as the game was played on an end rink where neither player played the ditch side as it was very unpredictable. Robert had one bad end where he lost a four. He was 3-1 up then went 8-6 down after 11 ends. He got it back to 11-13 when he lost the bad four. At 19-15 down he had game against him and threw a great bowl but only got second shot. At 20-15 he was game down again and bowled a back toucher. He was lying a single with Blair having one bowl to play. He played into the head and pushed one of his short bowls in for the shot to win the game. A good game to watch and Robert played very well. He stated that he "was beaten by the better player on the day".

Bowhill were the visitors at Cowdenbeath on Saturday afternoon for the friendly game. They brought 12 players and Cowdenbeath had 19. Scores were as follows, Cowdenbeath skips first, L King 11 A Preston 12, B Simpson 9 D Stevenson 10, Linda Duff 12 P Wilson 13, D Duff 15 S Law 15, and C Sommerville 5 Alan Moncur 26. They won the sweep for the most two's on the card. A lovely meal was had by all and a few refreshments.
