+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++September 2021+++++++++++++++++++++++++
This weeks leagues (starting 20 September for 2 weeks) took on a new format.
Format
Nominated pairs to continue.
3 Bowl pairs
Matches will consist of 3 sets over 5 ends each.
All 3 sets MUST be played and the scores in each set noted
Lead / Skip can ONLY be changed at the start of a new set

Scoring
Teams will gain 1 point for each set won.
The pair winning the most sets will gain a bonus point
In the event of a drawn match there will be no bonus point.
Please note overall result of the specific score in each of the 3 sets.

Feedback would suggest that this format was enjoyed by most and so we will run a similar format in 2weeks time. However the scoring system will be revised next time around as the original scoring rules gave no credit for a match / set drawn and in effect treated a draw like a loss.

As to the competition itself the final standings are shown below. Congratulations to all the league winners but in particular to Barbara and Brian who not only won all 4 matches but every set as well.
