Elgin’s Kenny OswaId has a clear Division 1  lead at the mid season Christmas break after his straightforward win over Aberlour’s Andy Cameron.A 2-2  score line after 3 ends proved to be the summit of the Aberlour quartet’s achievement on the night,as Oswald won all the remaining ends for a 10-2 victory. The Sunninghill rink skipped by Angus Gunn was 8-6 down going into the last end against Buckie’s Alan Campbell,but last stone advantage allowed the Hotel team to pick up a 4 for their 10-8 win. The night’s tightest game was a real see saw affair in which the lead changed hands 4 times before Willie Cameron’s Aberlour rink just got the better of Mike McDonald’s Forres  rink skipped by Greg Stephen.In Division 2,Dave McPherson’s Elgin Tennis rink have reached the mid season break with a 100% record, racking up their fifth straight win. Abby Duncan opened proceedings with 3 shots at the first end,but that was it for the Fochabers four as the Tennis Club won the next 5 ends for a 6-3 victory. Darnaway’s Eddie Milne had the night’s biggest win as he scored at each of 6 ends including a 4 and two 3’s as he thrashed Fochaber’s Alan Durno 13-4. Wilson Burnett skipping the absent Bill Jaffrey’s Fochabers team raced to a 6-0 lead before Andrew Allardyce fought back with a 3 in the fourth end. Single counts with the hammer at each of the next 4 ends were sufficient to give Burnett an 8-5 victory.In Division 3, Charlie Watt jnr,almost inevitably it seems,won the Forres club derby with yet another big win against Linda Hardie. Skip Carol Bennett picked up 3 singles but couldn’t stop the Watt onslaught as Charlie rang up  3 counts of 3 in his 12-3 win.In the Province Open Knockout there were wins for Alan Durno and Bob Stewart as they got the better respectively of club colleagues Wilson Burnett and Andrew Allardyce.
