    Monday 4 September 2017 - Hat-Night
Although he already has the Scott Cup in the bag, Keith Sutherland keeps winning the Monday Hat-Nights! A handful at the final end gave him and Charlie Watt victory over Bob Pollock and enough to win overall.

Had Harry Sutherland taken more care over his scorecard he would have won the evening on a countback! He won his final five ends against Jim McKen, but only registered four of them!

Losing a four at the last end to Sandy Burgess cost Stuart Robertson the plaudits. He had led 11-1 after just four ends.

The main reason John Ross defeated Dean Dobbs was the five he earned at the thirteenth end.


K Sutherland 22, R Pollock 12; H Sutherland 20, J McKen 10; S Robertson 20, A Burgess 13; John Ross 18, D Dobbs 11.

    Tuesday 29 August 2017 - Over 55s' League
Forres finished sixth in their Over 55s' league table after losing out in their final game against Aberlour. Forres needed to win all three games against the visitors to leapfrog them, but lost out in two.

John McQuillan and Marjory McCarthy did their bit, leading from the start to eventually take a 10-3 lead. Their opponents then scored five shots in two ends to reduce the deficit, but John and Marjory were not to be beaten.

A second half collapse by Mary Williamson and Mary Sobey allowed their opposition to stage a fightback. The two Marys led 9-1 after seven ends, but got just three more shots as they lost out 13-12.

Eddie Cowie and Derek Sobey led 11-8 before dropping seven shots in three ends as they were overtaken. They eventually lost 17-13.
