Report on Metropolitan Challenge 2017

The event comprised district teams from Brisbane, Brisbane North, Caboolture & Cunningham.  Each side consisted of 4 teams of 4 players. Games to be played over 18 ends with a minimum of 50 ends constituting a game.

The draw had Cunningham competing against Caboolture first followed by Brisbane North & finally Brisbane District.

Caboolture Game - Cunningham had a 22 shot win 66 - 44.  This game was completed without weather disruption.

Brisbane North -  Cunningham had a 1 shot win 61 - 60.  One rink had completed all 18 ends when time was called.  Two others were playing their final end and one rink their 17th end when all players were called from the green due to lightning.  As time had elapsed there was no return to the match and Cunningham prevailed by 1 shot.

Brisbane Game - Both Districts were two game winners before the commencement of the match with Brisbane holding a 49 shot margin and Cunningham 23.  The Cunningham side started strongly and were never headed while playing in rain of varying intensity.  56 ends had been completed when lightning again forced the officials to call players from the green. Given the intensity of the rain and the continuation of lightning the match was called off with the results to stand as the minimum 50 ends had been completed.  Final scores Cunningham 60 - Brisbane 44

Cunningham will hold the Metropolitan Shield for 2017
