Alan VIickery and Mike Bass skipped their rinks to wins, while Villis battled to a draw, in a 102-85 loss.

The Somerset League teams had good wins as the As beat Weston Bath by seven shots, after wins for Wilson and Villis, and the Bs beat Chew Stoke by 17, with Vickery's rink picking up 15 shots in the last seven ends to win.

Banwell ended the week with a four-shot mixed friendly win over Yatton, as Graham Millard's rink stormed home by 19 shots.
