Throughout the summer they played 4 rounds against pairs from clubs around the West of Scotland (Vale of Leven, Troon Welbeck, Bearsden and Southerness), after 4 victories they were the regional winners! This resulted in a trip to the Grand final at the Belfry played over the Derby course.On the Sunday they played a practice round and on Monday the main competition. They were competing against 12 other pairs and they knew that they needed to play their best to be in with a chance.
