This was the scene at Greenacres yesterday, the two European Seniors Invitation finals taking place side by side.
Keith Prentice (front) was fortunate to qualify for the playoffs, in eighth place. In the quarters the Prentice team defeated the hitherto unbeaten David Clydesdale, then Gary Macfarlane in the semis. Colin Hamilton beat Michael Sutherland in the quarters, and Sweden's Pelle Lindeman in the semifinal. All the linescores can be found here.

Mike Dick is throwing, with Ian McPherson and Trevor Dodds at the ready.
It's a serious business! Lockhart Steele.
Ingrid Meldalh and Jacqui Crawford. The Swedes had beaten Alison Reekie in the semifinal. Jacqui and her team had needed an extra end to get past Kirsty Letton in the other semi.

All hands to the pumps, as Ann-Catrin Kjerr joins her skip and the front end.
Alison is a study in concentration...
... as she watches Elaine and Fiona looking after her stone.
Well done to Team Meldahl and Team Prentice on their wins.
