Getting to the Playoffs at Perth

Hammy McMillan took a five off Mike McEwen's Canadians in the first end of their B Road decider at the Ramada Perth Masters, and his team were on their way to a win which put them into tomorrow's quarterfinals. They join Niklas Edin and Logan Gray, the qualifiers from the A Road.

As I type this, Duncan Fernie is playing Ewan MacDonald, the winner goes through as the other B Qualifier.

For an overview of the B and C Roads, click on DRAW (not Results) in the menu bar of the event website, and then on B Road or C Road on the left of the page. Or simply click here or here.

As I left Perth tonight the four places from the C Road were to be decided. You can see for yourself who got through. You can follow tomorrow's progress on the event website. And read Clare's reports under the News Desk tab.

Me? I'm headed on my travels. Catch up with you later tomorrow.

Postscript: Added later. I see that Ewan MacDonald's team came through the B Road. The late night session in the C Road sees Murdoch v Ulsrud, Vuille v Fernie, Brewster v Pescia, and McEwen v Penny. What a feast for those snowed in at the Dewar's Centre with some of the favourites all on their last lives!
