The format of this competition is that players play four games of two ends with each game being played in a different position.
To add to the fun, the teams are also changed around after every two ends.
After an excellent meal Archie Fulton was announced as the winner with an excellent score of 14 shots up. Archie was closely followed by Gordon Whitelaw who was 12 shots up.
Play continued in the James Sharp Trophy with Ronnie Dunachie's rink, skipped by Alex Frew in Ronnie's absence, having a very close game against Ronnie Morrison's rink which finished level at seven shots each.
There was also a tight game between Alastair Woodburn's rink, skipped by Robert Cornwell in Alastair's absence, and a struggling John Laverty's rink.
Despite being six shots to one down after four ends Robert fought back to win the game by seven shots to six.
Elsewhere there were convincing wins for Derek Bowman over Ian McArthur by 12 shots to 4, Adam Clark over Crawford Howat by 11 shots to 6 and Ron Cromar over Preston Fleming by 10 shots to 4.
The results in the James Sharp Trophy leave Alastair Woodburn still top with 10 points from six games, closely followed by Derek Bowman and Ronnie Morrison with nine points and eight points respectively.
Jonathon Clinch is also sitting in a good position with seven points and a game in hand.
