Against Shirley Page of Baldock in the national competition, Gascoine gained a 10-0 lead at the start. Page drew level and took a two-shot lead into the final end. Two more shots gained her a 21-17 victory.

In the County Singles Gascoine played Beryl Driscoll at Harpenden BC and won 21-10.

St Albans played away at Harperbury BC in a mid-week mixed rink game and won 86-48. The top rink was Carole Ewer, John Cooper, Eileen Englebright and skip Keith Titmus.

On Saturday St Albans beat Hitchin 69-57. It was an equal game until the last few ends when St Albans pushed ahead. The top Rink was John Saguiez, Tony Morris, Sybil Steers and Dave Church.

Sunday’s game was again very close with the lead changing places three times. Harpenden came out on top in the end, winning 82-66 with a contribution of a hot shot by Jean Clark, Trevor Robson, Angela Favell and Gordon Burrow. St Albans’ top rink was Carole Ewer, Trevor Ewer, Joyce Wilson and Jim McGregor.
