Right, now. Tiebreakers are filling the ice this Saturday evening. We've already posted about the logjam for second place in Section C of the House of Bruar Scottish Senior Women's Championship. Section B turned out similarly. Mary Barr's team finished top. Isobel Torrance, Margaret Gibb (skipping Margaret Cameron's entry) and Alison Petrie were tied for second place. Team draw shot distance gave Isobel the bye. Margaret and Alison are playing their four-end tiebreaker at the moment. The winner will play another four end game against Isobel for a place in the quarterfinals later this evening.
The results are all here.
In the men's event, David Clydesdale and his team finished top of Section B to book a place in tomorrow's semifinals. Barton Henderson and Bob Kelly are playing off for the second qualifying place from that section.
In section A, Keith Prentice and his team are through, but there is a possibility there could be a five way tie for the second qualifier. You can work it all out here!
They will be sweeping people out of the Lanarkshire Rink in the early hours of tomorrow morning!
