(1) Well done to Kelly Wood, Jackie Lockhart, Lorna Vevers and Lindsay Wood who reached the final of the Berne Ladies WCT-e event at the weekend. The girls played nine games in total, losing an A road game to Switzerland's Mirjam Ott, but coming through B to get to the quarterfinals. There they beat Canada's Shannon Kleibrink and then Germany's Andrea Schopp in the semi to reach the final. They fell to Kelly Scott's World Champs in the last game.
Sarah Reid and her team played seven, won three and lost four, one of which was to Claire Milne's side who also played seven games winning four and losing three. All the results from Berne can be found here.
