٭ New Personal Best scores
Natasha improved her form significantly (by 0.7) from Eastleigh and with an additional whole mark on tariff held form there as well dropping just 0.2 compared to last time out. Although improving her placing, though, in a larger group, she just missed out on the finals by one place on tie-break. Qualifying to Nationals again, Natasha was just 0.7 off the mark to qualify to Ladies as well.
Stephen went a little better though after his disappointment at Eastleigh, picking up by just 0.3 in the set round his voluntary was nearly 2 marks better propelling him into the final in 2nd place - a position he held with even better marks on his second voluntary. This is an important step for Stephen putting him in with a good chance of a world age groups selection.
Scott, back from his skiing break, performed a reasonable set routine but then, despite a good start, fluffed his 6th move in the voluntary landing on the end deck. He is looking to do better in Cardiff!
