1st May and the sun was shining and it was warm – well relatively warm compared to recent days. Some of us even managed without a fleece!
The green played well although it’s still a bit pushy. As it’s only be open a week after all the work that the greenkeepers have put in over the winter, it’s in great condition.
Only one rink leapt ahead with a good lead – Rocket Ron, Ron C, Sheila M & skip Gym played really well and only came a cropper when Masonians took a 5 within the last few ends. Oh drat!
Both Stormin’ Norman’s team of Rita/Gerry, new CP member Audrey (welcome!) and Gorgeous George, and Ken W’s team of Brenda S, Dennis B and Dawn struggled to keep up with our Masonian opponents. There were some good heads on both rinks and a lot of cheerful banter as the odd one, two or three wicks secured a shot more by luck than skill for both teams. However as Gorgeous George says, you have to be in the head to count!
The overall result? 3-0 to Masonians or in fine detail 72-41. Well done to them.
Thanks to Brenda S for sorting out the post match refreshments and to George for being captain of the day.
