It was an extremely well organised weekend by Cathy Taylor and everything ran to plan and it only rained for about 10 minutes, so we were lucky albeit chilly on Saturday!
Results below, with winners in red. It was really good to see that it wasn’t the ‘same old faces’ appearing in multiple finals. We are a very strong club and the standard of play is high as was shown by the quality of the matches.
Huge thanks to Cathy for taking complete control of the weekend in her role as Competition Secretary as well as preparing the lunches on Saturday and for helping Ange, who prepared Sunday’s lunches. Thanks to the members who helped with the washing up and clearing up. Great team effort. Thanks to Jane and other volunteers who manned the bar for the weekend.
Also, a big thanks to Trevor who cut and rolled the green – it really is the best outdoor green in Middlesex! – and to Terry for turning it on Saturday morning. Thanks to the club members who volunteered to mark the matches as necessary and for everyone who came to support, watch and enjoy the finals. I’m sure they picked up some good tips and they applauded all the good bowls that were played. It made a difference to the ambience and atmosphere when every person is involved.
