Happy Mother’s Day!

To all mothers everywhere , May you have a wonderful day.
And to those of us who no longer have our Mums around, we will remember you for all the love and wisdom you gave us.
(According to this week’s news, at about 38 years old, we all realised that our Mums were right in almost everything. We’d better make sure our children feel that we have passed in wisdom, love and care and not any nagging!)

Well Done Andy & Will!

A hard fought quarter-final between Andy & Will v Pete & Nick from Century saw our boys come through 20-16. Andy gallantly reported that Will had a brilliant game from start to finish.

This means that the semi-final which will be even harder fought between the pairs will see one CP team in the Middlesex Pairs Final on 15th April at Glebelands in Finchley.
Well done.
Let us know when the hot date will be so lots of us can come and watch!

Middlesex Men’s Pairs Quarter-Final This Afternoon starting at 4.00 pm

If you’re out and about this afternoon near the club and/or playing in the leagues tonight, there will be a good match on when Andy H & Wll take on Peter Wilcock and partner fromCentury.  It promises to be a good match played over 21 ends, so won’t be finished in under 3 hours. 4 hours are permitted.  The winners face the two P’s (Twells & Judge) in the semi-final.

On Saturday, BT couldn’t get a team out unfortunately, so we have opposition rinks from Ashford, Bishop Duppas, Hounslow and ANO- maybe Chertsey.  On Sunday we welcome our friends from Ember for another mixed match.  Both those games start at 2:00 pm.

They Won! Whoop-de-doo!

What a brilliant result! 19-15.
Steve, Norman and Peter led 7-2 after 4 ends; 10-4 after 10 ends then all went quiet for another hour and half until the news came through!

So it’s off to Nottingham they go in early April

Dave P & Eldred lost the Area Finals of the Over 60’s Pairs by 4 shots.   So close.

 

Closer to home the rinks were in full flow for the Open Triples. Next rounds tomorrow morning at 10:00 followed by the semi finals at 2:00 pm

Well done to the organisers.  They had absolutely no need to worry as everything went smoothly.   Jane was kept busy behind the bar as well

Tomorrow there is a sandwich lunch for £3:50 . Priority to competitors  – we don’t want them fainting on the green!

 

There’s always one or three getting into the spirit and trying to put their opposition off …..
