A Mixed Bag Today

The sun has been shining up here at Potters in Hopton-in-Sea – better than yesterday when we arrived in either fog or very thick sea mist!

All our teams have played twice and we have had a mixed bag of wins, losses and draws. We’ve met up with familiar faces and struggled to remember names. We’ve walked to the sea, watched the football, played bingo, eaten excellent food and caught up with each other over coffee/tea/beer/wine and enjoyed the fantastic Potters Theatre Company show again tonight.
The highlight for some was Laurence getting to grips with the CP table football draw and then actually playing some games. “Who are that noisy lot?” “ Must be the Cambridge Park Tourists shouting every time someone scored a goal. They must think their playing in the World Cup knockouts!”

Men’s Over 60’s Liberty Trophy

Good luck to the MIddlesex Men’s Over 60’s Liberty Trophy Team v Essex which includes Mike Cooper, Steve Gibson, Norman Chart, Kevin Keown and Dave Pitt.
The three away rinks have a long hike to Southend.  Shame there won’t be time for paddling and ice cream on the beach!!

Play well MIddlesex!

Nearer to home Ann Bamber & Di Salmon ( super subbing for Jean and her broken elbow) take on Ann Rapley & Isobel Morton (?) from Egham in the National Over 60’s Pairs

It’s definitely a week for the Over 60’s, isn’t it?


It Was Just Not Our Weekend!

Well we all went out and gave it our best but it wasn’t enough in the Denny & Yetton Plate comps and National Top Club.

The heads in each rink were pretty good as a whole but the opposition came sneaking in!

Anyway, congratulations to Tricia, Lucy, Sarah & Karen and to Kevin K, Mike C, Peter J & Gym for their winning rinks on Saturday and well done to Peter Judge who was the sole winner for Cambridge Park in the Men’s Two Bowl Singles element of the Top Club. Great stuff.

Peter is back in action this week on Thursday evening in the Over 60’s Men’s Pairs v Dave Pitt as are Steve G & Norman(?) in the Over 60’s Men’s Pairs v Paul Cater and Tina & Dawn in the Over 60’s Ladies Pairs v Pauline & Doreen all at Cambridge Park. Sounds like a SAGA evening except that none of us look our age!!
Peter T & Dawn are playing National Mixed Pairs on Wednesday evening at Egham and L&SC Mixed Pairs on Saturday morning at Cambridge Park.

Sunday 13th. November – Mixed Friendly v West Surrey BA

We look forward to welcoming West Surrey BA to the club this afternoon at 2:00.
Cliff, Scott, Corale, Bob, Frances, Ann B, Shaf, George (apologies for scaring Gordon!), Ranjani, Ray V, Kevin L, Tony O’B, Pauline, Bill, Malcolm & Christine will be taking to the green on behalf of CP.
good luck everyone!


At 10:00 Steve, Ian, Norman & Dave P play their first round of their L&SC Single Ronk Competition. If you’re around to give them some support, they’d be pleased to see you!
