Gordon MacLeod and Ange Cumine! Huge Congratulatiosn!
The finals were worthy of such with plenty of banter amongst the men and serious concentration with the girls.
Peter Chapman had a good win over Brian Noel and Gordon over Brian Curwood in the men’s semi-finals and Ange had a comfortable win over Audrey and Dawn scraped through v Stella Spaulding.
In the Ladies’ final, Dawn took a strong lead playing short jacks, then went off the boil as Ange came into her own with long jacks, so from being 3-16 down, Ange had a great come back to win 21-16.
There seemed to be a of antics on the next door rink with Peter lying on the mat at one point and a crowd hanging over the ditch to see who was holding. Anyway, Gordon came through as the winner and it was a good match enjoyed by all.
Thanks to Laurence for organising the competition, to Margaret for setting the rinks out, to Roy, Terry, Richard H and Laurence for marking and to Jane behind the bar, and Gym on his gardening watering stint!
It was good to see so many people watching and applauding where appropriate and enjoying the occasion and finally, thank you to the sun, which came out and stayed out, making playing and spectating much more enjoyable!
Across the county, Lucy & Kevin won their quarter final 21-20 and Mike & Tina won theirs 21-19 (on the last end apparently). Great news but then they had to play each other and Mike & Tina secured their place in the Middlesex Mixed Pairs Final on Saturday 25th September. They play Tony Waller (Ladygate) & Rose Mayo (Rosedale Park). Good luck to them.
Dave Pitt was pon fairly even scores at 5 ends v Roy Spencer in the Thames Valley Pairs final. I haven’t had the result yet.
