Firstly, hard luck to Kevin & Laurence losing their last 16 match v Richard & Rob Hackwell. It was nip and tuck for a while, but the Ashford father and son moved ahead in the last 4-5 ends.
Secondly, commiserations to Cathy who lost the semi final of the Middlesex Champion of Champions to Elaine from Hurlingham Park. Elaine then went on to lose the final v Hannah Hollis of Bush Hill Park, who has had a tremendous season.
Today sees the Club Singles Semi-finals and final, the former starting at 10.00 am and the latter around 1.00 pm. If you are coming to support, you will be able to get a drink but the bar is mainly in the kitchen as the original bar area is under refurbishment. There will be some cake if you want just tea and cake but no ‘lunch’.
Stella S, Audrey, Ange & Dawn in the Ladies semis and Brian C, Brian N, Peter C & Gordon in the Men’s.
Further afield, Lucy & Kevin and Tina & Mike C are playing in the quarter finals of the Middlesex Mixed Pairs at Wealdstone – not against each other. We would, of course, like them only to meet in the final!
Later this afternoon, Dave P has a Thames Valley final. I’ve now got so confused with all the area competitions, I cannot remember what he is playing!
Anyway, good luck to all our members wherever they are playing today. Weather is good too and the greens should be running smoothly.
Hope to see some of you later.
