I would call September late summer. And last night, the Tuesday evening roll up was in full swing. By 8:30 pm, they should have been wearing miners’ helmets. The ones at the far end of the green were moving shadows!
It was also a good evening for sitting out with a drink because it was so balmy but also good listening to the chatter.
For one young lass, Aviva, it was her last night off. Wiling with us before she heads back to Dublin to her uni course studying medicine. We wish her well in her second year and hope she finds an indoor club where a few of her fellow medical students can have an hour or two away from studying. Of course, they could study muscular skeletal movements and where potential issues could arise (knees and hips!) so playing could also have other useful benefits!
we still have another couple of outdoor fixtures (alas this afternoon’s had to be cancelled) against Masonians away on Sunday 17th and our own in/house Men v Ladies match at 1:00 on Saturday 23rd. There’s a sheet up at the club, so do sign up!
Finals this Saturday will be the 75 Shots – Brian Crickmay v Roy E; Mixed Open Pairs – Peter Judge & John Eve v Gordon & Dave P on Saturday morning at 10:00, then the afternoon session at 2:00 will be Men’s Championship- Peter Judge v Peter Moyce;, Mixed Open Pairs – Dawn & Steve G v Jacqui & Brian Crickmay; and Men’s Pairs- Scott & Dave v Gym & Roy.
Sandwiches, crisps etc available at lunchtime
