There was a lot of fun and banter across the green yesterday afternoon as our London Welsh visitors and CP enjoyed the first mixed friendly match of the year. The home team scored a good win overall.
Top rink (by one shot to Dave Pitt’s team) were Steve G, Tricia, Norman & Corale.
An excellent meal followed prepared and served by Karen and sous chefs Sarah & Julian. Thank you. Thanks also to Jane who was kept on the go behind the bar all afternoon and to Ann who put together a themed raffle.
it was Luigi’s last role as London Welsh President and he handed the chain of office over the new President, Carole Atkinson. The LW’s first lady to hold the position. Congratulations!
speeches were held and LW’s immediate Past President handed out a list of fines for not wearing a L W blazer, to wearing a French top underneath a LW one to wearing Bowls England shorts to his opposing team’s skip because he couldn’t think of anything to fine her for. It was hilarious and all the proceeds went to charity.
Yet again, Luigi completed the day’s events by giving us a song. (Unfortunately the video isn’t uploading but it’s on our FB page.)
May I add my thanks to Karen, Sarah and Julian for the excellent hot and tasty cottage pie. Great comfort food!
I agree. It was very good indeed. They’ve got the job!
