Oh Dear, Wet Wednesday

The Covid case numbers seem to be coming down again, many countries should be on the amber list allowing us to travel again without having quarantine (providing both doses of vaccine have been received), so we can go back to talking about the weather again !

As per usual when playing competitions v Ashford this season, the heavens opened at approximately 4.00 pm.  On arriving at the Club at 5.30 pm for our 6.00 pm start v Fordbridge Park, it was raining but not too heavily.  By 5.50 pm, it had stopped, the skies were clear and it was looking sunnier.  An inspection of the green and a quick swish to remove the debris that had fallen from the trees and we stepped out.

Sarah, Tricia, Ange & Dawn playing Liz, Sally, Jackei & Sue on Rink 2 whilst Jacquie, Marie, Janice & Rita McD headed onto Rink 3 v Marion, Anna and team.

 

 

 

By the time we started playing the fourth end ….

and we all came off drenched, huddling in Cathy’s Cottage, the shed or the Clubhouse, the few spectators beating us to it!

Within 30 mins, this appeared  …

but, alas, the green was too sodden around the mat area to allow play safely, so we all had to retreat inside with our diaries and enjoy an early libation.

So, play is rescheduled for this Friday at 6.00 pm for both matches with the addition of Cathy playing Ann T from Sunbury in the Middlesex Champion of Champions match.  Of course the Friday night roll uppers will also be there, so plenty to watch if you are not playing yourself and the bar will be open.

Has anyone dare check the weather forecast?!
