Congratulations to Peter Twells, who won the 2020 club semi-finals of the Two Bowl Singles 21-20 v Roy Ebinezar and Peter Judge who beat Laurence 21-19. Both matches went to 31/32 ends, so you can tell how close they were. The markers went home exhausted!
On the National comps, Tina & Dawn managed to beat Ann B & Di in the Ladies Pairs in a hard fought game.
On Saturday, at the Middlesex Indoor delayed (2020) County Finals there were mixed results as Steve G, Mike C & Norman fell to the Bounds Green triples and Dave P’s Four also went out to Bounds Green after crawling all the way back from a 9 shot deficit to be 1 shot ahead going into the final end, then unfortunately they dropped a 2.
However, on the much brighter side, Ange claimed the Indoor Ladies Singles title with a 21-17 win over Angela Frankland and, along with Dawn, won the Ladies Pairs v Sue Apperly & Epe from The Lawns.
Dave Pitt secured the Men’s Singles title and with Ann Halliday, they had a very good win in the Mixed Pairs.
Well done to everyone who played; to Herga for hosting the event; Eric Prior for manning the bar; the ladies in the kitchen who ran an all-day catering service; to Mandy Simpson for Marking the singles matches and Vic Perry for Umpiring; and last, but certainly not least, to Andy Docker for setting up the whole day and being there supervising all the games, producing certificates, taking photos of the winners and runners-up and making the 2021-22 County Indoor Competition draws in between. An admin’s job goes on and on and on and on!
Roll ups every morning this week Monday to Friday 10.00 – 12.00 ; and Tuesday and Sunday afternoons 2.00 – 4.00pm; Leagues Monday to Wednesday evenings and Thursday afternoon.
You might find the odd National competition match slipped in between all these sessions as well as the Yetton Plate competition for the Ladies v Croydon on Saturday. Two rinks home, two away starting at 10.00 am. There are no Denny Cup matches, so ignore the rink bookings for that. Thanks
