Various competitions were being played this week, with Club Competition wins for Ange in Ladies Singles, Dave P in Two Bowl Singles, Ann H & Peter J in the drawn Mixed Pairs, Lucy & Kevin L in Mixed Pairs. for a start. Kevin K & Richard D had a marathon on Friday night against Steve G & Mike C in the Middlesex Men’s Pairs. A long 21 end match which extended further by 3 dead ends! With Steve & Mike dropping a 5 on the 20th end, it gave Kevin & Richard a chance to nip in and clinch the match but Steve managed to get the shot on his 3rd bowl giving them a win. A good tight game!
It was a fun afternoon yesterday with the friendly v West Ealing & the ringer rink arranged by Dave P. Lots of cheering and bantering across the green with the odd wrong bias coming in for cheers and a loud of explosion of vicotry when Robin’s rink scored their first point when 0-20 down! CP managed to win on all 3 rinks v West Ealing with Steve, Tricia, Corale & Lucy taking top rink but Dave P’s Hounslow rink and Dawn’s CP rink ended in an honourable draw.
Well done to Alasdair and Shaf who made their debut match appearances. Both played well and contributed to their team’s successes.
Thanks to Robin from West Ealing bringing in bars of chocolate ‘as bribes’ which were enjoyed by all takers. Thanks to Jane behind the bar as well. Nearly everyone disappeared quite quickly due to the England v Scotland rugby.
We have moved the friendly v Hampton to 10.00 am on Saturday 26th February as England are playing at Twickenham in the afternoon. Sign up sheet will be on the board by lunchtime today, as will the sign up sheet for Teddington on Sunday 20th February.
We are still looking for players for next Sunday 13th v London Civil Service, so please get your names down.
Sun’s out now. Hooray. It was pretty miserable out there at 8.00 am!
A quick further update. Andy Hawes and I beat Steve G and Mike C in the club pairs. Strange game in that we were 10-3 up early on only to find ourselves two down at 11-13 playing the seventeenth end.
We held one after the leads finished. I drew onto the jack to make it two. I drew a third. Steve took one of his woods out trying to split the head. I drew a another to get to five- I drew another -Steve missed a drive- We gained a six to go into the last end leading by four,
Won that end by two to finish 19-13
