Another bright morning. Chilly, but then that could be expected in November.
Coaching this morning from 9.30 am for new bowlers.
At 10.00 am, there’s a National Ladies Pairs with Sarah & Lucy playing Ange & Jean. It’ll be a good close match, so do pop in if you’re around about the Cambridge Park area.
Unfortunately the boys didn’t make it through the first round of the Denny Plate v Hounslow yesterday morning which was a shame. Peter Twell’s boys only lost by one shot having clawed their way back from 6 shots behind earlier in the match. Steve’s four caught up from behind to go ahead for a short while but the Hounslow four skipped by Paul Cater managed to win in the end and Laurie’s chaps lost out to Dave Pitt’s four. Gym’s guys pulled up to 14-14 after 15 ends, then dropped back. I understand the rub of the green was going Hounslow’s way after an – wicking in shot gave Hounslow 5 points. If you’re in the head ….. Anyway, well done to Scott and Steve P who made their debut appearances in the club team for a national competition. Thanks to Darren Stanford who umpired at Cambridge Park and to Jane behind the bar and Tina making pre-match drinks in the kitchen.
It was almost an girls’ afternoon for the roll up yesterday with two Bernards joining us, having being caught up in the rugby traffic. It was fun and it was also a great opportunity for us all to try out some different shots as it was a very relaxed afternoon.
Brentford were playing but like our chaps in the morning, they didn’t beat Norwich. I’m sure Delia Smith and Stephen Fry were pleased with their team’s win even if our CP supporters weren’t. Hopefully our West Ham followers will have a more fruitful afternoon’s watch when they take on Liverpool. Think I’ll stick with Strictly!
