The day started cloudy but at a pleasant temperature but, by the time we reached Brentham, the sun was out in all its glory and the temperature shot up!
A real team effort across the rinks resulted in:
Singles – Dawn v Tonia: 21-10
Pairs – Ange & Ann v Mary & Pat: 18-16 (and talk about leaving in the last couple of ends – spectators now have very short nails)
Triples – Sarah, Lucy & Jean v Bernie, Christine & Frankie: 15-16 ( a game where the jack moved almost every end as well as more than once as the players took it in turn to nudge it this way and that!)
Fours – Tina, Tricia, Nadine & Cathy v Jan, Hazel, Pat & Janeen: 25-8
Thanks to Audrey, our reserve, Norman Teresa & Barry for their support and willing us on from the sides of the green .
Thanks to Brentham for their hospitality before and after the match on a very fast green; to Monica for marking; and Barry B wielding the long measure – he never had a chance to get his snooze in he was on so often!
That win put us into the Middlesex Area Final and we wait to see who our opponents will be. Whoever they are, it will be on a neutral green and we’ll let you know who, where and when
