Despite the torrential downpour yesterday morning, it was agreed the game would go ahead. George thought it might help in slowing their green down a bit! In fact the green looked lovely and the pace was perfect, although that doesn’t mean we all played perfect shots every time!
Audrey had a marathon and a half’s journey to get there with no underground and on rail replacement buses to Hounslow mainline before she could get on a train to Windsor & Eton Riverside. Well done for your 2.5 hour journey. Fortunately for us, Steve K, who plays for us indoors, was W&E’s reserve and he played Audrey’s trial and first 2 ends on her behalf. Thanks to Steve.
Top rink was Gordon, Ange & Dave and a very good win as did Steve, Tricia and Margaret – lots of banter on their green! Kevin’s team with Ray V and Lucy managed to clinch a 2 shot victory whilst George, Audrey & Dawn were 6 up going into the last end; played their worst end in front of the wind burned crowd and dropped a 5! Oops.
Excellent hospitality under these current Covid restrictions and Richard and his team members made us feel very welcome and everyone enjoyed two biscuits and a piece of cake each at half time and a hot drink!
Ange and I started the afternoon off with a picnic by the river (out of the wind), which made a nice change from grabbing lunch heading out of the front door!
