Competition Report

(12 ends per game)
PLAYED -17th – 18th – 19th MAY

It seemed that the scene was set on the very first morning when “Just Made It” (Jonathan Barr, Maggie Richardson and Norman Richardson) romped away to a 22 shot difference over their first 12 ends played in this contest.

By the end of the 1st day, “Match & More”, Carol Davey, Ken Ayling and Ken Davey were hot on the heels of “Just Made It” and shared the top spot.

The single session on Tuesday saw Norman’s team pull ahead by gaining the win over Ken’s team. It then seemed to be a one horse race, with the other 5 teams vying for 2nd place.

But there’s nothing certain in this game and on the very 1st session of the last day saw “Dead Loss” (Phil Woodhead, Richard Watson and Jan Cockcroft) spoil the clean sheet of the leaders despite being 10 – 1 down at the 8th end.
They scored 10 points in the last 4 ends to win by 1 point – how dramatic was that?

The last session saw “Just Made It” just make it by winning, giving them a total of 4 wins over the contest, which could not then be equalled. Maggie Richardson decided to show off her repertoire of trick shots, starting with bowling a metre off the mat (yes OFF the mat!). Norman was seen to be shaking with what looked like laughter!

The prize-giving then took place:

WINNERS: Jonathan Barr, Maggie Richardson and Norman Richardson
SECOND PLACE: Carol Davey, Ken Ayling and Ken Davey
THIRD PLACE: Phil Woodhead, Richard Watson and Jan Cockcroft.

A great friendly, but competitive contest enjoyed by all, the players were unanimous in their praise for the organisational skills of Ken Davey, who even managed to give us 3 glorious days of sunshine!
The three days was rounded off with a super al fresco lunch prepared by Jan & free, thanks to "Matrix35finance". Delightful.
