COMPETITION FINALS WEEKEND

Results and Winners

Our club competition finals took place over the weekend of the 10th and 11th of September, the weather was favourable for most of the time players were on the green one shower on the Saturday afternoon effected the open singles final but did not stop play.

Saturday morning saw three games played simultaneously, the ladies, gents and fall at the first. The first game to be concluded was the fall at the first with Terry Butt beating Mike Pickering by 21 shots to 7. This was swiftly followed by the ladies final completing where Elaine Whiteman ran out winner over Linda Butt by the same score of 21 - 7. The men's singles took a little longer to complete with the result going to the wire, Tony Igle winning by one shot 21 - 20 over Martin Endersby.

Following a short break for refreshments Elaine Whiteman and Linda Butt went back out onto the green (on a different rink to comply with the rules) to play the Open singles final, this game took a bit longer than their morning match-up with the result a 21 - 14 victory for Elaine. Following the games players, markers and spectators gathered in the club house for some well-deserved lunch, tea, coffee and drinks from the bar.

Sunday morning bought a slightly damp and cool start for the mixed pairs, a decent number of spectators turned out to watch Elaine Whiteman and partner Terry Butt take on Wendy Walker and Martin Endersby. As the weather cleared and warmed up the game was shaping up as a well fought affair, the score was fairly close until the last couple of ends and by the last end started Wendy and Martin had manged to get in front by enough of a lead that their opponents needed a hot shot of eight to draw level, final result being 19 shots to 13.

A massive thanks must go out to all the players, markers, helpers and spectators for making the weekend a success, also thanks to all the members who took part in the competitions throughout the season and made sure the games were all played on and without any hitches. Trophies will now be taken away to be engraved and will be presented to the winners at our Christmas party / presentation evening in December.

                                                         Q & Q CUP, 2022

Our annual Quantity not Quality cup competition took place on Saturday 3rd September. This in house fun competition used to be played by just our ladies section, over the last couple of years it has been opened up to all members and some guest players as well. The way this game is played is rather unique, with each player bowling with two wood on a rink with up to another seven or eight players, after everyone on there particular rink has bowled their two wood the scoring takes place with the nearest wood gaining five point, the second nearest three point, third placed two points and fourth placed wood one point. After eighteen ends played on three different rinks each player hands in their score card and the winner is simply the player with the most points.

    This years winner was one of our guests, Eric Odell, with a total of 46 points.

The game was followed by a super feast of jacket potato with either chilli or beans and grated cheese, along with a lovely side salad, followed by some fantastic home baked cakes, and of course plenty drinks from the bar.

A massive thanks to the ladies who planned and organised the afternoon along with laying on the food afterwards, and not forgetting the guys behind the bar, the afternoon was a huge success and everybody is already looking forward to next year.
