The Xmas lights were switched on with a genuine elf from Golcar. Being as it was early afternoon the lights didn’t shine very brightly but the Xmas elf shortly afterwards collected her prize for winning the Autumn melee.
The second presentation was for the Champion of Champions Trophy. This is calculated from 7 of the major club events with points allocated for top 5 and added up to produce what is effectively the “player of the year” result. 2021 winner is Robin.
More Christmas elves appeared.
After the first round there were mince pies and mulled wine inside the clubhouse and the raffle for Xmas baskets was drawn. Winners were Maureen, Kathy & Margaret and the final amount raised this year for our chosen charity – Age UK – was over £350.
The raffles were organised by the social committee and two of them were at the draw. A huge thank you to the team who put on great events and raised a substantial amount. Next year they’ll do it again and we’re looking to choose a new charity for 2022. Give us your suggestions.
Finally as the sleigh of a sozzled Santa cruises past the Castle Hill of destiny HPC wishes you all a merry Christmas and looks forward to a full year of playing petanque.
