Race Day 15th May

21 people turned out for our Race Day, although it started off cloudy the sun came out and it was quite warm. We played a 3 round melee and the winners were 3rd place – Brendan 2nd place – Nell and the winner was Christine who were all presented with rosettes. We held a raffle which raised £41. Best dressed on the day were Graham and Claire who made a massive effort.

May Melee

30 people played which is one of the best turnouts for some time. A dry day but a bit cloudy. Winner on the day was Pete with Rita S & Sue C joint second. With last months leaders not scoring many points the pack closed up but Maureen will win again if she if beats Sue but Sue can win it if she beats Maureen by 2. If these 2 don’t play and score well there is a chance for 13 others who could pinch it but they’ll need a big score to do it and for all their rivals to falter. June the 5th will be a crucial competition. E & OE subject to sight of scoresheet from the event.

AGM & Easter egg Melee

All went well. AGM took just over 20 minutes, Pete and Margaret Cowley were elected to the committee, Subs stayed the same and are now due. No proposals were submitted for discussion and we chose Prostate Cancer as our charity for 2022.

Easter egg melee went well. Everyone won an egg but some eggs were bigger than others. The three main prizes went to Christine in 3rd place but Kevin and Margaret had identical records of 3 wins and +17 points so Kevin gallantly let Margaret take the dinosaur egg while he took the second prize.
