Congratuations to Chrissy and her fantastic team of helpers for the splendid Christmas lunch today. A record number I believe (?71)

Alternate Stroke Handicap Doubles Day - by John_Low 19/11/2017 @ 20:43

An fun day was had by all players in sunny if chilly weather. Four rounds of 14pt timed handicap games were played, in an Egyptian format. The event was won by Clive Grimley and Robin Wootton; congratulations to them

The runners-up were Liz Farrow and Simon Dobson.

The trophies were the two Castell Soda Syphons which Paul Castell generously donated in 2008 for the Alternate Stroke Advanced Open Tournament which used to be held in July. Unfortunately entries dropped off and the event has not been played for some time so it was good to see these unusual trophies being put to good use again.

Thanks to Deborah for running the competition so professionally.

4th - Reg and Dave
5th - Pam and Gerald

Steve Lewendon - by Liz_Farrow 14/11/2017 @ 18:59

I am so very sad to tell you that Steve Lewendon passed away today after a brave fight with cancer.He was a very valued member of our club for many years. Most of you will know him as the' man behind the bar' until this year. He was also coaching until very recently. He will be very much missed by all of us who knew him.
