Charity Melee and Isle of Wight Twinning

This years charity day was held on the 21st of August with proceeds going to Alzheimer’s Research, with Lois out of action in the kitchen the decision was taken to combine this event with the Isle of Wight twinning it being our turn to host. It was great to see 8 players from the island and together with guests from local clubs we had a total of 27 entries with Sheila, Sue and myself making a combined team from the kitchen.
Our island guests caught an earlier ferry so we were able to start at 10.15 with 3 timed games before lunch.

An excellent BBQ was provided a lot of which was cooked at home by Lois on her crutches, it was almost a bridge to far to play and prepare the food so thanks to all those who pitched in.

2 more hard fought games in the afternoon and the raffle and prize giving a great day had by all.

Nice to see Wayne Thatcher has lost none of his skills finishing in 1st place with 4 wins
