An excellent turnout to this year’s Spring Melee of 33 players from across the region. The weather was kind all day long with the occasional appearance of the sun! This year’s winner and defending champion was Daena (5W +21), second Paul Hayward (4W +25, points for 59) and third was Julie (4W +25, points for 58). Strongest player by one point was Chris Sullivan (Kirdford) (1W -25). First Fanny’s were Sue Mac and Diana Slark, with Gerry and Paul Hayes (Muscliff Park) also being fanny’d.
A huge thank you to Lois and Gary for providing the food and to Sheila for running the raffle.
On a rather chilly April day 18 players fought it out for the Club Singles. Overall winner was David Kilshaw with Mark as runner up. Main Consolage was won by Paul Leverett. The Plate was won by Chris and Plate Consolage by George. The Spoon was won by Gerry. Some cracking games, especially the Plate final which was eventually won 13 – 12.
As ever a big thank you to Lois and Marion for the catering and everyone else who helped with the organisation.
This year’s Golden Boot took place on a lovely sunny morning. There were 13 Fareham players and 10 from Shedfield with Lois volunteering to play for Shedfield. After a hard fought contest, it was tied on 6 games each with Fareham retaining the Boot on the points total: 118 to 108.
A big thank you to Lois and Marion for the kitchen duty and Gary as soup maker!
