Fourteen brave gals of the ‘Beanie Brigade’ braved the single-figure temperatures and icy winds in an impressive show of dedication to return to sport on Tuesday. Several girls went incognito with only their eyes showing through beanies, scarves, hoods and masks.
I think Fran Dixon and Eileen Bradley were vying against Kay Craft and Joan Simpson, but went down by a few shots on Rink 3.
Elaine Miller tripped on Betsy Johnstone’s scarf, handicapping her action, resulting in a loss against Jan McPhee and Marja Iffland in a low-scoring game on Rink 5.
Merilyn Rodgers used the unfair advantage of double hand-warmers and teamed up with Gwenda Carty, who wore her whole wardrobe, and Maureen Miller to thoroughly defeat Brenda Davies/Lea Orr/Lynn Ryan in an enjoyable stoush on Rink 4.
So good to return to the warm clubhouse for a catch up and bonus cream cake thanks to President Maureen!
We adopted the new idea of just marking one card in social games, with the 2nd skip keeping track on the scoreboard – great addition.
The draw for the Club Championship Fours is:
• B Davies/B Johnstone/L Byrne/R Went vs F Dixon/H Harvey/J Simpson/M Miller
• M Rodgers/K Evans/R Mitchell/J McPhee vs M Iffland/M Willcockson/G Carty/C Frame
• D Howell/L Ryan/L Orr/M Grant vs K Craft/C Curteis/L Baker/E Miller
• Bye: J Green/L Keane/E Bradley/C Reed
First round to be played next Tuesday, 28th September at 10am.
Nominations are now open for Club Minor Singles and Minor Pairs. Our next Trading Table, with “floral” gift theme, will be held on 19th October.
Thanks Baldy and Ground Control for your dedication to keeping the greens alive!
