On 13th March 2016 Bedfordshire
travelled to West Sussex.
We were represented by the following players:
Team 1 - Martyn MacDonald, Lin Hurren, Patricia Ball and Neil
Team 2 - Susan Savage, Pauline Baynes, Mike Walker and George
Team 3 - Sue MacDonald, Betty Johnson, Paul Hurren and Harold
Bedfordshire were made to feel
very welcome on arrival. The weather was glorious outside and
there was a nice atmosphere.
We got off to a flyer in the
first session winning both games. Neils team were very
impressive with a 14 7 win. George Savage put his first
two woods off the mat but his team clinched it 7 6.
Another great game for Neils
team in the second session winning 13 4 and that was after
a slow start. Harolds team had to put up more of a fight
and managed a draw 12 12.
We stopped for afternoon tea
which was splendidly laid on by West Sussex
There were mix fortunes in the
third session. Both games were tight with just one shot in it
in at the end of both, Harold winning 6 - 5 and Georges
team losing 6 7.
Since we could only field three
teams The fourth session was played out by Neil and Harolds
teams who finished as the top two teams from the three previous
sessions. So went they went through to the fourth.
The spoils were shared in this
last session. A good, tough win for Harold 10 9, but a
loss for Neils team 4 12.
Overall a good day had by all.
Bedfordshire finished on 11 points with 72 shots while West Sussex
finished on 5 points with 62 shots.
Our time down south was finished
off with a lovely evening in the Premier Inn bar and restaurant.
Unfortunately, Neil had to return back that evening for an early
start for work next day. He will tell you though, if you really
want to know, about the Fish and Chips saga the night before!
I would like to thank the Bedfordshire
team for giving a much improved West Sussex team a good game.
The social side of the weekend was excellent. Well done to all.
