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
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
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.
