Inaugural Chairman's Cup 2017


Won by Marian Cuckson

Marian Cuckson won the first Chairman's Cup and will be back to defend her title on the first Monday of September in 2018.


A very strong field of 12 players were split into 2 leagues of 6. Each player played 5 games.


Marian won her league with 4 wins out of 5.


The other league was much closer. With Mary Grove playing her last game the outcome of which would determine who won the other league. If she lost Ken Pickett would win the league by 'who beat who' and if she won there would be a 3 way tie with Brian Dawes through to the final on overall hoop score.


Mary lost 4 - 7 to Frances so Ken went through to the final having beaten Brian in the league.


The final was over fairly quickly with Marian winning 7 - 2.


Well done Marian.

Tuesday 22 August



To the eighteen or so Lawn and Gardening workers who on Tuesday moved hoops, gave the hedge a major short back and sides and weeded gardens and lawns.


And of course to speed things along some of the boys played with some of their petrol powered toys. The gang then humped the numerous cuttings and weeds to the yard for disposal.


So thank you:

Andrew and Fiona Fall, Des and Ella, John, Marian H and Marian C, Michael and Francis B, Peter and Jenny R, Mary, Dave H, Phillip, Valerie S, Peter B, Brian D and Brian S.


Apologies if I’ve missed anyone.
