Eight teams set out from all points in sunshine but by the time they foregathered at the clubhouse clouds and rain raised their ugly heads (so to speak). However, the weather quickly bucked up, so that play could begin shortly after the due time of 1pm.
The format was a snake, each team playing four games by lot. (Has not our little plastic bingo machine been one of the club’s wisest investments?)
By the end of the afternoon, although both winning all four games, David and Stephan won the competition, by virtue of a superior points difference (+44) to that of Alan Issler and Tony (+29). Jill C and Ian came third. Well done to them and to all the contestants.
