Dartford Stone Lodge. Ladies. Yetton Plate. Saturday 16th November.

Fantastic scoring on the home green from Tricia Cave, Joan Moffat, Anne Welch and Brenda Bennett saw them take a 23-1 lead after only 10 ends, going on to win 31-15.  The second home rink, skipped by Rosemary Tuck, had a much closer battle emerging winners 18-16.
The two away rinks, skipped by Margaret Elsdon and Ann Munro, faced a difficult task and were several shots adrift at the half way stage.   However, encouraged by the score coming through from Sevenoaks, both rinks enjoyed an improved second half and ended up 16-22 and 19-23 down but with sufficient shots to ensure an overall 84-76 victory.

BROMLEY IBC. KENT LEAGUE. Wednesday 13th November

We, as per normal, lost the match and received no points, losing on each rink, the overall score being 136 to Bromley and 77 to Sevenoaks.

However, on the bonus side, we achieved double figures on all rinks. Also, two rinks did manage to win more ends than the opposition.

On a brighter note Brian, the Bromley captain, enthused on how much he enjoyed the meal which consisted of his favourite foods – chicken with sauce and crumble and custard. He was quietly reminded that the rest of us had beef and we wouldn’t tell Flo he thought it was chicken

A good day had by all and we had a full team.

Mens’ Kent League v Oyster IBC – Sunday 10 November

Thanks to several new and inexperienced members stepping up we were able to put out a full team of 6 rinks – many thanks to all who played.

Despite holding our own well into the 2nd half the match then slipped away with us losing overall 103-142.  We did however win on 2 rinks to secure 2 valuable points – congratulations to the highest winning rink of Ray Fuller, Mike Langford, Alan Pull and Andrew Medhurst”

Mens’ Over 60 – Tuesday 5 November

Tuesday 5 November – Mens’ Over 60 Double Rink v. Swale B.   Our away team of John Biles, John Pulley, Brian Akery and Richard Purssell secured an honorable draw, 15-15.  Our home team of Steve Blackburn, Paul Blake, Tony Garvey and Pat Fogerty appeared on course for victory, leading 14-10 after 15 ends, but unfortunately went down in the final 3 ends to lose 14-17.  Regrettably we lost the tie overall by 29-32 and we are now also out of this competition.
