SPRING FAIR THIS WEEKEND 14/15/16 MARCH
Just a quick reminder of our Spring Fair this weekend. Please bring in your produce, plants, crafts etc to the Club on or before Saturday. We also welcome Ladies and Gents clothes in good condition, nicely pressed if necessary (we don’t want it to look like a jumble sale). Have a look through your wardrobe and see if there are any items you have not worn in a season or two or unwanted gifts ready to be re-gifted to us to sell for Club funds. We are open Saturday and Sunday from 10 am and Monday 9 am so why not come along, enjoy a look round, maybe find a bargain and enjoy a coffee, cake etc.
Hello to all our members,
I have been asked about arranging a crib afternoon or evening for our members that play crib and would like to find out how many would be interested in taking part.
At the moment this would be a one-off but I am sure if it is successful something more permanent would be able to be arranged.
Please let me know if you’re interested email@example.com or see me at the club.
I will put a list up on a notice board at the club.
The YARDSTICK COMPETITION is on Sunday 29th March: 10am until 5.00pm.
It is a knockout Singles Competition of 6 Ends with a Plate Competition for First Round Losers.
For full details and to SIGN UP, see the Friendlies Notice Board
SEVENOAKS LADIES 8 PRINCE ARTHUR 2
97 SHOTS TO 93
The Ladies have done it again, yet another victory in a five-rink match against visitors Prince Arthur.
Clare Jolley, Dot Fuller, Anne Welch and Brenda Bennett had a ‘magic’ afternoon, everything going their way in a resounding 28-7 win. A 20-shot lead overall around the 15 end lulled the home team into a false sense of security. Prince Arthur were slowly closing the gap and tension was creeping in.
Sylvia Riley, skipping for a change instead of leading, performed extremely well in her side’s 23-15 win, despite dropping 5 shots on the 20th end. Ann Munro’s ladies dropped 10 shots over the last four ends to go down 21-26. The gap was closing. A 16-13 lead after 20 ends looked hopeful for victory but Margaret Elsdon’s team did not play a tight final end and it was left to Margaret with her final bowl to get her team out of the mire and ensure Sevenoaks scraped home 97-93.
BROMLEY LADIES 9 1/2 SEVENOAKS 1/2
92 SHOTS TO 74
A game of ‘what might have been’ on the Bromley green. More than holding their own over two-thirds of the game, Sevenoaks Ladies fell away over the latter stages and could only muster a half point for all their efforts.
Clare Jolley, Sally Garvey, Sylvia Stiefel and Anne Welch earned the lone half point. Having led 16-6, they went into the final ahead 16-15 ahead but missed their chance for victory:
16-16. Should have done better!
Brenda Bennett’s rink had a comfortable lead, 14-6 at 14 ends, only to find themselves 16-16 on 20 ends and then played a not very good 21st end. Should also have done better!
Ann Munro’s team were 10-10 at 11 ends, never went ahead but hung on grimly. Scoring 3 shots on the 20th end put themselves level 16-16 but again success on the final end eluded them.
A frustrating but enjoyable afternoon.
Unfortunately we only managed to take 5 rinks to Tunbridge Wells, but at least all drivers managed to find their way around the traffic disruption caused by the closure of the A21.
Sevenoaks were well down at tea with only Derrick Rodger’s rink in close contention. Unfortunately however they slipped later but the captain’s rink of John Biles, Les Gritton, Dave Pearce and Richard Purssell recovered well from 5-14 at tea to win by 24-18.
Overall we lost 64-140 but Sevenoaks did pick up their first point for many games. We do still prop up the Kent League.
We have the return fixture at Hollybush on Saturday 14th March – it would be great if we could field 6 rinks and at least start with a level playing field. And we have shown that they are beatable and we are capable of securing revenge! Sign up now.
Well done Sevenoaks ladies.
The Yardstick competition will now take place on Sunday 29th March and
