Month End Melee

Month End Melee - April 2022

34 members turned out on a cloudy Monday for the April Month End Melee although before long the clouds had cleared leaving a sunny and surprisingly warm afternoon.

Play got underway and soon finished for Christine W and her partner Ken as they won 13 - 2. A great start. Harry and Tony were only a point behind having won their game 13 - 3. Most of the other scores seemed to be 13 - 8. So at the end of round one Christine W and Ken were in the lead with +11.

On to round 2 and in this round Nev and partner Jan Shepherdson had a great result 13 - 0 launching Nev into the lead at the end of two rounds with a +18. Could it be Nev's day ? Harry and Jim were second and third.

Round 3 and a nervous Nev partnered Paddy against Dave and Tony. Nev and Paddy had a great start to the game soon on 6 with their opponents on 0. Unfortunately this form didn't last and soon it was 7 - 6 to Dave and Tony. However Paddy regained her pointing skills and Nev and Paddy went on to win 13 - 8 giving Nev a final score of 3 wins and +23. Would it be enough. Harry and Jim needed good scores and indeed both won their games but with insufficient points to overtake Nev.

Into the pavilion for a choice of birthday cakes and doughnuts. Thanks to Harry and Rod although I'm pretty certain Cheryl did the baking.

The final scores showed 4 people on 3 wins.

In fourth place was Margaret Hill on +10 sadly not in the top three so only 4 points in total
In third place with +14 was Harry who netted 5 points.
In second place with +15 was Jim who netted 6 points
And in top spot for the first time in years was Nev on +23 netting 7 points.
