Month End Melee
Final Monday Monthly Melee
The penultimate Month End Melee of 2019.
A poor weather forecast deterred many members and only 19 turned out for the November Month end melee.
With Colin away on holiday second placed Jim was hoping for some points to give him a chance of taking this years title. Numbers were drawn and off we went.
The weather was kind for the start of round one. Mild and damp but not raining ..... yet !!
Some almost fannies in this round with most games going 13 4 or 5. At the end of this round three players were in joint first place on +12.
On to round 2.
A lot closer scores in this round but still no fannies.and still the weather held off. At the end of round 2 Rod Green was on +17 with Sue Scholes just behind on +16. Jim was having mixed fortunes with one loss and one win. All to play for in round 3
Rod held his nerve and came out the clear leader at the end of round three. Poor Sue couldn't maintain her form and let second place slip to Sue Metcalfe. With two wins and +10 points Michael Tan and Jim were in joint 3rd place.
The points went as follows. Rod had 3 wins and +28 and gained 7 points. Sue Metcalfe had 3 wins and +16 and gained 6 points. Jim and Michael had 2 wins and +10 and gained 4 points each

Jim now has a clear lead over Colin but could still be caught. Next months melee should be exciting. Still in a firm third place is Christine Whitehead,
Jackie had brought some knitted pixie hats to sell but Harry thought they'd make excellent boule warmers for inclement weather.
See what you think.
