Month End Melee
Month End Melee - 28 October 2019
38 members turned out on a fine but cold Monday afternoon for the October Month End Melee plus 3 prospective new members who unfortunately couldn't join in the Month end melee as they hadn't officially joined the club yet. Undeterred by this fact they stayed on to practice in the only space available - the car park ! All other terrains being occupied by members.
Numbers were drawn and the competition got under way at almost bang on 1 o'clock - marvelous !
There were no quick games in this round with quite a number going to 13 - 9 and more so no fannies yet. Nev and Liz stormed into a 9 - 0 lead against Sue S and Paddy. Unfortunately Nev and Liz must have taken pity on them as Sue and Paddy soon reeled them in to set up an exciting end to the game with Nev and Liz running out eventual winners.
At the end of this round Robin and Dave Karle were out in front by 1 point.
On to round 2
This time there was a quick game as Irene and Christine K rolled over to let Ann C and Chris Hopkins Fanny them in quick time - oh dear. At the end of this round Patricia C was out in front on 2 wins and +14 with Chris Hopkins close behind on 2 wins and +13.
All to play for in round 3 with quite a number of players on 2 wins. No fannies in this final round but plenty of excitement and close scores to set hearts racing. Nev and Viv had a really hard fought game against Ken and Michael with a score of 12 all at the final end. Michael and Ken had 4 boules to get within 2 feet of the coche to win. Ken's last boule took a bad bounce and was nowhere near. Up stepped Michael whose first boule pulled left and short, second boule short, third boule 4 inches from the coche to take the end and the game. Well done gents.
At the end of the third game the results were scrutinized and we had a result.
In third place with three wins and +13 was Kevin who scores 5 points and in joint first place with three wins and +18 were Chris Hopkins and Liz Ineson each netting 7 points.
