We played at the same pleasant little venue again, because of the hockey festival taking place, and pleasant it certainly was.
We were pleasantly surprised to see Bridie was playing, despite having to be carried in on her sickbed, with drips attached to her arms, but despite all this, she and Paul managed to record one of the best results ever recorded, with 74,65%. Coughing and spluttering, she soldiered on and triumphed!
Seriously, though, well done indeed to you two, it was a great result.
And then the rest of us, with Neels and Vanessa in second place.
Thanks to all of you and keep on playing this great game, as frustrating as it can sometimes be. I look forward to us being back in the new look hall next week and to the long summer days when we’ll be able to open the stacked doors and let the afternoon breezes in.
