OK, it was a little of a shambles at first, with your hard working Chairman breaking out into a sweat on what was a coldish night, because of a little thing like a lack of cards to play!
No matter, we found Thursday’s boards in the cupboard, which were still to be made for Thursday, and we went back in time to a place where we still used to actually shuffle and deal. It was fun! And then the game was on!
We, The Titans, had a very good session against The Four Broke Girls in the first half, leading by a massive margin. Then they regrouped in the second half, but still ended up on the wrong side by 5 against 15 Victory points. So well done and all that to us.
The clash between The Big Squeeze and The Crazy Dark Fillies(What a name!) was very close in the first half, with nothing in it. Then the Big Squeeze came back and reclaimed some ground and finished winners by a modest margin, but behind on handicap.
The Northern Lights clashed with The League of Nations and I am not privy to all the salacious details of what went on, but suffice it to say that the Northern Lights came out winners by a margin of 15 to 5 Victory Points. After handicap, they were still ahead by 11 to 9.
So where does this leave us at this stage of our 5 month long competition?
Go to the attached Excel spreadsheet and look for yourself.
See most of you tomorrow.
By the way, someone who will remain unnamed asked whether we’ll be playing tomorrow, because it’s a holiday. My reply was ” Look around the room and tell me how many of us are not on permanent holiday”
Enough said, that’s it for now, as always.
Your somewhat friendly and cheerful chairman,
“Come Troy, let’s go for a walkies”
