05/11/22 – Vic Ashby memorial match.
On Saturday, a splendid turnout of 42 members and 3 guests, gathered for the annual, “just another yard”, internal match, in memory of Vic Ashby and the usual social and very noisy afternoon played out, across the 7 rinks of triples, with the overall winners, being the team of Janice Hatcher, Fred Martineau and John Lake. Across all rinks, the good humoured banter, both given and taken, was very noticeable, as all seemed to enjoy the afternoon, (even those who had misdemeanours, but didn’t pay their fine!) and also nice to welcome new members, Sid Kingman and Henry & Pat Longhurst, who had signed up for the match. The pre – match spider, with a twist, managed to completely baffle all concerned, (it doesn’t take much!), but the winners were suitably rewarded for their efforts and in the fruit draw, for each table, these winners were also guaranteed to go home with their vitamin C levels maintained and enhanced, for at least another week. The Club seen to be doing its bit, to look after the elderly! Thanks to Gemma and girls in the kitchen for the lovely post – match meal, to Katie Hilder for bar duties and also to Sue Smith, for the attached, pics of the day.
Kind regards, an ex – Club Captain and Club c
