QUIZ & CHILLI EVENING
Winning team Who Nose
BIG C CHARITY PAIRS
Congratulations to all those who took part and made the Quiz & Chilli evening a very competitive event, with the scores very close between the first 5 teams.
The overall winners were Who Nose, captained by Alan Crabtree, with Sue Crabtree, John Aston and Celia Young completing the team. In second place just 2 points behind were No Idea, captained by Robert Cleaver.
Winners Michael Neal & Dan Cooper
Fifteen pairs contested this tournament this year, a little down on last year's record turnout. Nevertheless a good afternoon's competition took place, with Michael Neal and Daniel Cooper from Suffolk the eventual winners, with Ashley and Owen Sayer in 2nd place.
The event made £202 for Big C.

PRE -SEASON TOURNAMENT
Action from the Pre-season tournament

ONGOING SUMMER EVENTS
CLUB LADIES & GENTS SINGLES CHAMPIONSHIP
All the scorecards for the Group stages of this tournament have now been distributed, so hopefully you will all be in process of arranging your individual group games. Indeed we've seen a number of games already taking place this week at the terrain, so some competitors are clearly keen to get their Group games under way! Please return your scorecards to the Secretary as soon as your group games are completed.
We have now completed 4 weeks of the Summer Melee, with 29 competitors already in the running. The first standings table will be published towards the end of May when we have a few people with the required minimum 6 games completed to qualify in the reckoning. Come and join in on any Wednesday Club Night to take part. The Melee game is played at 8pm.
