3C Knockout WINNERS!!

3 Counties Winter Knockout Final, 11th March, 2017 – The picture says it all.  We won!  Fantastic.  What a team.  I did admit in the clubhouse afterwards that I had had my doubts, once Cricket St. Thomas was agreed as the venue: it is not an easy course in winter conditions, but luckily, today, the wind was not too much of a factor.  The score was 1 to Folke, (won on the 19th) and 4 to Long Sutton.

The team on the day consisted of Tim and Caroline, Sarah and Steve, Angela and Dave, myself with Nigel and last but not least, John Pearson and Sean.

That was our last winter match, now we turn to the Summer League.  6 Pairs will be needed to play 4BBB matchplay.  Match dates for your diary.  Please sign the sheets in the corridor. 

All welcome.

Final round of 3 Counties Winter Salva

Final round of 3 Counties Winter Salva – I am going to set the scene (and make my excuses).  We had a glorious start for the final round at Folke on Saturday, 4th October...weatherwise that is.  You can see how keen and relaxed Caroline and Angela were in the sunshine before teeing off.  I said, ‘We have played this in snow in March before now’ and Caroline said, ‘It’s not going to snow today’, but what was in store for us?…icy cold rainstorms sweeping across the course, at least a two club wind as the storm swept through and greens summer fast, like silk! (a credit to the lone greenkeeper, Andy), but how do we play on them?  I was so cold I could not feel my fingers, despite a heat pack in each pocket and one up each sleeve.  One minute we had clubbed up short in the wind and the next our ball was leaping with gay abandon to freedom, the other side of the green!   

Excuses made – Folke were in total control, played out of their skins and galloped further ahead in the lead.  We started second, 17 points behind them and finished 69 points behind!  Luckily at the start of the round we had a good lead ahead of Wincanton and Cannington and managed to retain second place, Wincanton and Cannington staying third and fourth.

Thanks to the whole team – Nigel, Dave, Angela, Caroline, John Pearson, Valerie and John, Sean and Tim.  Special thanks to Denise Tomblin who felt unwell the whole way round but carried on and our star of the day, Steve Uzzell, who played like a Folke man and brought in our highest score, 31 points!  Thank you to everyone else who contributed over the four rounds to our Runners Up result...John Blackwell, Ray, Sandra Ford, Franco, John Jeanes and Steve Cousins.  We certainly had some fun along the way.
