Final of the Mixed Singles Competition.

Well we made it. We are actually playing the final match of our in house competition to find the clubs' top player for 2016.
A small group of hardy supporters gathered at the edge of rink 4 to witness the game being played between last years champion; John Townsend and another fine player Peter Hayes.
Being a cold Autumnal day, Liz Brennan, with a brilliant piece of forethought; brought in a flask of hot mulled wine, which was evenly distributed about the brave but cold onlookers including Geoff Palmer; our umpire, but making sure that the players did not receive any – in case of any future dope fixing enquiries.

The match itself began and immediately John took control of the game, opening up the scoring with a lead of some nine points. Peter had been playing a fine game holding winning shots, only for John to come in with his last wood to claim the points.
John didn't have it all his own way and Peter managed to pull back the difference in the scoreline, but unfortunately for him he was unable to catch up with John and the match ended 16 – 12 in favour of the reigning champ. A most competitive game played by both participants in a well humoured and friendly manner.

We are now in the situation that we are able to present all of the competition winners with their shields at our Christmas lunch in two weeks time – a marked difference from last year!
