Month End Melee

Month End Melee - September 27th 2021

The weather on the morning of the Melee was nothing short of diabolical. Heavy rain and wind so the prospect for play in the afternoon was not good ...... however ....

23 members gathered in the hope that we could get at least some play in before the heavens opened and the rain held off for the start of the first game.

Lots of very close fought games in this first round and no fannies. Jim C and Dave B ended the round in front with +10 with three other players a couple of points behind.

Round 2 and still no rain despite the forecast saying 70% chance of a shower. Again some very close games and again no fannies and at the end of this round Jim was still in front on +12 but joining him was Nev also on +12. Jan Shepherdson was a close third on +11.

All to play for in round three and still no rain !! Incredibly every score in this last round was either 9-13 or 13-9 or 11-13 or 13-11. With several players on two wins the competition could have gone a number of ways and we had to wait for the very last game on the terrains to finish before the eventual winner could be declared.

In joint third place with 2 wins and +10 were round two leaders Jim and Nev. Both score 4 points for the month.
In second place with 2 wins and +11 was Dave Boyne who gets 5 points this month
And in first place and the only player to score 3 wins with +11 is Steve Sharpe who receives 7 points for the month. Well done Steve
