The outdoor season finished on a wet note but with an excellent game at home to our friends from Byfield.

Thanks to Nigel, Ron and Eric, my outdoor season finished on a high, thanks again lads.

I have had great pleasure in my role as Press Officer for the club and I also managed to please Steve at the BG. 

From the Press point of view, I have been able to report on great success for the club in both the County and at Leamington. It is great when a plan comes together.


Back to Sunday's game which was brought to a sudden halt, as we all abandoned ship when the Heaven's opened with a sudden deluge. The rinks were shared two apiece, with Byfield edging the game by one shot, 56-55. In the spirit of the game we loaned June and John Bone along with recent new boy Chris to our visitors to complete their line-up. You could say that the Bone's made a major contribution on the two rinks that went in Byfield's favour. John went in at lead, helping his new found team mates to a 17-8 win over Bob, Jenny, Andy and Terry, whilst June used her local knowledge to help her adopted rink go even better, with a 18-7 victory against Jim, Mo, Sue and Pete.


Thanks to the excellent trio around me, who covered my mistakes as we romped to a 21-9 win, and finally our captain Keith who has worked hard throughout the season in getting teams out and who showed his skipping prowess as, with help from Eloise, Melody and Graham he led his rink to a 19-12 success.


If only we had given the opposition someone else instead of the Bone duo!


That's it for the outdoors, next month we will be back indoors, where I will try to avoid a wrong bias and the potential hazard of my wood ending up in the swimming pool.


I will put my pen to paper again in the spring.
