The men’s Sunday competition was the Mason Shield which at this stage was a 4BBB, the top 16 pairs then go on to the knockout stages. It was a fine sunny morning and 26 teams turned out to enjoy the conditions. Four of the top 5 teams turned in a score of 45 points but the winners with 47 points were Terry Cleal(19) and Grant Gerrard(14). Runners up on count back were Pat Hart(13) and Doug Miners(13) with 45 points. In third place on count-back was the team of Dave Franks(9) and Stuart Gay(23) also with 45 points.
What should have been the first round of the veteran’s Winter Shield competition on Thursday had to be postponed due to the foggy conditions.

Tuesday saw the ladies playing our annual Texas Scramble raising money for Children in Need. After the early morning mist dissipated the sun shone through and a good time was enjoyed by all.
The winning team with a score of 80.3 were Liz Thompson, Roseanne Bonfield and Wendy Newton. As a section we sent a donation to BBC’s Children in Need a very worthwhile cause.
