Christmas Melee 2009

Sunday, December 13th 2009

Compared to the -7 degrees last year, it was a barmy +5 at the start of play this year. There was a short shower as games started, and a lovely rainbow, but most games were played in the dry. There were initially 21 players but Steve Love had to withdraw after two rounds to man the bar! The first 2 rounds were 35 minutes each then, after a short break for tea and coffee, there were two more 30 minute rounds. At the end four players had won all four games.

Leading Results

Dave Stubbs            4 wins          +28

Callum Lombard      4 wins          +24

Pete Tomlin             4 wins          +22   

Lyn Porter                4 wins          +17 

After the competition we departed to the Pilgrim House Restaurant in Southampton where 32 of us enjoyed a most excellent Chinese buffet. Alan presented Dave with the Cook’s Christmas Cup for winning the melee and Pete the Cobbett’s Curry Cup for the highest placed new player.
