Christmas Melee 2012

Sunday, December 16th 2012

There were 24 playing on a pleasant morning although some of the terrains were rather boggy as a result of all the rain! After a breakfast of Lyn’s bacon rolls, tea/coffee, and Chris Barron’s mince pies, the melee was drawn with four 30 minute rounds. After 3 rounds only Dave and Lyn had won all of their games. Lyn could not maintain her great form of the first 3 games, suffered a heavy defeat and sadly dropped down to 7th place. Another 5 players finished on 3 wins but Dave ended with a convincing win to retain the cup.  

After drinks in the Burridge Club, it was off to the Purbani for a buffet lunch with 29 of us eating. Alan presented Dave with the Cook’s Christmas Cup and announced that Tim Greeves (sadly absent) was the winner of the Cobbett’s Curry Cup for the best new player.
