Christmas Melee 2018

Sunday, December 16th 2018

After the customary bacon rolls and mince pies, the melee was due to start at 11am. Wiith heavy rain falling it did not look promising but the black clouds eventually cleared away allowing a start to be made. There was a reasonable turn out of 17 players given the wet start to the day and the absence of several regulars at the Southampton match. After 3 rounds there were still 4 players unbeaten, Ali, Mike, Chris and Rod. A 13-4 win in the 4th round saw Ali retain the cup she had won in 2017, It was a close run thing with Ali just ahead of Chris and Rod who both also had big wins in the last round.

After a drink and some nibbles there was then a pause until we reassembled at 5:30pm at the Purbani, Hedge End along with those who had been at the Saiints match.
