Ducks and Drakes on Again in 2020!

The dull and overcast conditions yesterday, Sunday 27 September, didn’t deter the ducks who were determined to beat the drakes in the annual battle of the sexes.
Teams took to A & B green and the game was on!
Although there is always friendly rivalry, both ducks and drakes were after the title with gusto.
There were some very close games, but eventually the drakes took home the trophy, 6 rinks to 1.
Drakes: (128 pts)
1st – Team Bert Cruickshank.
2nd -Team Nigel Tulett.
Ducks: (77 pts)
1st – Team Angela Sharpe
2nd -Team Heather Golding.
Trish Klisc and Ray Roper did a great job of organising the event. Well done guys!
Ladies captain Angie Sharp made a great speech and and thanked all competitors who entered.
Unfortunately due to COVID-19 restrictions the afternoon tea was a little unusual, but went well with a beer or two!
(John Renton was heard to say he must remember to buy some shares in Smith’s)
The camaraderie was still as high as ever as both sides settled in to celebrate or commiserate!
Teena behind the bar did a great job of looking after everyone. Thanks Teena!
Thanks also to John Renton who took some shots after the game. Most appreciated John.
Never mind ladies – there is always next year!
