September 23rd - President verses Chairman
All too soon the final social event of the year was played this Saturday. It was of course the President Team verses the Chairmans Team. With the 2 protagonists squaring up to each other before the match began, it was bound to be an intensive affair. We watched the scores going back and forth for the 18 ends, but I have to report that our Chairman won the laurels. There was not much in it with both teams winning 2 rinks, but with the Chairman's team scoring 6 more points than the President's, the result was not in doubt. It was a very enjoyable game with wine before the match , and after the match delicious cakes (supplied by a number of members). The President graciously accepted defeat, and was congratulated by the Chairman for being such a gentleman. The match would not have been possible without the input of many people, but I would like to highlight the Green itself. It looks a picture, and played as well as any we have played on this season. Congratulations to Colin F and his team for all the work done to give us such a great facility.

Our final match of the year was played against Spartan and Lakeside. The weather was fine, the green magnificent, and the company great. Once again, although we lost on 2 rinks, we had an outstanding win against one the best clubs we play. Final result was Fairlight 63 and Spartan and Lakeside 52. That's the last match report until next year, so have a good winter, but do keep looking at the web site.
