Carol Morton, Lenham Ladies Captain, opened proceedings by welcoming everyone (picture
below) and got the day off to a positive start.
We commenced with a spider which was won by Daphne Ellinor from Whitstable, she seemed
particularly pleased with her prize of a litre bottle of Croft Sherry.
The teams played two games in the morning followed by lunch (beautifully prepared
and served by our ladies under the supervision of Pam Cuckow), and a further two
games in the afternoon, each game lasting 1 hour 15 minutes, with a 30 minute break
between games. Tea/coffee and cakes were available throughout the day - a big thank
you to all the ladies that provided the cakes.
Carol was on hand to announce the result and present the prizes.
The overall winners were Ditton by one point from Whitstable who were second, with
Bearsted “B” a close third; our congratulations to them all.
Second Place - Whitstable
Third Place - Bearsted ‘B’
A Few Words From Our Chairman ...
What a very successful day! I must give thanks to all those who helped make the
day what it was - with special thanks to Pam Cuckow, Lyn Fuller, Linda Warner and
Jill Clifton who put in many, many hours and a lot of hard work to get the tournament
going and worked particularly hard on the day; without their efforts the tournament
would not have got off the ground. Well done.
Thanks to Carol for opening and closing the day and thanks to Dick Comport and Dave
Hopkins for preparing the green.
We had a raffle which was extremely well supported - mind you, with 30+ prizes available
this wasn’t too surprising! Our thanks to everyone who donated prizes; greatly appreciated.
I can’t finish without mentioning Brian Fuller, John Cuckow and Doug Warner who alongside
yours truly provided the muscle in rearranging the clubhouse furniture and decorating
the green surround. Doug also assisted me in organising the day’s proceedings and
John and Brian manned the bar. A huge thank you.
Given the extremely positive feedback we have received, it’s well on the cards that
we will repeat the competition next year.
