Let us start this CPBC chat with a big thank you to all those involved in making this day a very enjoyable occasion. Thanks go to, in NO particular order;
Vice Captain Becky (organiser), Vice President Keith (I.T engineer), Captain Phil (IVC collector), Anne and Gwynneth (raffle Ladies), Anthea (catering), George and Stacey (bar), Vice President Dave (speeches), Our Lady guests (supporters) and all those fantastic members who took part and played in the usual CPBC manner, that is to compete, be friendly and enjoy the day.
We were lucky with the weather, the day stayed dry, the green played well although it has suffered with all the dry weather. We played in triples, four games of six ends plus semi final and final. By the time the four rounds of six ends had been completed it was just after five o’clock and our food had arrived, a choice between Fish or Sausage accompanied by Ooooh Yesss Chips, that completed the first half of the raffle got underway then back on the green for the semi final, teams were; (K Jefferies, F Mogford, G Mitchell) verses (K Wilkins, A Greenland, G Hubbard), a very close game was to take place arriving at four all at end four, end five produced a one shot lead for A Greenland and team, so, into end six, now this was a nail biter but there has to be a winner and that was, A Greenland, K Wilkins and G Hubbard, congratulations awarded, cup presented and photo taken, back in the club to complete the raffle. The history of the Hardenhuish Cup is that it was presented to CPBC by Mrs D Tinson in memory of her late husband Les, you may have guessed these were Gerry Tinson,s parents. It was a cracking day and we are all proud to be part of CPBC and enjoy supporting its social games, friendly matches, league matches plus all general entertaining nonsense that ensues.
To all our followers, Take care Stay safe and bowl well.
