win or lose. Thank you all for the very enjoyable Tuesday evenings.

Pam, Carol, Dave and Brian were winning until the 17 end but managed
a draw 16-16 well done.

in winning on both rinks, well done all.

HOME TO CHELMSFORD D 23rd JULY
We played quite well on our rink and even went into the lead at 17 ends,
but playing against Terry Parks as skip was very hard work ( he is such
a great player) and in the end we lost by 2 shots.
The other team never really got to grip with the game and lost by 10 shots
Sheila, Gordon, Deve J and Brian 9 - 19
Carol, Dave O, Dee & Chris 15-17.
AWAY TO HATFIELD PEVEREL 16th JULY
What a totally frustrating evening playing on a very heavy spongy
green, against a skip who could have walked on water.
Carol, Dave, Dee and Chis played well, but the score didn't reflect
it, where we only ever got 1 at a time they scored 4,s and 3,s we lost 9 - 27
Jean, Sheila, Dave and Brian were ahead for 14 ends it then went pear shape
when the opposition scored 3 3,s they lost 15 - 21.
HOME TO WRITTLE 'B' 9th JULY
On a very pleasant friendly evening after leading the whole of the
game we managed to lose on the last end, Alan played his best 2 woods
of the game and was on the jack, Sheila had another near when they
moved the jack and ended up with 5 to win on our rink, the other rink
was on trouble from the beginning not scoring until the 7th end.
Alan, Sheila, Dee & Chris 19 - 22 Jean, Gordon, Dave & Brian 8 - 29.
Better luck next time
AWAY TO SOUTH WOODHAM FERRERS 2nd JULY
We were very surprised to find that all our players adapted to
the artificial surface extremely well and I was thrilled that we took
8 points from the game. It was a lovely friendly evening, finishing with a visit
to the local community centre for a drink and catch up on the football.
Alan, Wyn, Dee & Chris 17 - 16
Jean, Gordon, Pam and Brian 21 - 18
Well done everyone.
AWAY TO LIONMEDE 25th JUNE
On one of the best greens I have seen this very lush grass was
wet and heavy, we played against some very ancient gentlemen who
managed to reach full length jacks most ends, on one rink they played
a 94 yr old man who was his wife's carer, he managed to knock Jean
off the jack every end needless to say we lost on both rinks.
Carol, Dave, Dee & Brian lost 16 - 23
Jean, Sheila, Dave & Pam lost 4 - 36
Maybe better luck next week
HOME TO MALDON 18th JUNE
On yet another wet evening, we met some old friends
from Maldon, although the weather was bad we managed to play
18 ends, we lost on both rinks
Alan, Dave O, Dee & Chris 13 - 17
Jean, Mike F, Gordon & Brian 8 - 25
HOME TO PML TUESDAY 11th JUNE
On yet another very wet evening, we managed to lose to a superior team,
we welcomed Dave Osborn back, the outstanding player on our team
was Chris Garnett who managed to score most of our points.
Carol, Dave, Dee & Chris lost 11 - 20 while on the other team they
stayed on 8 for 6 ends, Alan, Gordon, Dave and Brian lost 13 - 22
AWAY TO CHELMSFORD 'D' TUESDAY 4TH JUNE
On a very wet green we learnt a lesson that you must not be afraid to say
we will take the one we are holding, we had taken just the 1 three times in the game
but I didn't stop Chris bowling his wood and we went down 1 in the 15th end won the
next 2 ends and needed 4 to win in the last end, thought all was not lost when we were
holding 6 but it was not to be, their no 3 played her last wood (the shot of the night) and
went in for shot leaving the score 15 - 12 to them. Well done Alan, Wyn, Dee & Chris.
The other team after 3 ends of not scoring won the next 7 ends making them 10 all then they
got stuck on 10 for 5 ends winning the last 3 but went down 13 - 18.
Well done Jean, Pam, Sheila & Dave
HOME TO HATFIELD PEVEREL
Nice friendly game, with pleasant weather the only fly
in the ointment was a Lady I have know for 25 years Rita Thompson,
on our rink Carol, Alan, Dee and Chris would be holding 3 shots and Rita came in and we went down 4,
right to the end when we needed 3 to win and was holding 3 till Rita bowled and took 2 shots out, we lost by 18-19.
Jean, Gordon, Dave J and Brian G didn't fare so well, and lost by 10 - 14.
AWAY TO WRITTLE 'B'
Our 2nd game started with sunshine and a pleasant evening

to us all evening, but we managed to score a very good 6 points.
Carol, Alan, Dee & Chris lost by 4 shots 10-14
Pam, Sheila, Dave & Brian won 16-8
Well done everyone.
