Stock Matches

Saturday 9th September 2023

The annual matches against Stock club resulted in an excellent win for our ladies but a disappointing loss for the men for the 8th year running.   
A very hot sunny day, though rather slow green, was supported by an excellent buffet in the club house prior to the presentation of the trophies - the lovely glassware (see below) donated by Dawn Hutchison back in our ladies hands, whilst the mens Lifebuoy and strange wooden trophy was only in our clubhouse for the afternoon before returning to Stock.

Thank you club ladies, managed by Sandra Nichols and Penny Kirby, in providing the extensive buffet, with the drinks managed by Jim Collins, and our many helpers and especially mens reserve Steve Nichols   
Many spectators and a great event towards the end of the season, but this time in amazing heat instead of the usual cooler conditions of September.

Ladies Stock Challenge

An overall win, 50-48 - two shots and the trophy.

Rink 1, Michelle Dixon, Sue Farmer, Gill Aggio and skip Lynn Martin, managed to avoid the mining bees but winning only 6 ends resulted in a 13-22 deficit.

Mens Lifebuoy
