Banwell off to a Good start




Traditionally the first friendly match is always against Winscombe, and this year was no exception.


The weather was looking decidedly dodgy, so the two Captains made a decision to play the game over 18 ends, which turned out to be a good decision, allowing us to finish the game before the ‘ heavens opened’.


The match was played over 5 rinks, with Banwell winning on 4 of the 5 rinks. Highlights and disasters of the game are as follows:


Rink 2

Alan Shattock and his merry men were going along very nicely and by the 15th end were leading 13 - 11, when out of the blue they dropped a 7. Yes a 7. This left them no time to pull back.


M.Nickson

T.Coleman

M.Turnbull

A Shattock

Lost 16 shots to 18


Rink 3

Phil Villis and his team romped to an easy win only dropping shots on 5 ends


J.Wright

J.Rickerty

H.Woodards

P.Villis

Won 28 shots to 9


Rink 4

Hilary Guckian and his team were struggling and by the 14th end were 10-17 in arrears.

But somebody must have said or done something because they picked up 12 shots on the last 4 ends to win the game.


T.Burnett

C.Coffin

M.Laycock

H.Guckian

Won 22 shots to 17


Rink 5

A convincing win by the President and his team, once again only dropping shots on 5 ends

V. McArdell

D. Williams

L. Pheasant

B.Taylor

Won 19 shots to 8


Rink 6

A very even game but Paul Aldus and his team were always one step ahead to win in the end


T.Byrnes

P.WIlfan

J.Amos

P.Aldus

Won 21 shots to 15


Result Banwell B.C. 106 shots - WInscombe 67 shots


And finally fellow members. Have we done away with the winning rink ‘diddler’ money?

It is not like Phil Villis to turn down good money. Or have I got it wrong once again.....
