Here we are!
Our turn to host Winter 'VETS' so we all played at Wallingford on the Boulodrome hosting people from Winnersh, Marlow, Ickenham, West Drayton, Tilehurst followed by lunch, which we brought ourselves, in the Pavilion. Dave opened the bar for us so we had liquid refreshments to go with our lunch. Thanks for coming chaps and chappesses.
Here we are!
We were due to meet at Winnersh on the 11 December but as Christmas is approaching we can't get access to the hall for that day, so Wallingford whose date is 25th December – Christmas Day(!) will host the 11th December and I will provide lunch for the players – a very simple lunch, but I hope very tasty. Everyone is to wear something Christmassy to add to the fun. I hope to post a picture next time we meet. Got to get through Winter Pairs first on the 7 December.
Thursday saw us playing Winter 'VETS' in Winnersh again, and we had a lovely day with delicious lunch in the British Legion Hall, prepared by Anne and her helpers – Thank you. Look forward to seeing you on the 27th November at our place. No picture this time - forgot! In fact, we had a lovely time, but it was rather damp and cold ....
Time has just gone flying by and I realised that I have not done a blog! So here it is catching up again.
2nd November – Winter Pairs 2nd round played at various locations in the Thames Valley – Wallingford was not one this time, and Burnham pistes were used instead of WWW at Winnersh because the hall could not be opened before 12.00 so it was decided to change to venue to be sure to have access to facilities.

League 1 at Aborfield Brisish Legion
1 Bozos The Hopefuls 2
0 M&M's v The Smiths 3
2 White Light v Bruv & Sister 1
