A vin d’ honour WAS held at our clubhouse where, over a glass of wine and a light bite we can meet and go through the weekend’s programme followed by the draw. A chance to renew old friendships and meet new competitors. It started at about 6.00pm with refreshments and the briefing at 6. 30pm.
Saturday April 29th
Play started at 9.15 am on Saturday (and 9.30am on Sunday). The competition was “a Snake” and during the day each team played 6 other teams.
Refreshments were on sale throughout the day..
At the end of the day we collated the results into 4 groups. The top quarter to the Main, the second to the Plate, the third to Consolage 1 and those who have not had the best of days to Consolage 2.
Sunday April 30th
With a 9.30am start each team played 3 games within their group and the top 4 teams went on to play for first, second, and equal third. Played in this way it meant all the eliminated teams were able to watch the finals. This was followed by the presentations and celebrated with a glass and some nibbles.
