We had a great afternoon of friendly rivalry ‘on the piste’ this New Year’s Day 2019. There was a good turn out of players and even a smattering of spectators to be seen huddling around the outdoor heater.
it was cold, but the rain held off so we downed a cup of warming mulled wine and set to playing boules. Mike did an excellent job on the BBQ, helping to keep us all well fed as we went along. Then there was soup and yet more mulled wine to warm us up in the pavilion at half-time.
After our social break, it was back to the job of playing the finals and with much determination (and quite a bit of hand signalling) Shoscombe pulled ahead .
THE FINAL RESULT – with the assistance of Wellow Boules very own ‘Dead-eyed Debbie’ out on loan to them, Shoscombe won the knockout tournament and a team from Wellow were well deserving runners-up.
Thank you to all that turned up, played, watched and made it a fun and friendly event. And, above that….for all your generosity in helping us to raise a £120 donation for the Wellow Children’s Play Park Appeal.
