Fun Day & BBQ 2017

Bank Holiday Monday saw the warmest day of the year so far. Bright sunshine with temperatures in the sun of 34 degrees plus all day.

54 players turned up, and we had to make up two pistes behind the cricket clubhouse to accommodate everyone.

At lunchtime we had a BBQ, and while this was going on a couple of side competitions took place.

The first one was a ‘Shooting Competition’ in which entrants had to try and shoot a boule at 6 metres for 1 point, 8 metres for 2 ponts or 10 metres for 3 points. This may sound easy, but many walked away have scored zero points. Four people managed to score 6 points from 3 tries, so had a shoot out to decide the winner.BBQ2017 =Shooting contest winner IainCarol presents £25.50 to Iain, the winner of the shooting contest.

We then had a bucket with some boule in it. all the boule could not be seen, and people had to guess the weight of the bucket.Elaine-Guess the weight Winner

Elaine was the winner, with an almost spot on guess of 8.9Kg. Carol presented Elaine with £5.25 prize money.

The days competition was eventually won by Steve & Wayne.
