The Saturday Leagues as well as the Wednesday League are now behind us for 2016 and will pick up again in mid-January 2017. Our 3rd Division team won a close match on Saturday but our 6th Division guys lost as did the Pennant side. Both our Wednesday sides managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory yesterday with our one team losing on the last end. Thanks again to Fiona for some really yummy snacks after the day’s play.
The 3rd Division team has moved up to 8th out of 12 but the points difference between the team lying 7th and that lying 11th is only 2.5 so things are very tight with victories becoming increasingly important.
Cavin Cornelius’s singles tournament, happily known as Cavin’s Canary, will be played on Saturday and Sunday 7/8 January 2017. Entries cost R300 and may be paid to either Cavin or David the barman. This will be the 21st running of this tournament which promises to be a more special event than usual. Do try to enter as it gives you the opportunity to play against some of Gauteng’s real hotshots .
Richard Oosthuisen is back from a well earned break and will be putting some additional work and TLC into the Pirates green, especially with the Canary in mind.
