For the first time this year we had a player win the Saturday Competition for a second time. Melissa won both of her games, as did Marilyn, and they both had a one handicap to be deducted. This took them back to 25 to join Stan, who also had a score of 25. The winner was decided by count back, with Melissa only having 3 points scored against her, while Stan conceded 9 points and Marilyn conceded 11 points. Congratulations to Melissa, who took home the prize kitty.
The LAURIE ANDERSON CUP was also decided on Saturday, with Marilyn getting her name on the trophy. The Laurie Anderson Cup was awarded to the player with the most points, excluding handicaps, over the entire year’s competition. Before Saturday’s games, Marilyn had 166 points and Robert had 165. When teams were drawn, Marilyn and Robert were in opposing teams, with Marilyn and her partner winning the game. Marilyn ended with a final score of 192 and Robert had a score of 170. Well done and congratulations, Marilyn.
Members (we had 18 in Saturday’s competition) in attendance were keen for the competition to continue in 2022, so it is ‘game on’ on Saturday 15 January. Register by 2.55 pm for a 3.00 pm, for 2 x 45 minute doubles games, teams drawn from the bucket. $2/player entry, with the winner taking home the prize pool. All handicaps from 2021 will be scrapped with everyone starting afresh in 2022.
