On Sunday 18th February we played at Wentworth Falls. Our Seniors Team recorded its first win of the season, over Oberon, 3-2. A bad email from the Captain told players that the starting time was 11.00am instead of the correct 10.00am. So, one player turned up at the wrong time (it was not his fault) and the team was reduced to four players. Jack Walden (5/4), Nat Foster (2/1) and Andrew Lawson (5/3) were our victors.
Our Masters Team remain undefeated. They overcame Oberon 3.5 to 2.5. Barry Simpson (1 up) Mark Allen (3/1) and Michael Mole (7/6) all won, with Alistair Campbell adding the vital half point. The Kortum Shield team also won, 2.5 to 0.5 over Leura. Phil Binskin and Bob Montgomery maintained their winning run, Tristan Schwartz and Brian Tulloch recorded their maiden victory, while Garry Way and Adam Preen remained undefeated after squeezing out a draw. The scene is set for an exciting final round at Leura next Sunday, when the final placings of the round-robin will be determined. On Saturday 24th we hold a fundraising Gala Weekend organised by Ken Scully.
