The weather forecast was grim, but we were lucky in that the light rain and breeze in the morning had abated by the time we sat down for a late lunch 0-2 down, John and Nick’s singles being pegged down with John on rover and rover and Nick (to play) for peg and 5 with a rush to 5 with another ball NE of 6. The doubles was over relatively quickly and the top singles began before lunch. George had chances against Andrew, who had one good break and stayed ahead.

The singles round was much closer with three of the games finishing with single-figure scores, but when Bryan lost Woking had a winning 4-0 lead. John pulled one back but George eventually lost -2. The pegged down game was abandoned.

Thanks to David for lunch, and also for assisting John and George when making his debut on the mower on Monday afternoon.
