The carpark at PRGC is now renovated with new gravel laid.
The winners of the Chiltern Breakfast League (CBL) for 2018 are Three Locks who have managed to secure their first win in their first season in the league so a significant achievement. Three Locks enjoyed a highly successful league campaign losing only two matches out of the ten played. Needless to say one of those losses was at Princes Risborough who of course won every home match in 2018. Three locks went on to beat Halzemere in the semi final and then Aldwickbury Park in the final.
The end of season gala took place at Richings Park yesterday, Sunday 21st October, where the 17 league clubs all came together to compete for the CBL Challenge Cup. Winners on the day were Aldwickbury Park and Princes Risborough came a highly respectable fifth overall. Neil Martin playing as the single secured 31 points whilst the pairs groups of Barry Woledge and Bob Darvill (42 points), Steve Smith and Dave MacKenzie (40 points) and Dean Herritty and John Verrall (37 points) added handsomely to the team total. No individual winners this year but a great team performance.
The next event is on Saturday 27th October with the first round of the CBL winter knock out. As one competition ends another begins so onwards and upwards.
The final board competition of the season saw a field of 22 players compete over two testing days last Friday 12 and Saturday 13 October. The weather on both days was to say the least “entertaining” with high winds and a lot of rain. Being an “outdoors man” was clearly a bonus to Stewart Ford who ran out the winner with an outstanding 37 points. This result is all the more creditable as Stewart played early on Saturday and had to contend with the unexpected monsoon that blew in and took a number players out of contention, ED. Steve Smith delivered a near faultless 36 points playing off a handicap of 5 to finish as runner up, with Vice Captain John Verrall third on 35 points. Mention should also be made of Leo West, a junior member who played in his first board competition and came in with a highly creditable 24 points, and Matt Enfield also making his debut in board competitions. These are two players of the future.
Well done to all who played.
