Friday 13th, unlucky for some but not for our members who enjoyed a fantastic evening of music performed by Tom Powell an accomplished singer/guitarist who captivated his audience and had us all singing and dancing all night long. Among his song list for the night were songs spanning the decades from ‘Mack the Knife’, ‘Mr Bojangles’, hits by Elvis, Buddy Holly right up to Queen, Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith and an amazing rendition of Mika’s ‘Grace Kelly’.

The county leagues under 25’s are doing very well in the Inter County League, sitting top of the table. Played 5 and won all 5. Freddie has played in all 5 games and has been picked to play for the County in the National Under 25’s double rink, this is the first time one of our juniors have been picked to play in this competition. What is very pleasing is that the top players have been asking the Manager for Freddie to be picked for their team.
Well done Freddie,
EASTBOURNE 53 GRATTONS 82
Eastbourne tried some different players and positions this time to try and reverse the Denny Cup result, but they found it just as difficult to master the very fast green at Grattons.
The home rink skipped by Malcolm Goman had some success winning 18-11, but the other home rink skipped by Derek Wells found it more difficult against a good skip losing 14-25.
The away rinks skipped by Mike Taylor and Phil Garrett found the Grattons rinks very hard to find line and weight going down by 26 shots.
The club now needs to concentrate on the Sussex league and maintain our position in Division 1.
Fantastic Xmas Quiz set by our very own quizmaster Steve. ‘Which country has 13 Santa’s?’ Was a question not many of the 25 teams got right! The club was full for an evening of Festive Facts and we all learnt something!
Thank you Steve for creating such brilliant quizzes, thanks too to Chris & Wendy for all the work they do behind the scenes preparing nibbles for the tables, raffle prizes & selling tickets etc and thanks also to Peter & Billy behind the bar and Roger for keeping count of all the scores, quite a job with so many teams especially when 2 of them had the same name
