Final Match

The internet went to sleep last night and didn’t wake up again so I couldn’t post about our last match, read anything new that had come in, or respond to comments as I usually do before retiring for the night.

Anyway, it was a good night all round and the opposition made a point of saying how they liked to play us as we were always such good fun, which really pleased the girls .
We won 8 points to 4, making a total of four wins out of 14 games.
Last night’s visitors are just above us, so bottom place is between the two of us as I don’t know what the point margin is.

I won my singles game (have won 13 of 14 played), but lost the pairs. Next season if we have an extra team member I will probably drop myself for the pairs matches as I don’t seem to do very well with those. We’ll see how things pan out with the Summer League as it’s mixed pairs and then ladies and gents with 701 and 1001 down respectively. Apparently they are going to abide by the ‘bust rule’, something I’m familiar with from years ago. It might make things easier.

It’s strange how leagues vary. I’ve played 301 down, double in, double out, 501 down straight in double out, both as single games or best of three. Teams were of 7, but this time we are 6, though another has 8 where you pay 4 games of pairs (best of three), 2 of 4s (single match) and then 1 of 8 from 1001.

Still, I’m looking forward to the Summer and will continue to keep my eye in at home.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
