Mexted Cup

I wondered if the Mexted Cup would have been played today. The wind in Levin was strong for much of the day but the news has come through that our team won the cup. Congratulations. I have just received an email from Ken about the day which gives a clear outline on how the day went: Good news from Paekakariki …

Haggis Gala

Our annual event, the Haggis Gala took place today, a full green, but plenty of room for more teams to enjoy the challenge of the day and attempt to take out the top prize. The day takes a lot of organising and all those who helped in one way or another, we thank them. Without their assistance, the day would …

After Rain – Business House

There had been overnight rain and to most of us, we thought that the greens would not be available for Business House last night. I was quite surprised to see no sign of water on the cotula green and only a little on the Dales surface. When I arrived at about 5.30pm, some players were already loosening up for the …

Sunshine

This really is just a piece to test our something I found out today regarding getting this blog into the web site. It was a lovely afternoon for our roll-up and two of our members got themselves organised, as can be seen in the photo. I think they were calling for long ends all the time so that they could …

Two Consecutive Kisses

It was the last end, the score was very close, when up stepped Colin. He must have known it was time for him to shine and that is exactly what he did. A long end but no problem getting up to the head (this time) and he drew right to the Jack, not just once but twice. He really earned …

How Are You Going?

At lunch time yesterday at the Mixed Triples Gala at our club, it seemed that a common question around where I was sitting was ‘How are you going’, and the common answer was ‘one and one’.  Strange, as usually there is sat least one team with two wins after the morning’s play. Perhaps they were sitting well away from our …
