Di Medhurst, President
Put to Bed!The last County friendly of the season wasn’t so friendly for Warwickshire as they failed to retain their winning streak when they played at Great Barford BC and let Bedfordshire win 119-106.
Highest winning rink went to Sigrid Thomas (Rugby Thornfield) with Janet Pooler (Stoke), Chris Ward (Lillington) and Liz Westell (Welford) whose start was helped by a 5 shot win on the third end but is spite of a couple of 3 shot scores against them, they were not going to be deterred and went on to win 26-10.
Maureen Tims (Whitnash) with Margaret Boldy (Avon), Antoinette Lambert (Ambleside) and Di Wilkinson (Stoke) also set off well and despite losing two 5 shot scores they were determined not to be beaten and finished well ahead 27-16.
Sadly the rest of the story wasn’t so bright although Pat Moore (Three Spires) with Sharon Keal (Snitterfield), Di Medhurst and Helen Harris (Stoke) started well and were fairly evenly matched as they pulled back over the last few ends to lose by just two shots, 19-21.
Elaine Taylor (Stoke) with Margaret Andrew (Entaco), Pat Lowe (Rugby Thornfield) and Di Thurlbeck (Lillington) were level pegging 5 all at 8 ends but 5 shots for their opponents on the 15th end sealed it and they weren’t able to fight back losing 9-21.
Skips Jenny Corn and Sue Hornsby were both unable to keep their opponents at bay and each finished 13 shots adrift.
After an excellent meal, County President, Di Medhurst, was delighted to be able to present a Colt Badge to Sharon Keal.
