El Valle was the venue for the latest Plaza event which was played whilst supporting the very worthwhile charity ‘The British Legion’ organised by Mick The Grip.

The day raised 400 euros and thanks go to all members and guests who played and donated along the way.

On to the results starting with nearest the pins sponsored by The Ale House going  to Graham Atchison, Russell Bailey, Phil Sully, Bob Price and Warren Harris.

The 2’s pot proved to be hard to win with only 3 successes Bob Price, Dave Shields and Tony Sims…..well done Guys.

Our best lady of the day was Liz Thornton who collected her prize having scored 29pts.

Trying to convince everyone he had a bad back was Colin Wilson’s excuse for being this events most challenged player with a measly 19pts but he received no sympathy and got a rousing reception collecting his reward!!!!

Our Guest produced some of the best scores of the day with hard working Mick The Grip third on 27 pts, Steve Hitcham on his last guest card second with 35pts and the comfortable winner and best score of the day Dave Shields with 37 pts.

In Silver division Dean Tracy was third with 29 pts second saw Russell Bailey on 31 pts and receiving a rapturous reception was the ever popular Gordy with a fantastic 36pts in first spot.

On to Gold division the scoring appeared a little more challenging with Robert McDowell third with 31pts, Callam Hitcham second with 32pts just losing out to winner Andy Shaw with 33pts.

Well done to everybody and once again thanks to all who donated to our chosen charity the British Legion…the biggest winner on the day.
