NOT LONG NOW

Truly incredible! Never has the saying "many hands make light work" been so true. A fantastic turnout of 14 club members including 3 from the Amigos (many thanks Ron, Steve and Alan) ensured all today's tasks were done by 10.30am! Old carpet unstitched, new carpet rolled into place, old carpet rolled up and underlay hoovering started. So lucky with the weather. High cloud stopping the heat getting through until we had just about finished.

Well done everyone! Only problem was some had to wrestle with the decision whether to drink alcohol before 11am. The Clubs decision to pay for the first round probably helped those in difficulty!

COME ON EL CID - LETS KEEP THIS AMAZING YEAR GOING

!!  VCL Champions !!

Friday 24th May

Valencian Champions league final match! Today we welcomed BBC to El Cid. As expected they didn't make things easy for us! Mercifully both our singles players settled the nerves by winning their games and getting our overall league points to an unbeatable position! Well done Jean McLaughlin with a 21/8 win! That makes it 5 out of 5 wins for her. Just incredible! This time Alan Phillips came away with 21/19 win. He did his best to get us worried though having been 20/10 up after 14 ends!In the Trips Paul Trunchion, Hazel Brown and Yvonne Briden won 22/8. No luck in the Pairs today with BBC taking the win 31/6. Now things get interesting. It was looking like the best result for El Cid would be a 6/6 draw. However the Rinks team of Tony Spike, Richard Warrillow, Stewart Beattie and Clive Scott went into the last end 15/13 down but picked up a 3 to win their game! These shots combined with the 8 shots picked up in the last 3 ends of the trips saw El Cid take the extra 2 points for overall points 86/81! So El Cid win 10/2 and win the Valencian Champions League!! What a year for El Cid!
