Easter Egg Melee

A lovely sunny day saw our traditional melee for Easter. When it came to prize giving it was easy but needed to be rapid as it was approaching 25 degrees and chocolate has a melting point of only 30 in a pan and much lower on a piste.

Only 3 players had won all 3 games and Barrie took 3rd, Sandra Beech was 2nd and David 1st by just one point. Everyone who played an a few onlookers took home a Cadbury’s creme egg. Same again next Easter.
