Mixed Texas Scramble Competition with
Heydon Ladies Wed 17th May 2023
Today the Ladies and the Venerable’s came together to compete in a mixed Texas Scrabble competition.
We managed to turn out 10 teams of four which were organised with a view to establishing the best level playing field possible based on handicaps, not an easy task which was undertaken by Richard Gardener and our appreciation goes to him.
The weather was kind to us and it can be said, the playing conditions on our improving course were near perfect.
Thanks goes to Mrs Aktar for organising the buffet which everyone enjoyed. Thanks also to Marilyn Symons and Steve Board for handling the food money.
I know our photographer for the day Dave Sephton will knock them into shape on our website, hopefully showing everyone’s best side.

3rd place with 70.1 points were:-
Dave Sephton, Cyril Harris, Deb Bowes, Stella Bore.
2nd place with 69.4 points were:-
