Our Senior Women celebrate - Dominique reports
SWL meal out
To celebrate the end of the SWL, a few of the club members decided to go down to Al Forno’s in New Malden High Street. Even though there were only 5 of us out of 14 who actually competed that day,it was still a great evening out with a lot of good food!!
As always it was a great mix of club members from Chairman Pat Logan to our emigrating Lana Whatley. The best part of the evening has to be though when SWL team manager Clare Nelson,my lovely mother,took one for team and did 4 out of the 10 shots we were given at the end of meal and then falling off the kerb as we walked home!
Fantastic evening enjoyed by all, and definitely something that both Gillian and myself want to happen more often. If you have never been to Al Forno’s in the High Street,it is definitely worth more than a one visit!! Just don’t make the mistake of ordering a ‘medium’ calzone, which is more like an extra large one! Although it was a valiant effort by Dean Showler-Davis who decided to abandon Basingstoke for the evening and check out the competition for next years BAL division.
Just a final word of thanks to all those who competed in this years SWL;we had some hard competitions with very small turnouts and those who were there did their utmost to ensure the club scored as many points as possible!
