There where 3 winners on the night in the Mens match - Pat Logan(25.0 coasting) & David Curzon(27.4) over 200,with a very pleasing first outing for Rob Lowe who won the M40 JT at 30.85. Twelve made the trip,with Messrs Curzon,Isetts,Reed,May,Mcdonough & Huntley ever-presents. The latter was most convincingly the highest points scorer by far overall(76).
The Women suffered from numbers,with only 7 all told throughout,so 2nd was a fine collective effort. On the night,Camilla Thrush collected 2 more wins to total 9 from 11 events over the summer,with Joan Trimble(PB at 200 31.2) & Jane Searle also 'maxing'. Camilla again top-scored with 86 points and she,Nicky A & Joan were the 'there-every-times' !
