Jill Turner, with a massive score of 3,320 points was the individual winner for this new charity event.
The team winner was Mark's Molls with a combined score of 8,960 - Mark Wainwright, Janice Wainwright, Caroline Faulconbridge & Jill Turner.
It was brilliant to raise £1,705 for the Motor Neuorne Disease Association (mnda)... a charity so connected to our hearts right now... and lovely to see so many players of all different standards playing on the evening.
Players scoring 2,000+ points (in no particular order):
Mark Wainwright, Gerri Draysey, Amy Innes, Scilla Carney, Mike Broadway, Barbara Loyo-Mayo, John Warpole, Frances Joseph, Chris Martin, Tom Burley, Judy Taylor, Les Goodenough, Shauna Delaney, Mark Delaney, Carmen Cuadrado, Miriam Woodman, Vicki Hone & Shirley Hamilton.
[ PS: A very special "well done" to total new begineers this year - Shirley Maynard and Shauna Delaney - for scoring over 2,000 points. Also to Mark Delaney - a relatively new begineer - who did really well. ]
