Win for Shalford.
Prematch preparations were nightmarish with problems in hall booking, sufficient couples from each club, traffic in Wonersh and our benefactor, chair and organiser unable to attend. In addition the actual trophy was nowhere to be seen. The only redeeming feature appeared to be a table groaning under a mountain of delicious cakes and goodies of all kinds.
The scoring system chosen was based on match points.
Shalford had put up a strong team but they were the under dogs having been beaten last year. A good natured fight ensued and Shalford came out victorious. They now look forward to Liz recovering and able to present the trophy named after her.
Our opponents from Ewhurst were charming and sociable and worthy opponents.
We all had a very entertaining, fun afternoon and what a tea! Many thanks to all who overcame the difficulties and made this possible.
