BUSY WEEKEND FOR THICKET MEMBERS
With County Competitions in full swing and 2 friendly fixtures over the weekend members were kept very busy either supporting or playing.
On a horrible wet Friday Bridget Thrift and Pam Pulsford went to Maidenhead Town to play their County pairs but were up against a tough pair from Town and after Pam suffered a heavy fall they lost momentum and lost their game. Maggie Scrace and Sue Goodchild were at home to Wokingham and the weather had improved slightly. Sue and Maggie won their game and now play tonight Monday 7th June against a pair from Bracknell whilst our other ladies Pairs of Jenny Bosley and Nicola Jones are playing Kim Barao and Angie Isaac from Desborough both games at Maidenhead Thicket.
Ross Burton had a narrow defeat in his first every unbadged singles
On Saturday the club had a friendly away to Burnham and Burnham reaped the rewards from their home game and were the winners on a very heavy green . Also on Saturday Sheila Gwilliam was playing her County Wood against Jan Mayne from Town and won 16 8 and together with Nicola Jones they now go on to the last 16 which will be played at Three Mile Cross on 19th June.
On Sunday morning the mixed double fours were at home to rivals Maidenhead Town and after a very close game Thicket took the honours winning by 2 shots our President Bill Hing the Skip on Rink 2 playing a blinding shot on the last wood of the last end which enabled us to win the game by 2 shots.
Whilst Mixed Double Fours drama was unfolding at Thicket Tina Scherer and Pauline Tuttle two ladies who joined Thicket last year quietly drove over to Great Hollands to play their Senior pairs game after getting lost because of a sat nav malfunction they were not phased by this and went on to win their game. Well done Ladies
Last but not least at a friendly in the afternoon against Three Mile Cross Thicket were bought back down to earth and lost heavily .
