This afternoon we made the return trip to Chandos Park and with the narrow victory last week fresh in our minds hopes were high that we could make it a double. Unfortunately these thoughts were soon a distant memory as we had only 1 winning rink, Ian Ramsay, John Smith & Carol Crick winning 22-12. Matthew Crick, Denise Boult & Roger Crick narrowly lost 17-15 however the other 3 games ended with heavy defeats for Hazells. The final match score was a 110 -69 defeat (our heaviest defeat of the season)

This morning our men travelled to Waddesdon for their Bucks Plate Semi Final against Denham. For many this was their first game at Waddesdon this season however the welcome we received and the standard of the green was up to its usual high standards. Expectations were high in this match against unknown opposition and 3 of the 4 rinks got off to a great start. At the half way stage the match was all square with Hazells still retaining the lead on 3 rinks. Unfortunately fate took a turn for the worse as David James fell ill and had to be replaced by Jack Pipe, who was not prepared to play. With confidence rocked our lead in the other matches started to slip and we ended up just winning on the 1 rink of John Smith, Nick Griffiths & Brian Abigail. Thoughts now turn to our Ladies as they aim to progress 1 step further in the Vi Trundell when they too visit Waddesdon to take on Chesham.
This afternoon 4 triples ventured over to Wing for a friendly match and it was Hazells that once again returned with an 87-49 win. Highest winning rink went to Kim Challinor, Neil Thompson & Anne Farmer winning 28-5, closely followed by Len Tuffs, Norman Bonham & Maureen Warwick who won 24-7

This afternoon we welcomed Chandos Park to Hazells for the first of our games in a week as we will be sending a team back to their green next weekend. Following a heavy shower we got the game underway a few mins late and it was Hazells who got off to a great start leading on 5 of the 6 rinks at the break for tea. However it was the curse of the break that changed the game and although Hazells won 104 - 102 overall we only won on 2 rinks, drawing on 1 and losing on 3. Our highest winning rink this afternoon went to Ann Ramsay, Denise Boult & John Smith winning 29-15
